House Pioneer Derrick Harris (Sleezy D) Funeral

Our brother and Acid House Pioneer Derrick "Sleezy D" Harris has died of kidney failure. He had no insurance. 

When he made "I've Lost Control" in 1984, there was absolutely  nothing like it anywhere, a completely new sound that inspired clubbers all over the world, peaking with the "Summer Of Love" Derrick was the life of every single party he went to, dancing from the first song to the last every time. 

Anyone anywhere that calls themselves a raver has this man to thank for it. 

This campaign is to pay for his funeral expenses and provide help for his family for difficult times ahead.
