'Momentum – Pakistan Flood Relief Compilation' Features Rudoh, Kohra, Gebrüder Teichmann & More
11 November 2022
In 2022, Pakistan has borne the brunt of climate change and geopolitics with the worst floodings in the country's history, which have claimed thousands of lives, billions of dollars in property damage and a widespread adverse effect on livelihoods. For most of the summer, almost a third of the country has been under water with about 80% of its agricultural crops destroyed.
Addressing it, the country's independent music label Cape Monze Records has just released a fundraising compilation entitled 'Momentum – Pakistan Flood Relief Compilation' which features 19 tracks from artists around the world including the UK, Denmark, Colombia, India, Germany, France, Maldives, UAE, Belgium and Pakistan itself.
Donating all of its proceeds to organisations providing medical care, shelter and rebuilding efforts to flood-hit areas of Pakistan like Legal Aid Society, Edhi Foundation, Childlife Foundation and Mama Baby Fund, 'Momentum' leans towards heavy club-friendly strands of electronic music. Alongside the first standout moment of organic rhythms meeting electronic timbres on Autonomotor's 'idhiKeeli', the album offers the choicest techno run on the adjacent tracks by Measure Divide, TMPST and Gebrüder Teichmann before a very localised take on the genre on Kukido's 'Bhai'. Kohra and SHFT break into minimal grounds with 'Soul Surfer' which is aptly followed by the similarly-styled 'Trace' by Adlas. While most of the album remains inclined towards the dancefloor or its associated meditative listening, the one exception comes from the swaggering beats of 'Clozapine' by Nirvana Principle.
