Birthed from a radio show and event series with iconic Los Angeles radio station DUBLAB, SOS MUSIC’s goal is to provide a platform for forward-thinking electronic music, with a keen emphasis on womxn talent from around the world.
In conjunction with legendary Berlin-based !K7, the label’s debut release, SOS MUSIC Vol. 1 is a 14-track eclectic compilation showcasing dance music from some of the best producers working at the moment, including rRoxymore, Violet, Nightwave, Lara Sarkissian, Umfang, LCY & Minimal Violence – lovingly curated to uplift and celebrate the global electronic community in a time of deep uncertainty in the music industry.
SOS MUSIC Vol. 1 is international to its core, drawing on influences from the artists’ respective backgrounds including the UK, US, Serbia, Spain, Japan, Slovenia, Portugal, Germany & Canada. A limited run of vinyl will also be made available. Proceeds from the compilation will be donated to three womxn focused charities:
1. Transgender Law Centre – The Transgender Law Centre is the largest American transgender-led civil rights organisation in the United States. They were originally California’s first “fully staffed, state-wide transgender legal organisation” and were initially a fiscally sponsored project of the National Centre for Lesbian Rights.
2. Downtown Women’s Shelter – The only organisation in Los Angeles focused exclusively on serving and empowering women experiencing homelessness and formerly homeless women.
3. Women’s Refugee Commission – WRC’s mission is to improve the lives and protect the rights of women, children, and youth displaced by conflict and crisis.
The compilation will also be mixed in Dolby Atmos, one of the first leftfield electronic releases to support the format. Dolby Atmos provides an immersive music experience, unveiling new levels of detail and depth to the songs. It expands the creative palette for artists, allowing songs to live and breathe in a multi-dimensional space to fully immerse you in the listening experience.
