Record label Hedkandi has embarked on a heartwarming mission to make the dream of a 74-year-old techno lover and ex-DJ come true. Robert Johnson, hailing from the Wirral, England, has been an avid music enthusiast since his early days as a DJ at Liverpool’s famed Cabin Club. Introduced to the world of rave music at the age of 40, his passion for techno beats only grew stronger over the years.

However, it was in 2007, at the age of 58, that Robert made his first pilgrimage to the mecca of electronic music – Ibiza. Captivated by the vibrant dance scene and the infectious energy of the island, he embarked on a remarkable tradition, returning to Ibiza every year for an astounding 11 years. Unfortunately, financial constraints forced him to halt his annual trips in recent times.

Enter Hedkandi, the English techno label with a reputation for promoting music that touches the soul. Led by founder Mark Doyle, the label felt compelled to give back to one of their own – a techno legend and a true inspiration to music lovers of all ages. Recognizing Robert’s unwavering passion and his belief that one is never too old to have fun, Hedkandi decided to take matters into their own hands.

In a heartwarming gesture, Hedkandi launched a GoFundMe page, urging fans and music enthusiasts alike to rally behind Robert’s dream and support his journey back to the dancefloors of Ibiza. The crowdfunding campaign aims to cover all expenses, ensuring that the techno veteran can once again bask in the euphoria of the Spanish island’s iconic nightlife.

Mark Doyle, the man behind the initiative, expressed his admiration for Robert’s indomitable spirit and his significant impact on the techno community. To Doyle and the Hedkandi family, Robert is not just a legendary figure; he embodies the essence of the music they hold dear. Their mission is simple – to show their love and appreciation by giving Robert a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will forever be etched in his heart.

The response to the funding page has been overwhelming, with an outpouring of support from fellow music lovers who have been touched by Robert’s story. Friends, fans, and strangers have united to ensure that the techno veteran’s journey to Ibiza becomes a reality.

Robert himself is beyond grateful for the love and kindness he has received. The prospect of returning to Ibiza fills him with joy and excitement. For him, it’s not just about the destination; it’s about the memories, the music, and the camaraderie that make the experience truly magical.

As the crowdfunding campaign gains momentum, it serves as a powerful reminder that music knows no age barriers and that the dancefloor is a place where souls connect beyond time. Robert Johnson’s story is a testament to the enduring power of music, and his upcoming adventure to Ibiza will undoubtedly be a celebration of life, love, and the unbreakable bonds forged on the dancefloor.

In the heart of this heartwarming campaign lies a resounding message: in the world of music, we are all family, and legends like Robert Johnson deserve nothing less than our unwavering support and love.
