In a statement, Mütesna Records wrote: “A call from Turkey and the world to all music enthusiasts!
“On February 6, 2023 Turkey and Syria were struck by two massive earthquakes (7,7 – 7,6 on the Richter Scale) in one day,” it continued.
“Since then a lot of local and global efforts have been put together to gather and transfer urgent help to the area, however these efforts are unfortunately inadequate in the face of the size of this catastrophic event.
“In a bid to help our country and its neighbours, Mütesna Records (TR) have decided to put together a relief compilation in collaboration with Ransom Note on their Dance Music From Planet Earth compilation label.
“Music brings us all together, regardless of our geographic location. We hope that everyone falling under this roof believes in sharing beautiful collective memories, as well as tragedies.
“Please help us support the ones who believe that they are part of a global collective family so we can come together on better days.”
