A letter from the Deep Root Family: 

For the past five years, Deep Root, its founders, and its team members have devoted all of their energy to provide musicians and entertainment professionals a home where they can freely express themselves. The imprint is currently cemented as one of the driving forces behind the presence of Dance Music in Manhattan, and behind the success of many artists within the world of Sync & Licensing.

Today, we consistently work with a family of 60+ DJs & Producers25+ Promoters, and 15+ Freelancers who contribute day in and day out to their respective communities (worldwide) by creating memorable and positive experiences, through musical composition, nightlife production, hospitality, and visual arts.

However, over the past few weeks, the COVID-19 pandemic has tragically impacted all of the nightlifeentertainment, and hospitality community. We’re now asking for the generosity of our supporters to help us assist our family of artists and entertainment professionals who are now in need.

To combat this crisis, we are holding the #UnitedByMusic fundraiser and are humbly asking for your contribution. We will be providing 50% of the donated funds to our team members, artists, and family of promoters and freelancers, facing hardship and obstacles including, but not limited to, emergency healthcare expenses, rent or mortgage payments, utilities, food, and other necessities. The other 50% of proceeds will go directly to The Recording Academy’s non-profit MusiCares, to provide preventative, recovery, and emergency assistance for the health and well-being of all musicians and music professionals in need during this time.

In an attempt to raise as much as possible, Deep Root will be holding a series of Live Streams (on some of the world’s biggest outlets such as Radio FG and Asmallworld to name a few) with world-renown artists, and will be supporting this campaign by donating:
