Maceo Plex is taking a public stand against the recent violence in Charlottesville, Virginia and President Donald Trump’s response to the actions of the white supremacists and neo-Nazis. The Cuban-American is rallying the dance community to host a free party in Charlottesville “to promote & dance for unity & equality”.
While no event has been solidified at the time of posting, Plex did amplify the message to Virginia-based promoters via Twitter on 17th August.
A number of fellow artists including Soul Clap, Nu Androids and Modeselektor have shown keen interest in participation.
