Peter Riley AKA Persian’s discography stretches back a couple of decades, but although his musical ventures are both extensive and masterfully produced, little is known about the producer. Most of his catalogue is either self-released or on his family of labels: Persian, Same People, SLJ Recordings and Existence is Resistance – the latter being the home of the original ‘Lost Words’ cut, which has been given a vocal house reshape.
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.
