DAISIE | Album Info: “Sounds For The Reef” by Various

SoundsForTheReef-Various-RadioDAISIEIt’s always a good thing in DAISIE‘s opinion when the might of the few connect to support the plight of the many. “Sounds For The Reef” is a collection of various tracks donated by 21 artists to raise funds to support the legal battle to protect the Great Barrier Reef. Organised by Straightup, the Australian Marine Conservation Society and WWF-Australia the project aims to raise awareness and support ‘Fight For The Reef‘s’ legal fund to direct challenges to the Australian Government‘s approval of proposed ports and associated dredging and dumping in the Reef’s waters. It’s a beautiful collection of music as it is, featuring some of DAISIE‘s favourite playlist artists such as Hiatus Kaiyote, Myele Manzanza, Mark De Clive-Lowe + Nia Andrews as well as fantastic contributions from Fat Freddy’s Drop, The Shaolin Afronauts and Jordan Rakei to name a few! Knowing that the proceeds are going to help protect one of the great wonders of the world is an even bigger incentive to support this project.  Release date: 7th April 2014
