[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”] Monstercat Records kick offs 2017 with the gloriously uplifting “Saving Light” from trance superstar Gareth Emery, who has collaborated with Standerwick probably for one of the best releases the label has seen so date.
In 2016 the famous imprint released a slew of well-established producers in the EDM scene, including artists like NERVO, Seven Lions, Slushii and Candyland to the label’s roster, as well as Marshmello, whose Monstercat debut “Alone” went off to become a #1 radio single.
However, “Saving Light” is much more than a big release. Something much more valuable is at stake: human life. As Your EDM mentions, more often than we’d like to admit, bullying and prejudice results in the tragedy of suicide. No matter how much regret we hold, suicide can’t be undone. In spite of that, Monstercat is looking to make a change in the world. The music video for “Saving Light” displays the harmful effects of bullying and shows how just one friend can save a life.
Throughout the month of February, Monstercat will be donating all profits from “Saving Light” to Ditch the Label in hopes of permanently ending bullying. Donate here or buy the track below to support the cause. If you’re personally struggling with bullying or being bullied, please don’t hesitate to follow this link and get help.
