When Soul Clap’s Eli Goldstein and Charlie Levine prepped for Miami Music Week this past March, the longtime DJ/production pair had big ideas about 2020. For one, it was to be the funky duo’s 20th visit to Winter Music Conference and they looked forward to a week of special gigs.
Of course, things came to a halt and the pair had to re-evaluate the year’s activities. So what did they do? For one, they committed themselves to stream more content, both musical and conversational. Perhaps more notably, however, they co-founded Rave The Vote, a movement dedicated to boost voter registration for the Nov. 3 presidential election.
With some of America’s best-loved DJs in tow, Rave The Vote presented an event series that’s split into four, monthly 12-hour broadcasts on Twitch’s Lost Resort channel. With one event under its belt (this past July 24), Rave The Vote streamed Aug. 14, Sept. 11 and Oct. 2. Those events will include musical sets from The Black Madonna, A-Trak, Carl Craig, DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Pierre, Inner City, Justin Martin, Osunlade, Sofi Tukker, and TOKiMONSTA, among others. The events also offered topical discussions, facilitated mid-event by Soul Clap, and provided an online page for voter registration and for donations to The Movement for Black Lives.
Soul Clap’s Charlie Levine recently paid a visit to deliver a live stream set from the iconic Club Space Miami and this one is sure to have you moving and grooving through the middle of the week. Enjoy!
