Let’s Go Somewhere Quiet: album out 20 August
The Let’s Go Somewhere Quiet album is here. Out on Monday, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you like go ahead electronic wizardry from Alex Zelenka, the breathless cinematic thrill ride of QtheSuit, the jazz-flecked positivity of Sam Levine, the gentle acoustic laments of Stylusboy and Coolio Franco or the delicate Detroit techno of Larry Jefferson. Available on itunes and beatport.
All profits go to brain tumour charities in the UK and USA. And if you want a reminder of why the causes supported by this compilation are important, read Ben’s story here. As his mother says “our lives changed for ever” and that’s something that every parent of a child with a brain tumour feels. Nothing, but nothing, is ever the same again. Your child’s life and your life is utterly transformed.

Teabags, tears and tunes to heal the soul. A new 14 track compilation of house, downtempo and indie, with all profits going to charity.
How many times do we hear that music can heal the broken-hearted? This new compilation from Acid Ted blog and THEE PAUSE takes you on a rollercoaster – the pain of hurt through to the blistering joy of being alive via a compilation of raucous dance, delicate house, acoustic indie and downtempo chill.
Crystal Castles producer Alex Zelenka provides electronic wizardry in the pumping Gemini and Coventry’s QTheSuit offers twisted spybreaks in the cinematic thrill ride that is v6. The mysterious Larry Jefferson gives classic Detroit house sounds with Welcome.
The other quieter side is shown by the heart-breaking poignancy of Stylusboy’s acoustic A Song for Noah and Coolio Franco’s Song for David. Sam Levine gives the joy of being alive in the jumping positivity of Rootless.
This album has a purpose beyond the joy of the music. Acid Ted blog, exec producer, is known not only for his music blog but also for his frank and raw diary of watching his beautiful boy fight against a brain tumour. And lose.
This is what has inspired him to bring together for the first time these artists who have all offered their services for free. All the profits will go to brain tumour charities in the USA and UK: http://www.thebraintumourcharity.org/ - http://www.cbtf.org/
Life is what this album is about. The keeping going. The being able to see the dark irony in the mundane. Realizing life can change forever in the time it takes to go out and get some teabags. And most of all, it’s about the music which reminds us what life is all about.
Available worldwide this August 20th via iTunes, Amazon, Juno, Beatport and all other fine online retailers.
