Day 23 of our 2020 charity Advent Calendar, in aid of You Make It & Project Protect.
West London DJ and producer p-rallel‘s has packed a lot into the last few years. As well as holding down a monthly slot on NTS Radio, he’s spent time as Slowthai’s touring DJ, had a spell as a resident at Phonox, and that’s on top of lining up his own releases — the most recent of which saw him collaborate with the likes of Lord Apex and Greentea Peng.
Today he gives us ‘Call It Murder’, a two-minute instrumental beat that layers chopped Ini Kamoze vocals samples over crisp percussion, warm bass and dreamy pads.
“Made in 2018, inspired by the film ‘Yardie’ which was also an inspiration for my EP, Soundboy.”
Stamp The Wax · Day 23: p-rallel – Call It Murder [2:07]
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.
Check the below playlist for all tracks in our Calendar.
