Earlier today, former Swedish House Mafia member Steve Angello took to Instagram to post a black and white picture of speakers. He expressed his love for them, and they were obviously pretty expensive and high-quality from the looks of them. This is not the image we are referring to, but it's how this all started. Soon after, an Instagram user by the name "rydri" commented on the post with the following message.
From rydri: "Steve, my daughter is in desperate need of a liver transplant. please check our her Gofundme page (the link is in my bio). Thank you and God bless!"
On many pages this would have been ignored, but Steve commented instantly that he would go check it out. A few minutes later, he wrote that he had donated. An image surfaced soon after with this conversation, and a screen cap of his donation. While $5,000 is small in the spectrum of how much he makes, it's an incredibly powerful statement to those in the EDM world.
There are more important things to spend your money on, and while there's nothing wrong with going out and buying a nice pair of speakers, it's also a big step to balance that out and helping out those in need.
We commend you Steve. Whether you love or hate him, the Size Records boss has our respect for this move. This led to other people donating, and we wish the daughter of the Instagram user the best of luck. We've also included a second image, which includes how people reacted to his donation.
