Day 17 of our 2019 charity Advent Calendar, in aid of War Child.
A heady concoction of acidic basslines, airy pads, ghostlike vocals, ravey piano arpeggios and chuggy DnB drums from Music From Memory mainstay Dazion.
“This was one of the first tracks I made when I re-discovered my Roland MC-303 Groovebox. Initially I wanted to explore a drum n bass kind of direction, but it ended up way more…spiritual I guess. The vocal is from this super sick royalty free sample CD I found at a thrift store.”
Our featured charity for 2019 is War Child, whose work in post-conflict zones is done a bit differently. They recognise humans need more than just food and shelter to flourish after a war, breaking the cycle that leads to repeated conflicts by giving them purpose, education and cultural enrichment.
The dance floor has long-since been a safe space for the displaced, marginalised and persecuted to find community and expression. Safe Spaces represent the core of War Child’s work, providing vital refuge for young people to play, learn and regain their childhood.
Check the below playlist for all tracks in our Calendar.
