Techno titan Alan Fitzpatrick took to Instagram recently to express his convictions about the downsides of social media. Coincidence or not, the UK producer, dj, and label boss‘ message somewhat synchronizes with May being “Mental Health Awareness” month in the United States.

Alan Fitzpatrick- who was gracious enough to share his inspirational figures in our INSPIRED series just last November- posted the below on his IG story:
Although some might point out the irony of using social media to protest, as Fitzpatrick alluded himself, the artist’s viewpoint is focused on the over reliance the music community has of social platforms. Regardless of whether you agree with the Fitzpatrick or not, it is still an important to recognize your own well being at all times, not just for this month, and not just in the US, but all around the world.
