On 11th March 2011, an unheard of disaster hit the north east coast of Japan's Honshu Island. The largest earthquake on record and the resulting tsunami damaged and swept away a vast area in the region. Currently the death toll looks set to rise beyond 20,000 and for the hundreds of thousands still staying in temporary shelters as the situation remains uncertain.
This catastrophic event has had a huge impact on us, and we began to think of a way to help the victims as musicians, DJs and artists. We believe that music is a positive force that can be used to instill hope in people's hears, so we decided to ask Japanese artists from around the country to contribute to a charity compilation in order to raise money to help those affected. In one week, the number of contributors grew from a few, to many, and began to reach beyond the shores of Japan to include artists from all over the world.
"Something We Can Do" features 15 previously unreleased tracks from some of the most revered names in the world of Drum & Bass and Dance Music today. 100% of the profits from the sales of the album will be donated to the Japanese Redcross to aid and assist the unfortunate victims of this tragic event. The album is available digitally from our bandcamp shop and iTunes and will be available on Beatport very soon.
