    All proceeds from this zine and the accompanying compilation will go to Critical Resistance, an organization that provides crucial resources on transformative justice and seeks to build an international movement to end the Prison Industrial Complex by challenging the belief that caging and controlling people makes us safe.

    "At its darkest, the rave community can begin to resemble the carceral state. People with harmful addictions are villainized and left to fend for themselves, banned from or shunned within the communities they once turned to as a source of joy and feeling of camaraderie. People involved in multilateral conflicts repurpose the language of (social) justice and safety to create stark victim-abuser dualities and “cancel” people over infractions that could have been solved through creative community-driven interventions. Highly visible, decisive actions mitigate risk, but at what cost? Decisions begin to be made based on metrics, profits, ego—in much the same way as we see in the greater world—under the guise of “community.”

    If this is not a utopian vision, then what is it?

    I hope that this project can serve as a collection of perspectives that, at the very least, helps us build empathy and develop a shared understanding of tools and frameworks that others use to stay afloat in our work trying to serve everyone who is willing to acquiesce to the dancefloor and carry some of its residue back."

    Edition of 200.

"SPNT001 - For The Rave / When The Rave Is Not Enough" features producers who’ve created mixes for Spontaneous Affinity in the past as well as our extended family around the globe, and is available on its own or included with every purchase of our year two zine.

Part 1, "For The Rave", features 9 tracks ready for an emotional and cathartic dancefloor. Part 2, "When The Rave Is Not Enough", is for the reflective moments at home and on the sidelines. This compilation can be consumed as two mini albums in sequence, though the tracks can stand alone, too.

Thanks so much to the artists for being part of this.

All proceeds will be donated to Critical Resistance.
