GASH Collective return with a colossal second edition of their GASH TRAX compilation. The 10 track VA shines a light on Irish fringe artists with a broad spanning view on club orientated music.
Ireland’s Gash Collective proudly presents its second compilation, GASH TRAX VOL.2, out 24th April 2023. Today’s news comes with a trippy new visualiser for “LEADER” by ALYXIS.
Gash Collective are an Irish based platform founded by DJ, producer and composer ELLLL, and DJ & curator Lolz, supporting female-identifying and LGBTQ+ electronic producers and DJ’s, through carefully curated and accessible gigs, workshops, releases, and radio residencies.
GASH TRAX VOL.2 features: club-ready, perc-workouts from ALYXIS, Roo Honeychild and Sweet Philly and grooving dance floor vocal cuts from Roibī. ANIMWAL and DJ Boyfriend bring their chopped and screwed glitchy production skills while To Aperion, Oval Orbs and E The Artist debut mesmeric atmospherics with smoky sub-bass. Serial Experiments Jane gives a unique radiophonic-esque investigation.
“The spirit of Gash Collective has always been to support and spotlight minority talent; this compilation certainly echoes that sentiment. This release is especially meaningful to me, as when we founded Gash in 2016, it was near impossible to find producers willing to share their tracks. There was a general lack of confidence and a feeling from many minority artists that the music technology sphere was not a very inclusive one.
Now in 2023, we have a collection of ten tracks by some of the finest and most exciting artists across Ireland. These tracks display a diverse scene, which is growing in confidence and finding its voice. While we can always do more regarding inclusivity and visibility, it’s very encouraging to see that things are slowly beginning to change”.
