Last month, the dark alternative collective known as EBM Worldwide produced a twelve-hour charity stream known as “Monsters of Industrial Bass.” The show was a raid-style event, in which the viewer can tune in to the currently-streaming artist, then be whisked away to the next DJ or artist in a mass invasion of the next act. With the help of acts such as Matt Hart, Mechanical Vein, and our own STEPHEN29, the event raised over $1,000 for the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria, not bad for twelve hours of the latest sensation in electronic music known as industrial bass.
Now the collaboration is taking over this Friday, as volume two of this show is set to be unleashed on March 19th, beginning at 3pm EDT. This edition will benefit the Black Trans Femmes in the Arts, described as “a community-based arts organization that builds community and mobilizes resources to support Black trans femme artists (artists who were assigned male-at-birth and now identify somewhere underneath the femme umbrella). We organize programming that centers and highlights Black trans femme artists, executive produce projects led by Black trans femme artists, and provide direct to support to Black trans artists."

Acts such as Matt Hart and our own STEPHEN29 are returning for another ride on the raid train, while some new faces such as friend of the Twitch stream Ryuzombeh are joining the madness. In addition, Mechanical Vein are joined by their Hybrid Blak kin Biomechanimal for some proper aural destruction. The full line-up is, in no particular order:
DJ Bug Gigabyte (SINthetik Messiah)
DJ David Craddock
