about

Hi there, I'm Brian. I maintain a couple record labels (Milieu Music and Recycled Plastics) among other things, and recently my friend Erik (Melotone @ Recycled Plastics) made me aware that his Australian friend Meg was in a bad way. I won't get into the specific details that he did, but between a lost job, Crohn's disease, multiple surgeries and debts, it was clear that Meg needed some help. I don't personally know Meg, never met her. Still, it felt important to put something together to do some good for a stranger in need.

So, two weeks, a lot of texting/emailing and file transferring later, here we are. I've managed to assemble 41 tracks from a wide range of talented artists - many of them from my own circle of friends/labels, and some I'd never heard of until now. A few of us contributed multiple tracks (Jodey Kendrick, Melotone, Nntblst and Orson Throb each gave two, and both Kore & myself each gave five under three different aliases) but everyone who pitched in really sent in some remarkable music. I've worked very hard to sequence all 41 cuts into a cohesive and considered flow, starting with braindance and acid music, then moving into a little jungle, deeper techno and dub, moving further still through a patch of acoustic instrumentation, then textural and melodic ambient works and finally closing with a 59 minute drone piece. The whole compilation is ten minutes shy of five hours long, and all 41 files (when rendered as Redbook standard 16/44100 wavfiles add up to 3066.737984 megabytes. For the compilation's title, I rounded up.

I want to take a moment to thank everyone involved here for their selflessness and effort, and for moving so quickly on something like this. I've set up this Bandcamp page to be connected to Meg's PayPal account, so 100% of the money made (outside of Bandcamp's revenue share, and PayPal fees) will end up in her hands. Once this is out, I'll also be handing the keys for the entire BC account over to Meg herself, so hopefully she can use it as an established platform to release more of her own work. For anyone wanting to know more about Meg's story, you can check the Facebook fundraiser page Melotone created, here: www.facebook.com/donate/1540298789327276/10158721537620654/

So please take all of us up on some good music for a good cause, and let's all help Meg get back on her feet in the process. We've priced this massive collection at a modest 8.88 Australian dollars, but if you think it's worth more than that (we certainly do), know that every little bit goes a long way where charity is concerned.

Thanks for your ears and your consideration,
Brian

P.S. If you find new favorites, everyone has a URL in their track's details!
