- All proceeds will go to City Plaza Hotel, an Athens, Greece refuge for and by migrants from Africa and Asia.
A new compilation is raising money for the refuge squat City Plaza Hotel in Athens, Greece.
On CRXSSINGS, Rutger Zuydervelt (AKA Machinefabriek) and Yellow Swans' Gabriel Saloman bring together a range of experimental artists to rework each other's music over 34 collaborative tracks. Featured artists include Lucrecia Dalt, Jan Jelinek, Mira Calix, Mads Emil Nielsen, Jim O'Rourke, Christina Vantzou, Jerusalem In My Heart, Ipek Gorgun, Klara Lewis, Lawrence English and Mark Fell.
All funds raised from this release, out July 1st, will "support [City Plaza Hotel's] struggle to provide material needs for those fleeing economic, environmental, political and military disasters in their home countries," according to the Bandcamp description.
"This compilation in no way claims to represent the voices of refugees and migrants, nor does it represent the scores of incredible musicians from the Middle East, North Africa or Central America whose communities are being disrupted by mass migration," the description continues. "Some of the artists involved are the children of immigrants, or have their own experiences of migration and relocation. All of them share a belief in a basic freedom of movement and stand in solidarity with those migrants and refugees who are struggling to make a better life for their families and themselves."
Listen to a preview of the compilation.
Listen back to a recent episode of RA Exchange's The Hour in which Mira Calix discusses the impact of Brexit on the electronic music community, and read our 2018 feature on Lucrecia Dalt.
