NVST: Hoe_mies 4 Palestine

Hoe_​mies 4 Pales­tine serves as a joint artis­tic state­ment from the femme & queer Hoe_​mies artist net­work against the ongo­ing suf­fer­ing in Gaza. Among the tracks, NVSTs Busy Time Square has been includ­ed in the compilation. 

The edits and orig­i­nal tracks touch on a range of gen­res, where House, Tech­no, Bass music and Breaks meet Hip Hop, Pop, Brazil­ian Funk and RnB references. 

In their own words:

We demand an imme­di­ate per­ma­nent cease­fire to stop the killing of civil­ians, uncon­di­tion­al pas­sage of human­i­tar­i­an aid and goods, an end to ille­gal set­tler vio­lence, and the com­pli­ance of all par­ties with inter­na­tion­al human­i­tar­i­an law.

We wish for the Pales­tin­ian peo­ple to final­ly live their lives in safe­ty, self deter­mi­na­tion and joy. We strong­ly stand against all anti-Mus­lim racism and anti­semitism. As artists who are able to cre­ate freely, we take our duty to speak up and mobi­lize for an end to Apartheid and geno­cide seri­ous­ly. No one can be free until all of us are free.

We hope for any­one buy­ing, lis­ten­ing, and play­ing these tracks in their sets to think of the lives lost. Send your love and prayers to the Pales­tin­ian peo­ple who aren’t only sub­ject­ed to indis­crim­i­nate bomb­ings and unpros­e­cut­ed killings but also face star­va­tion and dis­ease. Raise your voice and con­tin­ue to be loud until jus­tice is served.”

All prof­its gen­er­at­ed from this release will go to Doc­tors With­out Bor­ders / Médecins Sans Fron­tieres relief efforts.

Hoe_​mies start­ed out as a club night, turned polit­i­cal state­ment against the monot­o­ny of a male dom­i­nat­ed DJ and pro­mot­er scene. Their mis­sion is to embold­en our com­mu­ni­ty by pri­or­i­tiz­ing safe­ty and show­cas­ing female and queer talent.
