Moonbase announces massive charity fundraiser, Greymatter, with Dro Carey, Akouo & more

After spending the start of 2018 between hospital rooms and surgeries, Sydney producer MOONBASE has lived through the worst of it. What began as bouts of dizziness, migraines nausea and much more over the past year, he went in for a CT scan. The scan revealed that the symptoms he was experiencing were being caused by a deadly tumour in his head that was growing against his brain stem.

This meant that he was in desperate need of emergency brain surgery, so after many stitches, metal plating and a lot of time to recover, he's back.

He's back making music, but he's also out here making a difference too.

As part of this charity collaboration, MOONBASE and his label Trench Records have put together a massive event that's happening on October 5th at the Oxford Art Factory in Sydney called Greymatter. All ticket proceeds will be going to CBCF in the pursuit of awareness and research. With that being said, the fundraising event will be focused on showcasing up and coming Australian artists united under a singular cause.

He's put together a strong lineup of locals, featuring the likes of DRO CAREY, new Trench Records signee AKOUO, some huge local DJs like FLEXMAMIJADE LE FLAYMOWGLY MAY, and of course sets from Trench Records legends TiberTobacco Rat and Moonbase himself.
