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:
Transgender Law Centre - The Transgender Law Center is the largest American transgender-led civil rights organization in the United States. They were originally California’s first “fully staffed, state-wide transgender legal organization” and were initially a fiscally sponsored project of the National Center for Lesbian Rights.
Downtown Women’s Shelter - the only organization in Los Angeles focused exclusively on serving and empowering women experiencing homelessness and formerly homeless women.
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 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.
