Before all that makes a storm in your internet teacup, as an introduction to Shall Not Fade and a pre-cursor to the first full 12" expected on November 15th, the new-born label have released a compilation-slash-artist sampler to tantilize a few tastebuds and set the wheels in motion. Playing host to future label-mates Mall Grab, Space Afrika, Steph, Mavora and more, the sampler is nothing short of spectacular (a word I don't often utlise). We selected Steph's addition especially for a premiere, mainly because Alone makes me wanna shave my lower right arm and get an eagle tattooed on it, just so I could stick it out of the window when I'm night-driving in my (imaginary) Escalade. On hearing you can almost imagine the thrill of a dual carriageway, Newport Pagnell services, that open road and sweet solidarity. Chug, chug, chug.
Bonus pointer: all money generated from the sampler will be donated to Red Cross in aid of the Syrian Migrant Crisis. The sampler features eight producers from various countries around the world; including Australia, Ukraine, Germany, Poland, Russia & the UK.
Shall Not Fade's artist sampler is available now on Bandcamp (buy).
