Slum / Let's Meet One Of These Days (Original) 2011 Release
would like to express my deepest and most sincere sympathy to the victims and their families of the earthquake and tsunami.
The circumstances of March 11th, 2011, suddenly changed our lives. Following the incident, I have been receiving messages from friends, acquaintances, record labels, artists, and many people from across the world.
The severe damage caused by the disaster in the northeastern region of Japan, where I live in Tokyo is nothing in comparison, but the footages and news released by the media across the globe must have been truly shocking for people to see.
I thought to myself, “What can we do as people in the dance music entertainment industry?”
I started to think, why not use the online shop, internet downloading system, and the network we already have with the artists to collect donations for the cause.
Some might say or think, “There’s no need to call it a charity when you can just simply make a donation!”, and they may be absolutely right.
But, one of the reasons for organizing this charity compilation project was, “to confirm our unity and bond as minorities in this scene.”
Rather than an individual simply resolving an issue with money, I felt that by “artists having the same feelings in common” gave meaning to salvation and hope.
I would like to take this time to express my appreciation to all of the artists, who willingly offered their music and supported the cause.
Also, please take this opportunity to listen to the music from Japanese artists.
I hope that they will play an active part in the music scene, in Japan’s recovery, in the driving force for hope, and making listeners all over the world happy through their music.
