Glaswegian label Craigie Knowes returns to the limelight with their second charity LP following last years success featuring heavy hitters Bicep, Move D and Neville Watson to name a few; so we’ve been interested to see the follow up and it hasn't disappointed. The Second Annual Fundraiser – War Child will, like the first, donate all profits to War Child UK, a charity that provides aid to children who are affected and displaced by international conflicts. Featuring tracks from Shanti Celeste, South London duo Chaos in the CBD and a return for old school raver and acid house enthusiast Neville Watson. It’s fair to say Neville has been around the block… and back again, from owning his own record store and label in Windsor to peak time sets in Panorama Bar, fabric and everywhere in-between. Neville’s contribution 'Hazing' does what it says on the tin, a hazy blend of drums and a pulsating baseline will have dancefloors rocking. A great album with an even better cause, big respect to this forward thinking project and the guys behind Craigie Knowes.
