IN TESLA WE TRUST is a fundraiser thrown by Nairobi’s deejay’s in support of the family of the recently deceased Brian Gachuhi.
We all were deeply saddened by the departure to the skies of our dear friend Brian Gachuhi. Brian was at the heart of the House Movement in Kenya and dedicated so much of his time and energy to help elevate the genre here.
It’s no strange coicidence that some of the earliest memories of many of today’s DJs are of Brian dancing in the front row of their first gigs.
If you look at the iconic events of the year like Earthdance and Beachlife and Temple, Brian was able to take anyone of these and tell you stories from theinception year of the event until the most recent edition. He was the all-round party animal that your eyes would not need more than few seconds to spot wherever you landed and Dance Music was playing.
5 months before Brian left us, he and his wife Akaco brought forward to this world a beautiful baby boy. They named him Tesla.
Today, we, Brian’s large and extended family, feel that we owe it to Brian to help in securing Tesla’s bright future.
In a mass effort that is very rarely witnessed, more than 40 DJs will be playing for free in an event that we dubbed “In Tesla we Trust” to help raise funds for Tesla’s education. From the DJ’s, to the venue, to the sound / light / production team, we’ve all come together to bring you a night of dancing that Brian was known for and remembered by. 100% of the proceeds of the event will go towards a fund for Tesla.
This would have also been Brian’s dream event, because he would have found all his favorite DJs and all his friends in the same place at the same time.
Let’s come numerous, raise a toast for Brian, dance to his preferred tunes, and secure a bright future for his son.
The gate fee is the minimum contribution. Those who would like to contribute more than the gate fee into Tesla’s fund are very welcome to do so while purchasing their ticket at the gate.
