As the world's attention draws to the horrific tragedy that has befallen the people of Haiti, we have all thought of things we could do to help. Many are gathering clothing and food, while others reach into their pockets to see what they have to give. The terrifying pictures and video we have all seen are sobering and surreal, and help us all return to the very stark reality that we are all in this together, no matter where we are in this world
On Friday, January 15, 2010, a calling was put out to the Friends and Family of the Andromeda Recordings Group to see what we could possibly to help these people. The concept, which began with Di pledging to donate all of the proceeds of her forthcoming remix as Aeriah called "Let Me In" to the Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund, was to be an album of around 8 tracks to hopefully further maximize the chances to help. 48 hours later, "In The Light We See" was a reality as one by one, more and more artists came in with tracks for the effort. 8 tracks and a prayer quickly grew to 18 tracks and a power, with music from a number of genres from trance to progressive, from industrial to acid, to house and back again, further fueling the passion behind the cause. In one weekend, these artists from 10 countries around the world brought the power of what they do best in an amazing showing of brotherhood and unity with one collective heart.
Some of the tracks you will hear were projects that were to be from future releases, while others were conceived and recorded during that weekend. Still more are remixes from past and future releases. Some of the names you see involved are long standing Family members of Andromeda and Elliptical Recordings while others may have never released on these labels. There are even debut efforts from new up and coming artists, in the Andromeda tradition. The end result is simply amazing and unbelievable, with something for literally every electronic music lover contained within. All having come together in 48 hours from conception to distribution.
100% of all proceeds generated by these tracks, whether individually or collectively purchased, will go directly to the Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund. This will not change, even after the news stories have stopped and the pictures cease to haunt us on a daily basis. The tragedy and continuing need will not end any time soon.
It is our sincere hope that this gathering of incredibly talented international artists can help everyone to see that we are all indeed one, because as the night fades, "In The Light We See"..... Enjoy and thank you for your hopeful support in this cause.
Sincerely, With Gratitude And Honor,
The Andromeda Recordings Group
