Easy Does It return with their second charity compilation In Support Of PAFRAS
Following the success of their first compilation ‘Care Package’, raising money for the NHS with music from a host of Leeds artists, DIY club night and collective Easy Does It have returned with another serving of electronic music brimming with Leeds talent. It will be released on Friday 6th November and all profits will be donated to PAFRAS (Positive Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers), a community-based charity that supports destitute asylum seekers in Leeds.
Round two features a track list more concise than the first, with 9 tunes consisting of mostly familiar names who also contributed to the album earlier this year, along with a few new faces to the Easy Does It family. Returnees include T.C. Young, who gained further exposure for Care Package after being featured on BBC Radio 6, along with Permahigh Records founder Mike Drones and up-and-comer Ren who’s seen features on mixes by Objekt and Teki Latex. Once again, expect a genre-spanning medley of top-notch electronic music production.
After a positive reception and fundraising effort with Care Package, and with no possibility of live events resuming on the horizon, Easy Does It founders felt a second compilation was a positive way to contribute to another important cause and keep active in the increasingly threatened Leeds DIY music scene. PAFRAS provide mental health support, casework and food parcels for asylum-seekers in Leeds, who have launched an urgent appeal for donations under increasing need due to Covid restrictions.
