Isle of Wight musician and DJ, David Baker, has been working with Chalkpit Cassette Club to release the charity compilation, MND Can Get In The Solent.

The brand new mix tape, with artwork from Ellen Adams, features artists from the Isle of Wight and Southampton, including Coach Party, The Bees and Plastic Mermaids.

Last year, David was diagnosed with MND and he now wants to raise money for those in a similar position.

Compilation curator, David, said: "I grew up on the Isle of Wight and was in various bands prior to moving to Southampton.

"Over the years, I have met so many talented musicians and, after my diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease, I have been given the opportunity to ask many of them to donate a song to this compilation.

"All profits will go to the Hampshire and Isle of Wight branches of the MNDA, to fund research and support for fellow sufferers."

MND affects up to 5,000 UK adults. There is a one in 300 risk of getting MND across a lifetime and it can affect adults of any age, but is more likely to affect people aged over 50.

David has been raising money since his diagnosis, through setting up a Just Giving page.

He has raised nearly £10,000 so far, by doing DJ sets, gigs, with his band Bobby I Can Fly, and a charity walk.

Another £10,000 has already been raised in David's name, by friends and family who have run, swum, walked, gigged, baked and quizzed.

Cassettes played a massive part in David's early music life and were the obvious choice of medium for this charity album.

Chalkpits Records' Silas Gregory, who founded the Chalkpit Cassette Club to promote this way of listening to music, is donating all proceeds to the MNDA.

Artists represented on the tape are: Coach Party, who have supported Queens of the Stone Age and have played Glastonbury; 2002 Mercury Music Prize-nominated, The Bees, who returned for a series of live shows this year; Former Glastonbury act, Plastic Mermaids;  Four Letter Feeling; Punk band, George Street Kids, who supported Buzzcocks, on the Isle of Wight; Owen Hackett; Xockha; Alan Daysh; Teenage Waitress; Dan O’Farrell; Dead Rabbits; Lucas & King; Jazzy-blues style trio, Mostly Jones; Brian Munro; Mystery School; Goo Lagoon; Jake Goodrum; Legendary Island band, Bobby I Can Fly; Anna Baker; and Island singer-songwriter Paul Armfield.

Silas said: "David is truly inspiring for the work he is doing while also managing his diagnosis.

"We are thrilled to be able to support David in putting together this compilation for such an important charity through the power of our local music community."
