Copenhagen based DJ and producer Anastasia Kristensen presents Rewire & Acquire, an incredible 19-track various artists compilation including tracks from Tim Reaper, D.Tiffany, Cressida, Telefon Tel Aviv, Anastasia herself and many more.
Dropping exclusively via Bandcamp, all proceeds from the release will go to Equality Now – a global charity that works actively towards achieving legal equality for all women, with a vision of ending sexual violence, human trafficking and normalisation of harmful practices towards women. Whilst providing a much needed dose of club magic in these times, Rewire & Acquire aims to raise awareness around the existing and rising issues of gender inequality and violence in the shadow of the current pandemic.
Carefully curated by Anastasia Kristensen, the compilation comprises 19 expertly produced and evocative tracks from a selection of the electronic sonisphere’s most exciting producers. A melting pot of musicality through personalities, scenes and communities across the entire globe from London to Copenhagen, via Tbilisi, Moscow, Bangalore and Los Angeles, each track has been made with a passion, twist and depth specifically for this compilation.
London’s inimitable Tim Reaper steps up with his signature pacey, percussive, jungle, while more bass-laced goodness comes courtesy of Cressida, and Raji Rags on bleepy tech duties. There’s pacey psychedelia from D. Tiffany, mind-melting trance infused techno from B from E, swinging broken-beats from Gacha Bakradze and warm textures from Voicedrone, alongside lush house from Telefon Tel Aviv. Sophia Saze and Rayme dish up driving, hypnotic techno while Ben Pest and Francois X both deliver straight up rampant warehouse business. With more incredible tracks from S. Ruston ft. caner teker, VRIL, Neri J, Pooja B, Elad Magdasi and Marco Bailey, the compilation is rounded off with a rave-ready weapon from Anastasia Kristensen herself.
Speaking on the compilation, Anastasia says:
“‘Rewire & Acquire’ is a symbol of a creative friendship for me, with all of us united by and for this cause. I find it important to keep that type of creativity alive, especially in these highly challenging times in the world right now. I discussed the cause with the artists and everyone instantly wanted to contribute to this. I am very happy how it shaped up and what better time to release this than on my birthday.”
