Cookie Monsta, one of the most popular DJs in the world of dubstep, sadly passed away on October 2, 2020. The artist from Nottingham, UK died at 31-years-old and for over a decade, he had a profound influence on the dubstep scene. Aside from entertaining fans worldwide, Cookie Monsta was also a loving father to his son Olly.
To support Olly, the Circus Records record label is working together with Cookie Monsta’s family to launch a crowdfunding campaign. According to the campaign’s website (which everyone can donate to), Circus Records stated, “Our aim is to raise a trust fund that can help Olly later in life. It will never replace the loss of his father but together, we can make a difference”.
Awareness for the crowdfunding campaign
To raise awareness for the crowdfunding campaign, Circus Records also teamed up with Bassrush. The collaboration is for a tribute stream titled “Raising A Trust For Olly“. This touching livestream will feature notable stars such as Flux Pavilion, Feed Me and Doctor P B2B Chime.
Additionally, “Raising A Trust For Olly” will include Cookie Monsta’s collaborative set with Doctor P and Funt Case from EDC Las Vegas 2016. The memorable set can be considered as a celebration of the three prominent artists from Circus Records. The event will stream live on Friday, November 6, 2020 at 7 p.m. PST (10 p.m. EST) via Insomniac TV.
