Mix number 11 and week 42. This week I've put together a mix of experimental music made up entirely* from a handful of releases that have been compiled to raise funds to support the citizens of Ukraine, or from labels / artists that are donating their income in a similar way. I've leaned heavily on a couple of releases in particular, this wasn't intentional, I simply put all the tracks into a folder, plugged my Traktor controller in and mixed live without any plan or knowing exactly which release the tracks came from until I stopped. 

 * I say entirely, but the first track is a monologue from American astronomer Carl Sagan referencing the 'Pale Blue Dot'. The photograph used on this weeks cover is NASA's "Pale Blue Dot", a photograph of Earth, taken by Voyager 1 in 1990 from a distance of around 6 Billion km away.


You may be aware that I've been trying to put together a mix or selection each week this year in an effort to raise a modest amount to aid the excellent work done by the Sue Ryder charity. Aside from hoping people may wish to contribute something to Sue Ryder via my Justgiving page I have always made an effort to provide appropriate links and encourage anyone who should listen to the things I post to purchase the music to support the artists and labels. This week I'm encouraging you, if you can, to purchase the music to support various organisations who are supporting the citizens of Ukraine currently. The financial support from the music on this release is going to the following - Red Cross Ukraine / DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee), UNICEF (Children of Ukraine), People In Need - SOS Ukraine, Sunflower Of Peace and local on the ground support in Dnipro via Ukrainian musician Igor Yalivec.
