Next week Thursday 8th October, will mark the 12th anniversary since the passing of ACLT inspiration, Daniel De-Gale.

To remember Daniel and celebrate his legacy, his childhood friend DJ Tailor (Oliver Greaves) will be embarking on a 12- hour DJ set, labelled PlayzoFM.

The set will be live streamed via YouTube between 10am-10pm and will also feature a host of celebrity guest DJ’s, who will be spinning the decks for up to 30 minutes each to complement the 12-hour show. The celebrity guest sets will be pre-recorded, with DJ Tailor leading the show live, for the majority of the day.

Oliver Greaves, a Production Specialist and digital content creator first developed the idea in 2018 in remembrance of Daniel.

Oliver Greaves said: “In 2008, at the prime age of 21, I experienced a heavy loss which I still feel to this day, when Daniel ‘Playzo’ De-Gale passed away. I lost one of my closest childhood friends. Daniel’s character and aura were larger than life itself. We both were huge fans of the underground UK Garage scene, so it was throughout love of this genre of music we developed a strong organic bond. His bedroom sound system inspired me to get into DJ’ing myself and when he found out I made beats he wanted to learn how to develop those skills too.”

The first PlayzoFM 12-hour DJ set two years ago was a success, seeing Oliver smash through his initial target of £500, going on to raise over £2200, with all proceeds being donated to ACLT.

For this year Oliver is attempting to raise £2,000. He is hoping to achieve his target, with the additional support from some of ACLT’s celebrity DJ friends, including Soul II Soul front man Jazzie B, DJ Spoony, Afrobeats DJ Abrantee and Breakfast show radio host Martin Jay, of the now defunct Choice FM. Each DJ will provide a pre-filmed DJ set where they are spinning the decks for up to 30 minutes each to complement the 12-hour show.

Pre-filmed shout-outs will also be shown during the live YouTube stream from celebrities who knew and supported Daniel’s campaign over the year’s.

The #PlayzoFM2020 12-hour DJ set, hosted by DJ Tailor will be available to watch via live stream on YouTube on Thursday 8th October, from 10am – 10pm. To watch visit DJ Tailor YouTube page here.
