A new compilation series from Air Texture and Kompakt, called place, is being launched to highlights the music scenes in different countries and support various charities.

All proceeds from the compilations will go towards local groups and charities working on human rights issues. The first two compilations will focus on the electronic music scenes in Georgia and Colombia.

place: georgia was put together alongside Tbilisi-based producers Giorgi Iakobidze and Sandro Mezurnishvili, and all proceeds will go to Georgian organisation Human Rights Education and Monitoring Centre (EMC).

place: colombia was made with the help of Medellín-based DJ Juliana Cuervo, who is a resident DJ at the city's Mansion Club. All proceeds from its release will go to Mutante, which is a not-for-profit organisation aiming to further conversations about local social issues.

Both compilations will be released on June 1st and can be pre-ordered here where you can also find their respective tracklists.
