Daytimers and Stamp The Wax to release new compilation in aid of COVID relief in India

fixrunner | June 11, 2021

London collective Daytimers have teamed up with Stamp The Wax to release a compilation to aid the ongoing COVID-19 relief efforts in India.

The compilation is made up of tracks from artists of South Asian heritage, and all proceeds from the sale of the release will be distributed between several trusted charities working to help those currently in need in India. 

Among the artists who’ve contributed tracks to the release are Manara, Nikki Nair, Ayesha, Kindness, Arjun Vagale and Pooja B.

A statement attributed to Daytimers said: “In the midst of the grave ongoing situation in India, the ability to bring together artists from the diaspora and the continent to contribute to the relief effort has been one of the many affirming moments for the collective.

“Since the formation of the collective in the first lockdown, these moments, like our first compilation, the 24 Hour Livestream in Solidarity with Our Farmers & our first live event fundraiser, have come together purely from the communal energy and support from our members, those that paved the way for us & this new generation of talented creatives. A spirit of mutual respect, love, and support has been present from all involved, from those starting out on their creative journey, to the trailblazers like Manara, Jyoty, Raveena, Joy Crookes, Ahadadream, Anu, Amad.Studio, Raji Rags, Nabihah Iqbal & so many more we have had the honour of working with.”  

Profits will be distributed evenly, through Mumbai-based music and culture agency Wavlngth’s fundraiser, to Hemkunt Foundation (an NGO helping hospitals save lives by donating oxygen cylinders and setting up free oxygen drive-throughs and oxygen centres), Goonj (an organisation distributing rations and medical kits), and Citta India (a mental health NGO providing free counselling for COVID patients).

The full compilation will be released on June 18th. You can pre-order the release, and preview three tracks from it, via Bandcamp.

The release follows on from a charity event that Daytimers organised at London’s Colour Factory last month.

A number of artists of Indian heritage also joined together recently to release ‘We Are The People’, another compilation raising money for India’s COVID-19 relief effort.

The release features tracks by Manara, Ayesha, Nikki Nair and more
