A Wale song I actually like. Shocker.

I first heard Ed on Mervin Martin's Diesel Radio Show and was blown away. Caught him live for the first time last week, at Southbank, as part of Writing's On The Wall (the brain child of Ctrl.Alt.Shift's deputy editor Dwain Lucktung). He's not only a great performer but a top bloke with a massive future ahead of him. Flying out to LA soon expect to hear alot more from Ed this year.

So you've probably clocked every man, woman and their dog is getting involved with Pass Out. Unsurprising given how big the beat is but Tinie did set the standard. Do like what Shimmer's doing but there's a few Minaj moments too... Make of that what you will.

Party Like A Rockstar, Donaeo and Ctrl.Alt.Shift presents Go Hard 4 Haiti
Funky house don, Donaeo, and the Godfather of grime, Wiley, headline Go Hard 4 Haiti, a club night donating all proceeds to the emergency appeal for Haiti.
Taking over Club Pure for one night only, Galaxy FM's Steve Sutherland is joined on the decks by one of Ctrl.Alt.Shift ambassadors, 1Xtra's DJ Target. Microphone duties are reserved for Wiley ('Take That'), Bashy ('Black Boys'), Princess Nyah ('Frontline') and Marvell (Double S, Vertex and Shocka).
Date: Friday 12th February 2010
Venue: Pure Nightclub, Octagon Parade, High Wycombe HP11 2HU
Minimum donation of £5 on the door.
All proceeds will go to the emergency appeal for Haiti.
Following the success of London's Rave 4 Haiti, that raised over £10,000 and saw over 3,000 people queueing to be a part of a historic clubbing moment, Ctrl.Alt.Shift, the movement for a new generation fighting social and global injustice have joined forces with Donaeo, responsible for club anthems including 'Party Hard' and garage classic 'Bounce', to give non-Londoners a chance to do something for Haiti.
"The reality is not all young people would think to donate money online. I saw what the Rave 4 Haiti did, bringing people together and also allowing everyone - even if they only had a fiver - to do something for the cause." Donaeo explained, from his studio.
"When I saw the disaster I wanted to do something but didn't know what. After performing at the London event myself, I thought maybe I could try and so something myself... When Club Pure rang us about availability, it was as if it was meant to happen, so I rang Chantelle Fiddy, editor of Ctrl.Alt.Shift, the coolest and most pro-active charity movement I'm aware of at the moment, and Go Hard 4 Haiti was born."

About Ctrl.Alt.Shift: Ctrl.Alt.Shift is the experimental youth initiative politicising a new generation of activists for social justice and global change. Using creativity, photography, film, stories, illustrations and music, it aims to give a voice to the silent majority. www.ctrlaltshift.co.uk
Background information on Haiti:
Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, with 80% of the 9 million population living under the poverty line. 70% of the population has no formal job, land or tools to survive. An earthquake of this magnitude will seriously affect already impoverished communities which are already vulnerable to damage from frequent natural disasters.
What our partners are doing:
Our partners are sourcing emergency relief items for distribution to more than 15,000 people in eight communities. We are targeting areas that are getting little help from other agencies. Five Haitian partners and our Dominican Republic partners – Solidaridad Fronteriza a DR partner based at the northern border, and the Jesuit Refugee and Migrant Service) hope to provide food, tents, hygiene kits, blankets, jerry cans for water and water purifiers. APROFISA, a specialist healthcare organisation, and will also be providing medical support. As of Saturday, 16th of January 2010, every single one of our partners in the Dominican Republic is assisting in the relief effort in Haiti.
