An eclectic bunch of musicians have donated tracks to help raise money for the charity’s appeal.
Ten exclusive vinyl releases – pressed and produced at The Vinyl Factory, who’re collaborating with Independent Label Market for the project – will be on sale at Old Spitalfields Market on 13 July, with all proceeds going to Oxfam’s Syria Crisis Appeal.
Among the artists contributing tracks is the lesser-spotted Swamp81 boss Loefah, who breaks his long silence to offer up ‘Western (Did A Skank)’. Listen to a radio rip below – the single features vocals from Trigga.
Meanwhile, Four Tet lends a remix to the Beth Orton track ‘Carmella’, while Factory Floor have remixed ‘The Doors Of Then’ by former Charlatans lad Tim Burgess. The most high-profile offering, however, comes from Fresh Touch, a supergroup comprising Blur’s Damon Albarn, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos and Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner. Their single is called ‘Latest Style’ and comes out on Angular Records.
Just 50 copies of each track will be sold on the day, priced £10 each and limited to one per customer. Each 12″ will be hand numbered with an etching on the B-side. Independent Label Market will also host an eBay auction for a complete set.
