Together With Ukraine seeks to provide relief to Ukraine’s humanitarian crisis through the sounds of over 100 drum and bass artists from around the globe!
War is hardly pretty, and sadly, the people and civilians on the ground tend to suffer the brunt of the hammer of political whims. Such a crisis of humanity plays out around the globe, but that does not mean you cannot take action to ease the suffering of those under shelling. And with that in mind, a brand new compilation from the history books of drum and bass spurs action from fans worldwide on Together With Ukraine.
Together With Ukraine is the brainchild of seven European drum and bass lovers to raise funds supporting the people of Ukraine. Together, the sales of the compilation turn into funds supporting the Ukrainian Red Cross in overcoming the human crisis of meal kits, hygiene products, shelter, and, of course, emergency services like firefighting and triage of the injured. Thanks to the transparent communication to the community backing the project, we know that donations of over £80,000 have already been made to this cause.
As a package, Together With Ukraine comes not only with 136 tracks from a plethora of artists from 13 labels, but also over 30 pieces of digital art. The moods and sounds take on a new meaning as we view life through the lens of wartime conflict. If you need some expectation on the style of sounds present, gaze at the below list of labels involved hoping to peak your eardrums and call you to action. This includes Critical Music, Hospital Records, Ram Records, Secret Operations, Shogun Audio, Transparent Audio, Metalheadz, Dispatch Recordings, Overview, DIVIDID, Blackout Music, YUKU, and Signature Recordings.
Stay up to date on the donations over on Bandcamp, and some of the project leads live in Ukraine too. Give a little, or a lot, to the brothers and sisters caught in the path of this wayward conflict. Do not forget to cut a groove to the new and old beats you just grabbed, as we celebrate the small center of peace we live in hoping for a brighter tomorrow.
This is a Bandcamp exclusive. Donations start at just £12 (all currency accepted; Bandcamp converts the transaction to the seller’s currency) to support the Ukrainian Red Cross Society during this crisis.
