Needs is a not-for-profit record label and collective lovingly curated by Bobby Pleasure.
“We believe in people. The concept of the label is to use music as a medium to spread love, unity and the idea of giving back. Promoting harmony and togetherness rather than isolation and estrangement, each release and accompanying event will act as a support stream to various issues within society such as mental health, homelessness and equality.”
The first release features tracks from Hubie Davison, Johannes Albert, DJ Swagger and Bobby Pleasure. Four artists from different countries of the world who all have the needs factor, and have very kindly donated their music to the dance floor.
The launch party took place on the 2nd September at Grow, Hackney. Featuring mindfulness workshops with Mind during the day, and Hubie Davison, Bobby Pleasure, Adam Curtain and Wayne Holland providing the evening soundtrack.
