Vocalist, producer, poet and 30/70 collective member, Allysha Joy amidst releasing her latest record Light It Again EP with First Word Records, kindly found some time to help us out with even more of her music.
In this ambient jazz electronica, she rhapsodizes with sincerity and faultless harmony in the space beautifully created between sustained oscillating chords and shuffling drums. All before opening up the track with added bounce and energy driving it all hope with jazz chords stabs and punchy percussion.
“This one’s for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Naomi Klein and all the climate scientist warriors! All we want for Christmas is a Green New Deal! In Australia and America and the world over, we need climate action and we need climate justice NOW to ensure a bright future for all! Blessings upon this music and you dear listener, may it inspire beauty and change! X”
This year we’ve chosen to split profits from the release between two charities, both of whom are doing important work within their respective fields.
The first charity is London-based organisation You Make It, a creative programme that offers young women access to tools, networks and experiences — group learning, 1-1 mentoring, work experience, start-up support and 1-1 pastoral support — giving them the confidence to transform their lives through personal empowerment.
The second is Nigeria-based initiative Project Protect, a subdivision of Burna Boy’s charitable NGO The Reach, launched to help provide financial, medical and legal resources for EndSars protestors during and after the protests.
