Mixmag has teamed up with Difference Makers and DJ Shy One for a renewable-powered DJ livestream.
The event will take place at Scotland’s biggest hydroelectric power station and is to challenge the way the music industry should consider its environmental impact.
The virtual stream will be hosted by Mixmag with Shy One to perform a diverse mix, that will be live on YouTube today.
Shy One said: “I’m used to playing at radio station studios and dark nightclubs rather than the wide-open spaces of the Scottish Highlands, so this is definitely a new DJ experience for me!"
"Finding a way to address the issues of climate change and the current energy crisis through my artform is important for me and I know is a big issue for anyone concerned with their impact.”
President Professor Danielle George MBE of IET who work with the aim to promote innovation, said: “Even before millions were confined to their homes by a global pandemic, we’ve seen an exponential increase in the use of streaming around the world, something only made possible by developments in STEM.
“Bringing entertainment to the masses is a wonderful thing, but we also believe as an organisation representing STEM pioneers, we also have a responsibility to consider, investigate and understand the energy costs.
“This exceptional event is proof of concept that a greener, cleaner future is possible as we aim to raise awareness of STEM among young people and how it can make an impact on the world’s biggest challenges.”
