Last year not-for-profit label Needs was born with a simple philosophy; to support charities through lovingly curated releases. After two releases in aid of mental health charity Mind and homelessness charity Crisis, label boss Bobby Pleasure has pledged all profits from the third instalment to support Help Refugees. The third VA series features tracks from Lord Of The Isles, Mehmet Aslan, Petwo Evans, Nick Gynn and, today’s premiere, Bartellow. With previous releases on ESP Institute and several EPs on Public Possession as Tambien, a collaborative project with Marvin & Valentino, Bartellow’s ‘1001 (Skrillex Version)’ makes use of shuffling drum patterns and melodic trance-inducing keys for an altogether tribal affair.
Needs003 will be released on 16th April. Pre-order your copy.
