Top Billin' Releases Compilation For Red Cross Japan
- Words: Stefan Nickum
No matter where you look, Japan and its national crisis is ever-present. The same goes for the opportunities to donate to what is, and will continue to be, a colossal recovery. Among the many music-related fundraising campaigns, this effort from Finland's Top Billin' imprint has intrigued us most, partly for the serendipity of its back-story. Top Billin' had been working on a compilation exclusively for the Japanese market, with some Tokyo-based friends including producer Eccy. The comp was scheduled for an April release date, a time-frame that was turned on its head earlier this month by the 9.0 earthquake. As a result, Top Billin' has thoughtfully decided to go ahead with the release, only now they will be donating 100% of the proceeds to Red Cross Japan. Make sure to check out Top Billin's Bandcamp player below, and consider a donation that fits best, both for your wallet and your peace of mind.
