Apranik Records has announced a new compilation focused on electronic music made by Iranian women. 'Intended Consequence' will be released on 4th August and you can listen to Rojin Sharafi's 'DBKKK' below.
A broad range of production talent has contributed to the album, representing a variety of genres. These include Abji_hypersun's junglist-leaning 'Resist the God Trick', AZADI.mp3's glitchy club rhythms, and the ambient experimental tones of Farzané's. Label bosses AIDA and Nesa Azadikhah (pictured above) both feature too. You can see the full tracklist below.
The 10-track collection follows January's 'Woman, Life, Freedom' compilation, released in support of protests that ignited in Tehran last September after the death of Mahsa Zhina Amini. The 22-year-old died in hospital after being taken into police custody for allegedly not wearing her hijab correctly. This latest compilation again looks to address the tragedy, and the struggle for women's rights in Iran.
"Intended Consequence is a collection of music dedicated to the choice and continuum of Iranian women’s fight for freedom in the day-to-day," the release's accompanying text reads. As with the previous compilation, proceeds from 'Intended Consequence' will be donated to charities that help women and marginalised groups in Iran.
Last month, DJ Mag published a feature exploring Iranian electronic musicians around the world, spotlighting a number of prominent artists, including AIDA, Azadikhah and others. AIDA recorded a special mix to accompany the feature, which features several tracks from 'Intended Consequence'. Listen to it below.
