In order to directly help Ukrainian artists during these hard times, we present the first volume of Peace in Ukraine 🇺🇦 Various Artists series.
On February 24th Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, in an escalation of an older conflict between the two countries sparked back in 2014. The ongoing bombardments and attacks have already left a mark on the civilian population, interrupting the normal lives of hundreds of thousands of people while at least 1.5 million have fled the country and become refugees in neighbouring countries. Along with several other states, Romania engaged in various humanitarian acts, many of which are organised by normal people that wish to help as much as they can.
As music is a universal language that connects cultures beyond borders and we are an independent platform focused on underground electronic music and arts, at this time we stand for peace, so we curated a special Various Artists compilation in order to raise money to help Ukrainian artists during these hard times.
A lot of producers from many countries responded to our initiative, swiftly building on an archive that incorporates various shades and styles of electronic music, from laid-back and serene soundscapes to driving rhythms and textures. The first volume features 15 tracks signed by Ilya Yansima, Maayan Nidam feat. Life on planets, Matheiu & Max Jacobson, Nils Weimann, Odette, Orbit, Paul K, Peshka, Pîrvu, Ramona Yacef & Bill It, Shato, Unisson, Valeria Croft and Yaroslav Lenzyak.
All revenues collected from the sales will be directed to the bank accounts of the Ukrainian artists with whom we managed to get in touch, such as Animated Sounds, Peshka, Komponente, Yansima, Ilya Cheise, Vlad Barocco, Orbit, Osvit, Yaroslav Lenzyak the initiative launched by Antipina Anna & Silat Beksi as well as the Gofundme campaign lunched by Kirik.
