DJs for Climate Action announce EARTH NIGHT 2021. It’s a full day livestream on Sunday April 25th featuring artists broadcasting from around the world, plus some thought provoking panel discussions. The event will also celebrate ‘Climate Soundtrack: Future Visions’, a unique compilation of music from producers worldwide, inspired from sounds recorded by Greenpeace.
Launched in 2018, EARTH NIGHT is an annual celebration to harness the energy of the global dance scene to power solutions and generate climate action. Check it out on Youtube. With the pandemic still keep most live shows and clubs closed, DJs4CA are again in 2021, presenting this event online. This year the collective are introducing panel discussions, connecting stories of arts, culture and climate. Participants include members of organizations like Music Declares Emergency, Fridays For Future and Greenpeace, and artists like Fakear, Ninda Felina and Simon Meija of Bomba Estereo.
Music will still be at the center of EARTH NIGHT, with a massive back to back DJ set linking artists far and wide. Each participant will play a single track, and then pass the aux cord across the planet to the next selector. This year’s B2B will highlight many of the artists featured on DJs4CA’s upcoming music compilation ‘Climate Soundtrack: Future Visions’is currently crowdfunding to press a record using a new process friendlier to the planet.
EARTH NIGHT 2021 will stream live on Sunday April 25th from 8am - 6pm EST / 2pm - 12am CET on the Greenpeace International YouTube channel, and on Earthnight.org and on twitch. Climate Soundtrack: Future Visions’ compilation crowdfunding will launch April 19th on Kickstarter and will be released across all platforms on May 21st. In late 2020 DJs4CA engaged their community to create original music using a free sonic toolkit of sounds recorded across the globe.
Over 300 tracks of all styles came in including contributions by Acid Pauli, Fakear, Mark Farina and so many up and coming producers. Nicola Cruz, BLOND:ISH, Cosmo Baker and Matt Black of Coldcut are the judges helping choose which tracks will be pressed onto a truly unique, green double record.
The record will be pressed by the Dutch company GreenVinyl Records, who are pioneering a new injection molding production process which reduces CO2 emissions by 95%. The technique is also free from toxic PVC
