In 2014, Resident Advisor organised the #Cycle2ADEto raise money for Bridges for Music. The cycle from London to Amsterdam was made up of 35 riders from the music industry including Midland, Chris Liebing and Jeremy Underground Paris. The cycle raised over £100,000, and all of the money raised was used to build a music and entrepreneurship school in Langa, a township in South Africa. This week, the school officially opened. A huge thank you to everyone that donated to the cycle, as well as those who participated. Head to the Bridges website via the link in our bio to see how you can support the school.

We revisit Sasha’s “Xpander” in this weekend’s Rewind review. Released in 1999, it’s among the best trance tracks ever made. It’s lush, melodic and emotional, capturing the essence of trance music. “Xpander” has soundtracked thousands of dance floors, and was even performed live with an orchestra at the Barbican. Head to the link in our bio to hear its story. 📷: @latenighttalesofficial
