The Butterfly Effect – Benefit Party
The Butterfly Effect ~ Benefit PartDJs kindly offering us thier time and talent in no particular order; Nomad Spectrum, Maxx, Pat Hurley, King Azid and John Mitchell. ♥ Tickets will be £9 plus bf or £10 on the door. “Butterfly Effect; n 1. (General Physics) the idea, used in chaos theory, that a very small difference in the initial state of a physical system can make a significant difference to the state at some later time” So we decided to throw a benefit party to raise some much needed cash for The Pilion Trust…… if we can make a small difference by donating some time, energy and cash, perhaps the young people who benefit from the amazing work done at the crash pad, can then go on and make a difference with thier own effect on the world :) ♥
The money will go towards funding the ‘Crash Pad-Youth Shelter’. Over the last three years, during the winter months, we have opened a night shelter specifically for young people between 16 and 23 yrs of age who have become homeless. During this period 350 young people have accessed the project; 60% of those had suffered some form of harm and abuse and/or have no family members to support them. Whilst keeping these young people safe from the many dangers of street life and the downward spiral that large numbers loose themselves in; We manage to assess each person holistically for their current needs and future plans. Our “˜Enhanced Community Outreach’ service work tirelessly on housing and other complex issues that may arise including; mental health, sexual abuse, domestic violence and substance misuse in partnership with the Islington Mentoring Aftercare Enterprise who focus on employment, education and training alongside life skills and other meaningful activity.

King Azid UK Acid Techno DJ and general mad bastard. ( No kidding ,Ive got the paper to prove it :-) I started raving back in Leeds in 89/90 and got into the warehouse scene in Blackburn. I eventually moved to Slough ad started DJing. I always loved the Acid/Techno tracks at raves ad once I was introduced to the London warehouse scene its been Acid/Techno ever since. I started playing in the free party scene in London with virus or ultavirus as they were originally known. Also played with Mainline, Jibba (Where are you now Jake?) and with the Slough massive. Memorable moments were NYE at Manor House playing with UNSOUND. Influences and Inspirations: SPIRAL TRIBE. I still love the free (Not so free nowadays) partys and regularly hit London for a squat party. Respect to the dedicated.
