Last year Athens-based label Into The Light chose to spotlight Greek producer Angelo Ioakimoglu and his beautiful blissed-out compositions. Recorded in the late 90s, between ’95 and ’97, The Nireus Years presented his ambient and new age works, which sit in a similar vein to today’s demo; a short cut of downtempo acid-tinged rhythms.
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.
