Officially out on December 26th, but available right here for the quick ones, is the 3rd volume in the Side-Line powered charity compilation series “Face The Beat”.
“Face The Beat: Session 3” counts 63 tracks from electro / industrial / experimental bands based allover the world. They have one thing in common, they all are supporting our charity work, which this time will go to supporting O Allos Anthropos (A Different Person), a mobile kitchen in Greece, Athens which is supporting the poorest citizens there with daily warm meals.
“Face The Beat: Session 3” was compiled by Elise Din and Bernard Van Isacker and features lots of new talents, and several familiar ‘faces’, from the electro, wave, industrial, dubstep, dark folk scene who wanted to put their shoulders under the release. You’ll find well known acts such as Kant Kino, IIOIOIOII, Essence Of Mind, Empusa, and many more next to a lot of new talents which caught our attention and which often haven’t got a label contract or have just been signed recently.
The material was carefully mastered by Kenneth Fredstie (Kant Kino) for your best audio pleasure.
Here’s a bit more info on O Allos Anthropos, the charity project we will be supporting this time. The people behind O Allos Anthropos don’t just cook healthy meals for the poorest residents, they also sit together with those people in an effort to combat the shame of receiving a free cooked meal. Another purpose of this community kitchen is to distribute any left over funds to the unemployed people who help them on a daily basis. We came aware of their work when being in Greece last year and seeing the tremendous work they have been doing, we decided to help them out.
Being in the middle of the Christmas and New Year’s festivities we count on you to be generous with your donations – it’s no obligation of course, but you’ll make sure that other people will be able enjoying a decent meal with what you donate. Good to know, there will be no middleman to transfer the donations. We’ll wire it directly to O Allos Anthropos and the Side-Line team will already be donating 500 Euro directly, just to show you how much we care about this project. You can also support this project with recurrent donations if you wish to.
You can download the compilation right here.
Many thanks to all of the bands and labels that have sent material, too many to name (over 3000 this time), and congratulations to all the bands that have made our selection! United we can show that we have our heart at the right place!
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you. The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
