The waiting room was sparse and cold, the only objects in the room were a trail of chairs that lined the bare, grey walls.

ANY BPM Vol.2 marks the second charitable various artists compilation from Bristolian imprint and collective excess. The first instalment dropped last year, raising money for Music Venue Trust’s #saveourvenues campaign, and now they’re focusing on collecting funds for FareShare Southwest, a charity donating surplus food to families, charities and community projects in Bristol and the surrounding areas. Spanning everything from 2-step, grime, UK funky and jungle, the release features music from 19 artists from around the world including Kaval, yourboykiran, Bolam and Fiyahdred.
