A collaboration with Beating Heart Project about South Africa, which featured "a whole host of international talent (..) sampling and remixing field recordings made by Hugh Tracey in 1950s South Africa with kind permission from the International Library of African Music."
We picked up 4 tracks which we totally loved, had them remastered digitally and for vinyl by Frank Merritt at the Carvery.
First time on vinyl.
The artwork is done by Peter McDonald, and sleeve design by Gina.
Proceeds support gender equality in South Africa through the Women’s Legal Centre, as well as helping to teach music production skills to kids at Grahamstown’s Access Music Project.
