Mall Grab, DJ Plead And Others Release New Material To Aid Australian Bushfire Relief Effort
Electronic music steps up in times of crisis
Several members of the electronic music community are releasing records to raise funds for bushfire relief charities as Australia suffers from devastating forest and bush fires, which have already claimed the lives of over 24 people, as well as roughly half a billion animals according to one estimate.
Australian producers Mall Grab, Lou Karsh, Logic 1000, and DJ Plead, are among some of the artists who have shared previously unreleased tracks and EPs on Bandcamp, with proceeds going directly to organisations such as the First Nations Fire Relief Fund, NSW Rural Fire Service and the Victorian Bushfire Disaster Appeal. A number of record labels such as Animals Dancing, NLV Records and Public Possession are currently also donating some or all of their proceeds from sales throughout the next few days.
Writing on Instagram, Lou Karsh said: “With so much loss already, increasingly dangerous weather conditions and a useless government there is a lingering feeling of sadness and anxiety in all of us now and for the days to come.”
