Hope and Bass Michigan Media Outlet, Record Label, and Wesbsite Combating Suicide and the Stigma Surrounding Mental Illness through Music, Advocacy, and Awareness.

Hope and Bass is a new Michigan based Media Outlet focusing on Underground Dance Music and raising awareness for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention. Through donations and musician interaction we raise awareness for mental health issues that so many Americans face today. Our community has yet to really attach a lot of humanitarian efforts to itself. Hope and Bass hopes to join other organizations in raising awareness through different sub-cultures, including Dance Music. http://www.hopeandbass.com/ http://www.twitter.com/hopeandbass http://instagram.com/hope_and_bass http://www.hopeandbass.tumblr.com http://www.soundcloud.com/hopeandbass http://www.mixcloud.com/hopeandbass With each release our artists get to choose which charity portions of profits go to.

Mission: To raise awareness and funding for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention through Dance Music Culture. Also to help other special causes, charities, artists, their families, and more all by pushing our crafts. Something we already are doing, so why not attach a charitable cause to our work. We hope you join us with each release and each cause!

Thanks, this was a fun 4-year ride. I hope you're all well. I'm putting this to rest. The content will eventually be put up elsewhere and the Mixcloud is still up with all the episodes of the podcast. Thanks to all the artists who came along and did mixes for us and helped us out pushing an idea that just came to me one night. I really appreciate it. Thanks again!

I am thinking about putting this to bed.

I am more than likely going to merge this page with my main project Shrbrt. This has been dormant for long enough.

I am going to sit on this for a few more days. Hope you're all well! And I totally understand if you want to unlike this page during the changeover process.

Love you guys.

See ya in 2018...

I can't say it's the end. But it's time to regroup.

Thanks for the love.

Suicide only eliminates the possibilities of things getting better. Life can get equally as bright as it gets dark. Get help if you think you need it. In the age of google, it is really easy to find someone to talk to.

Had a blast at Movement this past weekend. Plenty of photos to come. Hope you're all well.

Help out a great family.

Our dog Belle digested a rope toy a few weeks back. We, along with our Vet thought she would be able to pass it. After a few days of her not eating and acting odd we took her back in for a check up. Thinking it was stress from the move and a new house we were shocked to discover that the rope...

We are downsizing and being fully absorbed into @shrbrtmag as the electronic division. Thank you for the love. Hope and Bass dot com won't be coming back. But the podcast and projects are still on! We are still taking submissions for it! The content won't change. Just the outlet itself or the delivery will change.
I am one guy doing all the writing, designing, photography, videos, social media, a&r, and I have been doing it for two separate entities and it just doesn't make any sense to be so divided anymore. It all merging together is all I really need to calm my scatterbrain.
With SHRBRT I can cover all music not just dance music or punk or folk or whatever. Stay tuned. I love you all so much.

Get help. The programs are there. It's up to you to make the decision to get the help you need. We can only do so much for our people until it is on them. You may not choose to be an addict but choosing to end your life isn't going to make things get better. It eliminates the possibility of it ever getting better. Keep your heads up.

We have been doing this sh*t for going on 3 years. And the dance music community is finally talking about mental health regularly. It's not about who did it first, it's about getting the message out there. If you think you can party for years and expect nothing to happen in the long-term, well you already are showing signs. I think one of my biggest problems with these talks is that it's always about the dj's. When they are outnumbered by partygoers like a few hundred to 1. Not every partygoer are damaging their bodies and minds, nor is every DJ. This sh*t isn't just limited to the dj traveling the world and understanding exhaustion is real. This is for anyone who experiments with drugs past an entry level. You can f**k your life up very easily, I have done it, several times. All the dj's and producers on Hope and Bass have had a past with these issues. A lot of us deal with it every day, and there is no escaping it. Which is why I came up with this idea in the first place.

All I'm saying is this, talk. Talk about it. Talk to your friends. To other partygoers or djs or producers. Seek help if there's even a shred of doubt in your head that you're not ok. More partying won't make your underlying problems go away, either will self-medicating. We're all on the same page about this sh*t in our sub culture, but we really ignore it. Then just look down on addicts when they're too f**ked up. People need actual help, and it's there for you!

Ben Pearce will be one of the participants in a discussion on mental health in the music industry at London's The Pickle Factory next week.

General information

Michigan Media Outlet, Record Label, and Wesbsite Combating Suicide and the Stigma Surrounding Mental Illness through Music, Advocacy, and Awareness. As advocates our main interest is mental health awareness and suicide prevention. The artists who release with us have the option to donate their proceeds to charities and organizations we have chosen or for ones they prefer instead. It's no secret that musicians and fans of underground dance music are built from a different type of framework than others. It seems that the more creative and open people become, the more they become susceptable to social issues. With the music industry blueprint ever changing through independent artists, social media, and networking, artists are working 10x harder for 100x less the pay. With each release on Hope and Bass, the artist gets an equal portion, along with the label, and the charity of their choice. It makes more sense to do some good outside of making music that effects people. http://www.hopeandbass.com/ http://www.twitter.com/hopeandbass http://instagram.com/hope_and_bass http://www.hopeandbass.tumblr.com http://www.soundcloud.com/hopeandbass http://www.mixcloud.com/hopeandbass
