💿 = 🌲 Each Copy Sold is Planting a Tree.
Digital edition, without the Coldcut and Hexstatic tack: "Timber (Coldcut Plant a Treemix)".
To celebrate its 20th anniversary, SolarSoundSystem, the pioneer of the sound-systems powered only by renewable energies and founder of Radio3S, "the first 100% solar powered webradio", is proud to release "Solar Tracks # 01", a compilation gathering 8 artists from its worldwide network.
As climate change and ecological crises intensify, all of the SolarSoundSystem branches are joining forces more than ever to make culture a mouthpiece for environmental causes. Over the years, our worldwide organization, that has been minimizing carbon impacts in parties and music festivals, has been fortunate enough to be supported by renowned international artists and wishes to honor them, show gratitude, and freeze this support forever!
"Solar Tracks 01" carries 6 tracks (5 in the digital version) of DJs and producers that have been playing on the SolarSoundSystems these past 20 years from the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland, Basque Country, Mexico, Israel and Hong Kong. With 4 exclusive productions, this first compilation includes original tracks and remixes by Coldcut, Jay Ka, Ovhal44, Gregorythme, Naduve, Tai Rona, Harrison and Francois Del Mundo.
Furthermore, in tribute to the remix of "Timber" by ColdCut, present only on the vinyl version, and which was the first to denounce deforestation back in 1997, a tree will be planted in the Amazon for each copy sold through a partnership with One Tree Planted an environmental NGO that is rebuilding forests and restoring land.
