We hope you doing fine during this ‘deconfinement’ stage, slowly getting back to normal life. Artists worldwide are still in serious limbo, with no concerts, parties and festivals happening this summer up to september, meaning many of them will continue to have no income from their art for the next few months.
Today Bandcamp again waives their commission fee in support of artists and label, which they will do every 1st friday of the month during this crisis and the summer.
If you would like to support our label and artists, please see our catalogue.
We have lowered prices on many digital and physical items, check it out!
we hope you are doing fine and taking care of yourself and your loved ones.

Norooz or Nowruz, also known as the Persian New Year, is celebrated every year on 20/21 March in different countries around the world such as Iran, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, India, Iraq, Syria, Turkey and many more.
It’s all about celebrating spring, a new beginning of the year. Families normally celebrate this event together in parks or in their houses in a “festival-like” atmosphere. Unfortunately, with the current crisis, many countries and communities are in quarantine and many families can not celebrate together.
The Huna sounds collective is all about celebrating good times. They decided to do a live stream for Norooz and invite local & international DJ’s to play from home, featuring Ramin&Reda, Aso Asin, Mafi, Arian Zand, Kuryokin & Rebel Up SebCat.
This Norooz mixtape is made with Iranian, Kurdish, Iraqi and North Syrian sounds, nowruz mobarak! Also up for download, check it out >
