The Chemical Brothers, Jamie Jones, Pete Tong, Groove Armada, DJ Harvey, Maya Jane Coles and many more join forces to raise money for NHS Charities Together with the CARE4LIFE compilation.
“This is a really lovely way to help raise much needed funds for support now and during the recovery from COVID-19. The funds will help support NHS staff, volunteers and patients affected by the pandemic. We hope you can support this brilliant project and thanks to everyone that already has.” (Ellie Orton, Chief Executive, NHS Charities Together)
An unprecedented array of electronic music’s finest artists have come together to create the 45 track compilation of exclusive music, donated 100% for free with all proceeds going to official fundraising partner, NHS Charities Together (registered charity no.1186569). NHS Charities Together is currently working to provide, in their next round of funding, additional support they feel is most urgently needed by NHS staff, volunteers and patients in their area, with a particular focus on support for people who are disproportionately affected by the Covid crisis, such as patients and staff from the BAME communities and other groups including those living with disabilities.
“Through the challenges of the Covid19 pandemic we have all developed a new understanding and awareness about the role our frontline health professionals undertake, and as a nation we are all united in our appreciation of the incredible work they have delivered in the face of much adversity and pressure in the last couple of months. In the continued spirit of people coming together in this time of need, the CARE4LIFE project hopes that this amazing collection of music can contribute to easing that pressure by giving some much needed support to these frontline workers from our fellow artists and friends in the music industry and its surrounding community.” (CARE4LIFE, May 2020)
CARE4LIFE features new, exclusive and unheard music from the vaults, hard drives and archives of UK artists as diverse as Jamie Jones, Nathan Fake, Groove Armada, Joe Goddard and Pete Tong alongside tracks from Radio Slave, DJ Harvey, Matthew Herbert, Crooked Man, Mason Maynard, Daniel Avery and many more. CARE4LIFE is a truly varied and diverse listening experience that not only mirrors the collective talents involved, it wholeheartedly celebrates the openness and love that the NHS has shown us all at some stage throughout most of our lives here in Britain and beyond.
“The light of love and positivity has been brighter than ever during this time. It would be preferable to live in a world where institutions like the NHS aren’t considered charities kept afloat by the caring classes but, today, it’s nice to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with everyone doing what they can. The sharing of music feels more powerful now than ever.” [info sheet from distr.]
