'From our Future Selves' is Berlin-based label ygam’s first non-profit various artists compilation. This 12-tracks gathering was put together to support the organization 'Friends of the Earth' in their aim at challenging the current model of economic and corporate globalization, while promoting solutions that help to create environmentally sustainable and socially just societies. All proceeds from the album will be donated directly to them. In its drive to raise environmental awareness and inspire togetherness, this compilation also shares a sonic facet only slightly explored by the imprint so far: the dance floor's rhythmical occurrences. Indeed, through their various contributions extending from power electronics and heavy bass deconstructions to dense techno cuts, artists propose a wide variety of approaches to club-oriented music and ways for bodies to engage in cadenced investigations.
ygam stands with the missions of 'Friends of the Earth' :
• To collectively ensure environmental and social justice, human dignity, and respect for human rights and peoples' rights so as to secure sustainable societies.
• To halt and reverse environmental degradation and depletion of natural resources, nurture the earth's ecological and cultural diversity, and secure sustainable livelihoods.
• To secure the empowerment of Indigenous Peoples, local communities, women, groups and individuals, and to ensure public participation in decision-making.
• To bring about transformation towards sustainability and equity between and within societies with creative approaches and solutions.
