CODE RED : An international benefit compilation for the American Civil Liberties Union.
Verses Records is a collective comprising of: Monica Stroik, Dave Harris, Douglas Kallmeyer, Dempsey Hamilton and Dennis Kane. It was created to release and promote approaches to music that are not represented in popular, mainstream culture.
They’ve done an outstanding job curating this benefit compilation for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), a non partisan, non profit organization which protects our rights and the US constitution.
The compilation is comprised of 40 musicians / artists / groups from 6 countries, assembled and released in just 22 days following the U.S. Elections, in reaction to long term and forthcoming US government corruption. All proceeds will be donated to the ACLU. It was released yesterday, December 1st 2016 and the first donation will be transferred to the ACLU on January 20th, Inauguration Day when the new US president takes office.
I’m delighted to have an exclusive track on this compilation which features a diverse range of electronic styles from ambient, experimental, shoegaze, glitch to neo-classical and a few in between. It’s a very worthy cause and for $5 you’ll get around 3 hours of excellent music.
