In an interesting project JD Twitch has revealed the second installement of his new Autonomous Africa series in which the producer alongside fellow artists release music to highlight problems caused in African states by outside interference  and donates all proceeds of record sales to charities on the Rainbow Continent.

Last years inaugural EP featured original works from JD himself alongside fellow Glaswegian Auntie Flo and donated its proceeds to Médecins Sans Frontières. This years incarnation sees the Scots team up again with Leeds producer Midand also joining the fray as the trio deliver four afro-beat inspired tracks which will be giving away its profits to the Mtandika Mission in Tanzania, a small charity run by Midland’s parents.  With electronic music slightly losing its way under the gloss and glamour of it’s current success in the mainstream it’s refreshing to see a group of artists using music for more than just moving bodies on the dancefloor.

Set to drop in late July you can hear a sample of all four tracks below.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
