Familiar Strangers releases compilation in aid of Afghan Refugees

3 Minute Read

The Bristol label will donate profits from the compilation to the International Rescue Committee.

Titled “Stranger Together” – the compilation features music from a number of well respected musicians and producers including Dylan Forbes, Ciel, Alphonse and more.

Familiar Strangers is a record label run and founded by Bristol based producer Remotif. This 11 track release taps into a diverse selection of dancefloor tracks from producers across the world.

The International Rescue Committee is presently working in Afghanistan to help refugees and families who have been affected by widespread famine, poverty and malnourishment as a result of economic sanctions.


Afghanistan was plunged into national crisis after the West withdrew troops and economic aid following government upheaval and Taliban rule. There has since been widespread criticism of the lack of co-operation and assistance offered whilst the IRC warns of growing humanitarian catastrophe in Afghanistan as economic freefall pushes 9 million people to the brink of famine.

More information on the current crisis can be found on their website and was documented this week on John Simpson’s BBC Panorama special.

This compilation aims to raise awareness and draw attention to the crisis with funds going directly in support of the IRC.
