RELEASE Date: May 7 2009

dubSpot Debuts Charitable Mix CD Series with Funk Aid for Africa
First Release Benefits Humanitarian Organization NextAid

dubSpot, New York City’s one-of-a-kind electronic music production and DJ training institute, has undertaken its first nationwide philanthropic project with a series of charitable mix CDs. The first, Funk Aid for Africa, will benefit Los Angeles-based humanitarian organization, NextAid. An inspired collage of funk, soul, and Latin tunes created by DJ OBaH, Funk Aid for Africa features songs by twenty different artists including Ticklah, Ursula Rucker, King Britt, Chico Mann, The Lions, & Ocote Soul Sounds. This series of dubSpot-produced benefit compilations will raise funds for various projects by harnessing the positive power of music. The goal for this compilation is to raise awareness and much needed funds for African children orphaned by the AIDS crisis. BFM Digital, Inc. is on board to digitally distribute the release globally.

The nationwide release party is scheduled for May 7, 2009 at the Elbo Room in San Francisco (647 Valencia St., SF, CA 94110) featuring J Boogie, DJ OBaH, Happy Mayfield (live), and the Pleasuremaker Band. For more information on this release and the event, please visit For more information on dubSpot, please visit

Dan Giove, the founder of dubSpot, has always believed that education is fundamentally steeped in the ethics of altruism and selflessness. Much of the musical community shares in this feeling; it’s just not about the individual. It is in this spirit that all of the musicians involved with the Funk Aid mix have generously donated their art and their time in deference to a greater cause. Most important, 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this compilation are going directly to charity. These funds will aid in the construction a ‘green’ environment, including a playground and nursery school, for the children of Youth with a Vision (YWAV), a South African organization that runs AIDS prevention programs in Dennilton, South Africa. These facilities are part of NextAid’s and YWAV’s 20 structure children’s village that will house 30 children orphaned by AIDS, an after-school center for hundreds of children living off site, and an economic hub for the surrounding community.

Funk Aid has been incredibly well received by the musical community, both for its motives and its quality. Gunnar Hissam of Om Records says that “Funk Aid for Africa is everything a good mix CD should be, funky, uplifting and for the children. Props go out to all the musicians for donating the amazing music and for dubSpot and NextAid for making it all happen. God bless you!”

The May 7th event will mark the first leg of an 8-city DubSpot tour. The ‘Ableton Live 8 U.S. Sessions Tour,’ is a series of weekend workshops designed to showcase the best of what dubSpot’s school has to offer. With multiple sections planned each day, these presentations will feature dubSpot instructors and nationally renowned artists alike. Each session will detail the essentials of musical production and performance, while using the most advanced production software available: Ableton Live 8.

a Nobel individual

This is for all those Obama haters:

You know Barack writes his own speeches so enjoy!


This morning, Michelle and I awoke to some surprising and humbling news. At 6 a.m., we received word that I'd been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009.

To be honest, I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative figures who've been honored by this prize -- men and women who've inspired me and inspired the entire world through their courageous pursuit of peace.

But I also know that throughout history the Nobel Peace Prize has not just been used to honor specific achievement; it's also been used as a means to give momentum to a set of causes.

That is why I've said that I will accept this award as a call to action, a call for all nations and all peoples to confront the common challenges of the 21st century. These challenges won't all be met during my presidency, or even my lifetime. But I know these challenges can be met so long as it's recognized that they will not be met by one person or one nation alone.

This award -- and the call to action that comes with it -- does not belong simply to me or my administration; it belongs to all people around the world who have fought for justice and for peace. And most of all, it belongs to you, the men and women of America, who have dared to hope and have worked so hard to make our world a little better.

So today we humbly recommit to the important work that we've begun together. I'm grateful that you've stood with me thus far, and I'm honored to continue our vital work in the years to come.

Thank you,

President Barack Obama
