Plus Steve Roach, Obay Alsharani, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Skee Mask, Helena Hauff, Nailah Hunter, and Julianna Barwick.
Coldcut are releasing a new compilation of ambient music, called @0, via Ahead Of Our Time this November.
@0 features music from Ryuichi Sakamoto, Julianna Barwick, Obay Alsharani, Nailah Hunter, Steve Roach, Mira Calix, Skee Mask, Sigur Rós, Laraaji, and more.
“@0 refers to that liminal state experienced many times where my mental and emotional stability was not solid and it felt like teetering on a zero axis about to fall into depression, or more rarely, mania,” shares Coldcut’s Matt Black.
“I found that ambient music, by making no psychic demands, often opened some space and with its soft fascination, subtly raised the energy, helping to avoid that downward spiral and navigate slowly up and out.”
Ninja Tune will be donating its share of profits to the following charities: CALM, Mind, and Black Minds Matter.
