Optimo Music launches new label Against Fascism Trax
Helmed by DJs Twitch and Jonnie Wilkes, the Optimo powerhouse has revealed its newest challenge.
Against Fascism Trax – or AF Trax – is a protest in opposition to the more and more populist local weather internationally. Acting as a cultural platform to oppose the rise of the far and alt-right actions, AF Trax goals to advertise artists who're making music that brazenly questions and criticises these actions.
With all earnings going to Hope Not Hate, a charity devoted to campaigning in opposition to “politics of hate,” their intent is to “provoke dialog and financially assist the opposition to fascist considering.”
Launching in January 2019 with 'Rat Full Of Coins’ by Logtoad and the EP 'Zerma Thursta’ by Al Jerry, the label guarantees one other launch from Joe Goddard that includes Kool Keith and Fantastic Twins with a date to be confirmed. In whole, 10 EPs will get a bodily and digital launch in 2019, distributed by Kompakt.
