The west coast label is doing their part

As the news cycle insists the devastation left behind by Hurricanes Maria and Irma in the Carribean is a distant memory, the harsh reality is that nearly 80% of Puerto Rico is still without power and it could be up to six months until electricity is restored.

With that in mind, Soulection is stepping up to the plate like no label has. Late last week, the label released the UNITE compilation, a 10-track sequence of new cuts from Soulection's finest selectors, including Sango, Monte Booker, Ta-Ku, ESTA, and more producers from the roster. 100% of proceeds will be donated to Puerto Rico & Caribbean Hurricane Relief Fund and Mexico Earthquake Relief Fund via Global Giving, an organization that has already raised $3.5 million for the island and is working diligently to restore services in PR and Mexico devastated by this hurricane season by funneling donations into organizations that are working tirelessly to bring the lights back on in PR.
