The 11th of March 2011 saw Japan suffer its largest earthquake in history, 9.0 on the Richter scale. The quake was soon followed by an enormous tsunami with waves measuring up to ten meters high.
This natural disaster has wiped out towns, taken thousands and thousands of lives (with even more still missing) and had further knock on affects to several of the countries nuclear facilities. Japan is a calm, patient and dignified Nation and will no doubt build from this disaster, however in order to do that they will need as much help as possible. Japan has long been a Nation obsessed with music, arts, films and creative culture and has provided you with a lot of good music in the past.
It is with that in mind that A Bridge Too Far Recordings and The Find Magazine have teamed up to show financial support to the rescue and rehabilitation efforts that will be ongoing for the coming months if not years. Within 72 hours we came up with this compilation, consisting of mostly unreleased music. Even some brand new material specially made for this compilation, such as the exclusive remix of Benjamin Diggins’ Believe & Renovate featuring Pseudo Slang and a new verse by Joe Kickass.
Other featured artists include Soul Square, Othello (of Lightheaded), Incise, Melodiq, Weedy (of 40 Winks), Teekay (of Dragon Fli Empire), Dela, Kidkanevil, LeftO and many more.
All proceeds will be donated straight to The British Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal.
UPDATE: a total of $1.771,94 has been raised for the victims in Japan with this compilation.
