The online auction runs from December 9 through December 22, featuring amazing items from several generous donors, including (in alphabetical order) The BPM Festival, Dubspot, Fool’s Gold Records, Fusicology, Goldenvoice, HARD, House of Blues, Insomniac, Krewella, LED, Major Lazer, Mysteryland USA, Native Instruments, Pattern Bar, Pioneer, Ultra Music Festival, USC Events and more.

In conjunction with the online auction, A POSITIVE SPIN will host a day of DJ and production workshops on Saturday, December 14 at The Optimist Youth Home in East Los Angeles. Fifty youths ages 13-18 who are wards of the state (in the foster system) will get a chance to learn various aspects of DJing and production (turntables, CDJs, beat-making and more) from some of electronic music’s biggest names including (in alphabetical order): A-Trak, AC Slater, Big Syphe, Craze, Flinch, Harvard Bass, Kill The Noise, Klever, Mr Choc, Protohype, Richard Vission, Tittsworth and Valentino Khan.

The event is being coordinated by Candice Fliedner (We Are The Movement and Optimist Youth Homes & Family Services) with the involvement of Denise Melanson. Promotional is support provided by The Firm Graphics, Plexi PR, fusicology, and Universal Rhythm.
