The Prototypes are Nick White and Chris Garvey.

Nick said: “As we are all aware, the situation across the world at the moment is frightening and uncertain. The rise of Covid-19 has left many in hospital fighting for their lives and sadly many have lost the fight, but there is always hope.

“It’s difficult to know what to do in these times as everything can seem incredibly overwhelming but we both feel music can be a hugely positive force globally in whatever form it arrives, and after witnessing the legendary DJ EZ smash his 24-hour UKG set we wanted to do something positive for our scene and for the crisis.

“So with that in mind we are both proud to announce that on April 17 we will be performing a 24 Hour Drum & Bass & Jungle set from 7pm to raise money specifically for the NHS.”

Chris added: “We are very excited to be able to do this and also nervous about the undertaking. We have been taken aback about stories of NHS workers both frontline and behind the scenes risking their lives on a daily basis to help loved ones and help keep us safe. If we can contribute something in some way to help the fight then we will both feel a huge sense of pride. We want to raise as much money as physically possible. We have been overwhelmed by the response from the Drum & Bass scene so far, with artists and labels both supplying us with music from the last 20-plus years and for us this is the perfect time to dive deep into the tunes.”
