Mall Grab, Kettama, X CLUB and more jump on new VSN WORLD compilation
Here at Purple Sneakers, we love a reason to party with purpose. We love releases that come with good deeds, and we love when communities give back. Galway promoter and label VSN WORLD has done exactly that with the upcoming release of a new compilation, and they’ve tapped a cross-continental crew to contribute to their charitable efforts.
Aptly titled VSN WORLD 4 A BETTER WORLD, the label has curated a whopping 32 tracks for a release which will see 100% of its proceeds donated to Inner City Helping Homeless, a Dublin-based charity which is on the ground dealing with a homelessness crisis in the Irish capital. Mall Grab, KETTAMA, one of our Artists to Watch for 2021 X CLUB, Nora Drum, StacEmp, SertOne, Mutant Joe and many, many more all appear on the formidable tracklist, delivering a multitude of genres and sounds.
VSN WORLD said on their Bandcamp of the release, “After what’s been the hardest year in existence for many people on earth, especially those involved in music and live performance, it’s hard to imagine the reality of being homeless at any time, let alone right now.”
“100% of the proceeds from our debut VSN compilation go to Dublin charity, Inner City Helping Homeless (ICHH), who do mammoth amounts of work on the streets of the Irish capital, where there is an ongoing epidemic of homelessness.”
“With tracks coming from far and wide across almost every genre we could think of, we take a club night that came from very humble Saturday nights in Room 2 of a Galway nightclub to worldwide ears thanks to the generous productions of some of the biggest and most talented names that you may know every detail about or nothing at all; each track paints a different and unique aspect of the world of VSN.”
The entire compilation drops Friday, March 5th, which coincides with Bandcamp Friday meaning 100% of the proceeds go to the artist, therefore in this case to the charity. Two singles are already out as a taster, so check it out HERE or below.
