Everybody can dance now even if you're staying home and staying safe.

Detroit native GRiZ will be one of 24 artists taking part in Beatport Presents: Reconnect, a 24-hour live global DJ marathon that kicks off at 3 p.m. Friday, March 27. Others taking part include Carl Cox, Bonobo, Nina Kravitz, RUFUS DU SOL, A-Trak, Nicole Moudaber and more, each playing a one-hour set, streamed on twitch.tv.

Robb McDaniels said in announcing the event that, "With so many of us sheltered in our homes, wanting to stay connected to the people and music that plays such a positive role in our lives, Beatport and the passionate DJ community we work with on a daily basis feel compelled to deliver a unique music experience directly into homes across the world."

During the webcast, viewers also will be able to make donations that will be administered by the Association For Electronic Music (AFEM) and distributed to the World Health Organization's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund and the AFEM Members COVID-19 Hardship fund, the latter for artists losing revenue during the coronavirus-related shutdowns. Donors will be eligible for music and merchandise giveaways during the marathon.
