Lately ive been thinking of ways to get senzu to be more than just a bandcamp or just a few producers who provide good music. Since the begining we had have large intentions with this collective, farther than our music, we wanted to interact on a global scale. lately, learning alot about international problems more and more through social media, i felt it was time to make a change. a real change.
our generation (born between 1985 – 2000) is the FIRST generation to be raised (at home & at school) around computers, we have been fully integrated with the cultural powerhouse called the internet. Because of this our generation also has been absurdly succesful, every year more and more, the internet, social media, and global interaction is playing a larger part in Pop culture around the world. Also Because of this we See and hear more TRUTH and can easily see past LIES put forth by various parties political, religious or otherwise. We can do our own research and make our own conclusions as to the integrity of news outlets, we can challenge the opinion of the press.
We can do more than Reblog a post about some grave injustice, how often do you see a ad or a post on facebook or twitter or tumblr, on something going on politically corrupt or just socially wrong (in your home country or globally). I believe in my heart, this generation wants to help, this generation wants to contribute, they know whats right and wrong.
THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THAT THIS GENERATION DOES NOT BELIEVE THEIR VOICE WILL BE HEARD, THEY DO NOT BELIEVE THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS WILL HELP IN THE END.
our actions are not futile if we are educated as to where the help is needed, it is true that some probles stem from greater social, national, religious or political issues. that is NOT to say that any contribution, big or small, does not make a difference. EVERY contribution to those in need is infinitely more than nothing…
that being said, we are putting together a series of compilations in collaboration with various collectives & labels throughout the next couple of months.
Each release will feature 10 -15 artists, and all the proceeds will go directly to a international cause
Each month will feature a particular global issue, some of these issues will be covered multiple times, depending on the neccesity for support at the given time.
these will be released on dates relevant to those causes. We want these countries, these families, to not think they are alone in their fight. Our homage to particular events relevant to their struggles is both a educational device for our listeners and a homage to the people of the given country or people.
