New York-based label Orphan. Records is releasing a charity compilation to raise money on World Mental Health Day.
Taking in tracks from Ciel, Nathan Micay, Ariel Zetina, Reckonwrong, Dust E-1 and DJ Python (under his Luis alias), amongst others, the compilation features 15 tracks in total. All proceeds from the release of the compilation, which is titled Or.VA1, will go to the New York-based Child Mind Institute, a charity geared towards helping young people with issues such as depression and anxiety.
"We chose to benefit Child Mind because we feel that the next generation of musicians deserve to be better equipped to handle the day-to-day struggles of mental health," the label said, announcing the release.
It will be available to buy from October 10th, to coincide with World Mental Health Day. You can hear a track from it, Reckonwrong's 'Mutual Counsel', below.
