London-based label Botchit & Scarper are all set to release ‘Push Play’, a double CD compilation album to raise money for the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust (ACLT). To help promote this fantastic cause, we’ve teamed up with the pioneering imprint to offer you a free track from the album, produced by none other than jungle veteran T.Power.
‘Push Play’ is inspired by the tragic passing of Sonia Akow, a DJ, label A&R, PR associate and one half of SOTO – the breakbeat duo she formed with Toby Edwards (pictured below) – who was immersed in the scene until she died in July last year. When Sonia was diagnosed with leukaemia in November 2012, a plea was put out for a bone marrow donor. A benefit gig was held in March 2013, raising nearly £15,000 for various leukaemia charities, but sadly Sonia lost her fight for life only a few months later.Named after Sonia’s PR company Push Promotions, ‘Push Play’ brings together 25 tracks from a host of Botchit & Scarper artists, including the Ragga Twins, Deekline, the Freestylers, Atomic Hooligan, T.Power, Pyramid & Jay Cunning, Ben & Lex, the Moody Boyz, Rennie Pilgrem and Lawgiverz. All proceeds from the compilation will go to the ACLT, making this a fantastic opportunity to buy some great music and help out those in need at the same time!
‘Push Play’ is out August 25th and you can pre-order the album here. In the meantime, you can get your hands on T.Power’s slice of soulful jungle ‘Blow Out (Part 4)’, which features the vocal talents of singer Elizabeth Troy and Stamina MC, right here at DT for absolutely free! Download your copy from the link below, but be quick as this offer will only be available until the album’s release.
