Atlantics X: The Definitive Collection is a compilation celebrating ten years of Astro Nautico’s history as a label and benefiting our Atlantics X mutual aid project, which we created in April in response to the outbreak of Covid-19.
This album compiles singles from every release in Astro Nautico’s Atlantics X series together with Bandcamp-exclusive remixes, including one track from each of the 14 entries in the Atlantics X catalog and remixes by lil'dave and Astro Nautico co-founders Paul Jones, Sam O.B., and Bennett Kuhn.
This spring Astro Nautico reached out to our community members to identify members’ needs and raise money to counter the rapid collapse of the live music economy. We also asked artists for in-kind donations of music, which became the 16 releases in the Atlantics X series. All streams, sales, and donations related to this music have established a mutual aid fund.
The Atlantics X fund has so far raised and paid artists $4,262.65 with priority to BIPOC. All sales of the Bandcamp-exclusive Definitive Collection bring us closer to meeting the artists’ total needs ($10,300).
We still have more than $6,000 to raise in our fundraising campaign, and live music remains shut down. Please buy this compilation or make a donation today to support artists: www.gofundme.com/f/atlanticsx
Thank you for ten years of being part of this community. We love you.
