A really good cause

Saw this post from a couple of other blogs and had to share it. As someone who has had family members touched by cancer (in my case my grandmother battled breast cancer twice), I found it to be moving and will certainly donate my part in the fight against all forms of cancer (and you get some great music out of it as well.)

Bootleg legend Soundhog has prepared an exclusive dance mix for ACID TED. This is not available in the shops or anywhere else. Get it now whilst stocks last. But I am asking for something from you in return.
For those of you who haven't come across Soundhog (or Ben); he is respected for his consistently fantastic bootlegs, his engaging remixes and his ability to rock the dancefloor. He's an essential part of modern bootleg history, but has been noteably quiet of late. Read an interview with GYBO's McSleazy for more details

This mix is one done specially for ACID TED readers. You really won't find it anywhere else. It is an astonishing mix of tracks. Not just the tracks themselves but they way that they have been chopped up and reassembled in Soundhog's inimitable style. The tracklist is:
Finitribe - 101
Bassomatic - Fascinating Rhythm
Sub Sub - Jaggernath
The Prodigy - Poison
Bomb The Bass - Beat Dis (Freestyle Scratch Mix)
DJ Mink - Hey, Hey, Can You Relate?
Renegade Soundwave - Biting My Nails
The 25th Of May - It's Alright
MANIC - I'm Coming Hardcore
Joey Beltram - Energy Flash
Chemical Brothers - Chemical Beats
N-Joi - Malfunction
Digital Orgasm - Running Out Of Time
Mental Cube - Q
Carl Cox - I Want You
2 Bad Mice - Bombscare
Altern-8 - Hypnotic St-8
Fatboy Slim - Song For Lindy
E-Lustrious - Dance No More odd little bits of other things in there.

But I'd like others to benefit from the time that Ben has put in. In particular, to raise money for research on brain tumours in children. If you want a copy of the mix, there are a couple of ways to donate:1. Use the donate button on the sidebar (via PayPal). And I will use your email details to send you the link.

2. Give directly to the Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust (UK) by donating here or Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation (USA) here or to a children's cancer charity in your own country. Once you have done so, you will get an emailed reply from them. Forward that email to me (see side bar) and I will send you a link to the mix.
Please, please donate. How much you donate is up to you (£5 = US$7 / EUR5). Brain tumours are the commonest solid tumours in children in the UK and USA. More children now die from a brain tumour than any other childhood cancer.

So donate and support what he is doing.
