New electronic music compilation to help Hurricane Harvey victims in Texas

Laurel Halo and Chino Amobi contribute tracks to Praxis Houston

Club producers Malcriado and Englesia have put together a new compilation, Praxis Houston, to aid victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas and contribute to the rebuilding effort there. Artists on the release are Laurel Halo, Kareem Lotfy, Endgame, Scraaatch, Englesia, Torus, Kamixlo, Santa Muerte, Mya Gomez, Qualiatik, Dasychira, Chino Amobi, Bob Traxx, & Malcriado.

Englesia says, "100% of raised funds will be donated to the Greater Houston Autonomous Relief, a grassroots coalition of groups from the Greater Houston community coming together to offer direct support to those most impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Their mission statement is to help each other instead of relying on corporations or the state. The coalition consists of Solidarity Houston, SHAPE Center, Campaign Nonviolence Houston, Houston Peace & Justice Center, Houston Anarchist Black Cross, Black Lives Matter Houston Chapter, Resilient Nacogdoches, World On My Shoulders, & Black Women's Defense League. The funds will go through World On My Shoulders, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit, and then will be allocated by on-the-ground need between organisations."

More information can be found on the campaign's gofundme site.
