Mall Grab, DJ Plead, Cop Envey, Iota, Lou Karsh and Logic1000 are among the artists who have released unheard music on Bandcamp to support the relief, while labels such as Pelvis, NLV Records, Salt Mines, Butter Sessions, Animals Dancing, Superconscious Records, Burning Rose and Pharmaceutical Audio have promised to contribute up to 100 per cent of profits made by the sale of their releases for the time being.

German imprint and Public Possession and Californian outlet ESP Institute have also committed to supporting the relief funds.

Writing on Instagram, Mall Grab said: “This has all got me incredibly bummed and angry, since I feel I have something of a means to spread a message i’m putting up this “EP” with 4 unreleased mg bits that more than likely would never see the light of day otherwise - i hope this can help at least a little, because i feel like this is all i can do at the moment”.

NPR reports at least 25 people have died in the fires, while 500 million animals are estimated to have died.
