  • 100% Silk is releasing a compilation in tribute to the victims of last year's Ghost Ship fire in Oakland. According to Pitchfork, half the profits from Silk To Dry The Tears will go to Safer DIY Spaces, an Oakland-based coalition that emerged in the wake of the December 2nd tragedy, which claimed the lives of 36 people while they were at a 100% Silk party. The 31-track release features music by the likes of Golden Teacher, Jupiter Jax, Sapphire Slows and Nackt, AKA Johnny Igaz, who died in the blaze. Octo Octa's contribution, "Not Sure What to Do (Variation Zoning 4)," is a new version of a demo that came out in 2016. Silk To Dry The Tears is out on February 9th. This isn't the first time 100% Silk has paid its respects to the victims—shortly after the fire, the Los Angeles-based label repressed memorial editions of tapes from Nackt and Cherushii, who were both performing at the Ghost Ship event when they died.
