A new compilation titled 'Home Fitness/家庭保健' is raising money for medical workers in the areas hit hardest by the COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan, China.
The 19-track record sees contributions from artists based in China and elsewhere, including Mr. Ho, Dubrunner, Ciel, Felicita & Alex Wang, Numbertheory and more, with all proceeds going towards the purchase of protective clothing and other essential goods for frontline medical staff.
"In order to prevent the continued spread of the epidemic, almost all outdoor activities and large gatherings have been temporarily suspended, with the vast majority of people with no choice but to stay at home," the compilation's description reads.
"Stuck at home ourselves, we wondered how we could help. So we put together this fundraising compilation Home Fitness, which includes 19 tracks from 20 producers from both inside and outside of China. We hope to raise some money to help those fighting against the epidemic, while also bringing some of those trapped at home together with some new music to ease out some anxiety."
The spread of the COVID-19 virus has led to major international music events being called off, including Miami's Ultra, Tomorrowland Winter in France, SXSW and Beat Hotel in Morrocco which has been forced to postpone this year's edition.
