Never underestimate the Ambient community to rally together in times of need. There is a history of charity compilations that have come out over the years including “For Nihon”, “Losing Today” and “Kashin” to name a few. The latest is from the Past Inside The Present label who have drawn together twenty-eight artists, some from their existing roster, some from their future roster and some like minded allies. Names such as 36, Black Swan, The Green Kingdom, Olan Mill, Wayne Robert Thomas, Tyresta, worriedaboutsatan and others have leant their considerable talents to an album designed to raise money for the Bahamian branch of The International Red Cross. The album is pay what you want with a minimum of $1 with 100% of profits being passed on and the label and artists should be congratulated for rallying together so quickly and ethically.
“This compilation is dedicated to the people that have been impacted by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas. The immense physical destruction on the Bahamian islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama are only now beginning to grasp the devastating personal toll for families who have lost so much in Hurricane Dorian.
The killer storm, the strongest ever to make landfall in the country, destroyed many homes, and in some cases, entire neighborhoods were turned into rubble. Though the Bahamas experiences hurricanes frequently, Hurricane Dorian, which made landfall as a Category 5, has caused “generational devastation.”
In this era of the 24-hour news cycle, we sometimes can feel overwhelmed and powerless to make a difference, but in reality, it is easier than ever to contribute. We are asking for your help. PITP will provide 100% of the proceeds of this compilation to the Bahamas branch of the International Red Cross. We ask that you donate what you can to help support the disaster relief efforts from the devastating effects of Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas.”
