A music studio in west London has released a charity hip hop single to raise money for refugees.
Samurai Sound in North Kensington released I'm Not An Alien with Logic and Mighty Moe of conscious music movement, The People’s Army, earlier this month.
The track is encouraging people to give money to London2Calais, a project which organises convoys of essential supplies from London to refugees in the camp in Calais and provides shelter and aid to those fleeing war-torn countries.
The song highlights the current refugee crisis using unsettling images of refugees fleeing their homes and visuals of people of all cultures and backgrounds holding an ‘I’m Not An Alien’ sign in the street.
It had originally been planned to feature on Logic and Mighty Moe’s ‘Mighty Logic EP’ due for release in the summer of 2016, but a decision was taken to bring it forward to allow it to raise as much money as possible.
Jake O’Neill, director at Samurai Sound, said: “We recorded this track a few months ago and it has naturally evolved into something which we believe can have a major impact.
“On-going global issues have separated some of us from one another here in the UK, and it is in times like these that we need to remind ourselves that we are all human, and if we are all unified, things like war, terrorism, poverty and the refugee crisis would be easier to avoid.
I’m Not An Alien, which features singer-songwriter Maverick Sabre, is available to download for free from the studio website the studio website .
