£1,210raised of £1,000 target by 59 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,000 to Zmatsutsi after 7 grands worth of equipment went up in smoke following their car randomly exploding on route to the gig.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Last week our friends Zmatsutsi were on route to their first ever live gig in Berlin. After quite literally years in the making, they loaded the car (having just picked it up from the garage) and began the long drive from Leeds to Berlin when Tragedy struck a stonestrhow from home on the A1 and their car caught fire and then exploded!

Fortunately everyone managed to escape unscathed, but ALL their synths, drum machines and music equiptment subsequently went up in smoke, over 7 grands worth of gear gone.

Nothing was insured and none of this could have been forseen, anyone making music or at least involved in this world I'm sure can't even begin to believe how this must feel. We are aiming to raise cash so they can get themselves a synth and drum machine so they can get started again and keep making the wrong records for the right people alongside slightly begin to fill the void thats been left.

Items gone:

Sequential circuits pro one

Korg polysix

Moog prodigy

Moog minitaur

Akai Mpc 1000

Vermona DRM 1 drum synth

Mackie 1402 VLZ

Alesis sample pad pro

& Mics, Cv/midi converters, effects, leads, stands, etc

Not to mention all data lost on several laptops.

Anything you could donate would be a huge help
