From Belfast with Love II

19. February 21 by Jordan McCuaig

Jordan Nocturne compiles the second installment in his From Belfast With Love series, this time supporting talent from across the city, but also extending a warm invite to some friends further afield.

Although the way in which we consume music has changed and clubs remain closed - From Belfast with Love shows a city standing in solidarity; free to create and connect to those willing to listen. Across fifteen tracks, artists involved effortlessly move between ambient rich coloured worlds, acid-tinged goodness and rhythmically complex intricacies, inciting feelings of hope, wonder and private contemplation.

Arvo Party and Gibsun provide two stunning pieces of work, as our windows are cracked open and we drift beyond the clouds to worlds less-known, shining a well-deserved light on new talent across the city. Matheson returns to the compilation series with a feel-good nostalgic bubbler, while Belfast's Timmy Stewart debuts his To The Bone project- gifting us a brooding cut of carnivalesque energy.

First-time contributors Tech Support and Zillas on Acid embrace odd-ball rhythms and an acid down-pour, giving the compilation a well-rounded edge that can transcend beyond any dancefloor.

100% of compilation profits will be donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee. The charity are working with communities profoundly affected by the corona-virus pandemic, particularly refugees in war-torn countries including Syria, Yemen and South Sudan.

Your donation will help raise urgent funds to those fleeing war and living in fragile states and is deeply appreciated. A city no stranger to conflict, From Belfast With Love unites our love for art, kindness and unity at a time we need it most.

50% of From Belfast with Love wall art and tees will also go toward fundraising during the month of February.
