Just in case you hadn’t heard, we recently collaborated with two other labels we really respect on a 3×12″ vinyl release titled the ‘Elysian Boundary’. The idea for the release was initially proposed by Simon Hesford (7th Storey Projects) as a way of celebrating the life of his mother Elaine who passed away in May 2017. With all the proceeds set to benefit charity we were on board straight away (as were the Scientific Wax stable). At the time of writing (after a great response from the D&B / Jungle community) 2 separate donations of £1788 have been made to Macmillan Cancer Support and Great Ormond Street Hospital, London. Even at this late stage there are still a few copies of the vinyl available if you want to support —> http://seventhstoreyprojects.com/various-elysian-boundary-7thsubsci001- scientific-wax-subtle-audio-7th-storey-projects-3×12-limited-vinyl/
Here’s the official 7th Storey Projects press release (audio clips via Soundcloud below too) …
“7th Storey Projects, Subtle Audio and Scientific Wax join forces to proudly present ‘Elysian Boundary’, a 3-disc, vinyl-only journey through drum & bass and jungle. Featuring 6 epic tracks from some of the scene’s best-loved and most talented artists, including Equinox, Nebula, Code, Mecca, Drum Cypha & Mantra and Fushara.
This very special release was inspired by the death of my mother last year, and as such, all profits from this release will be donated to Cancer Support and Children’s charities whom she supported during her life – so your support will not only be hugely appreciated by the artists and labels, but will also help raise money for some very worthy causes. All tracks have been mastered and cut by Beau Thomas at Ten Eight Seven Mastering, pressed at Optimal:Media in Germany and sleeved with art by the one and only Tim Reaper.
Although the release is being spearheaded by 7th Storey Projects – it simply could not have been possible without the enthusiasm of the artists and the participation of the Subtle Audio and Scientific Wax labels. A host of industry personnel contributed their time and resources to help in the complicated task of bringing this release to fruition. Words can barely express how grateful we are to everyone who has been involved.
To quote Code @ Subtle Audio: “A Junglist celebrates, grieves and remembers through amen, so we said it in the way we know best”.
Many thanks Simon, 7th Storey Projects, January 2018.”
