The DJ and artist electro Millimetrik has decided to launch a new song for the summer colours to support Moisson Québec.
This piece entitled A postcard of Zion is offered at a price of$ 2 on the portal Bandcamp page of the artist of Quebec, to the address millimetrik.bandcamp.com.
Ninety percent of the profits will go directly to the organization, which, for the past 31 years, is the only food bank in the greater Quebec city region.
“I wanted to do my part and do it quickly. I chose Moisson Québec because it is a local organization in my city. I saw, like everyone else, new, that, their needs have increased 300%. There are plenty of people who have never done business with this kind of service and who are in need. It was obvious”, he said in a telephone interview.
Pascal Asselin was given the challenge to compose this song in a week. The room A postcard of Zion is a collaboration with singer King Abid.
“I sent him an audio file, I told him what I wanted as atmosphere and I gave him “carte blanche”, he explained.
The containment we go out of our zones of habit and comfort, the DJ and producer has chosen to do the same with the musical style of this new song.
“It does not look like what I usually do”, he specified, hoping that the people appropriated this song for the summer.
“It will befun“, he dropped.
The DJ and producer has in him all the material to record and perform musical works. He even, for the occasion, built a small studio in his truck converted into a “camper”.
“It was necessary at certain times, with two young children of 4 and 6 years at home. It moves a lot of air”, he stated.
Pascal Asselin wants to sell 1000 in a month.
“I’m a small player in the music industry, but I think it is possible. Moisson Québec turns every dollar donated into five dollars. If I harvest 1000$, it will make the 5000$. It would be huge for me,” he remarked.
Moisson Québec provides assistance to 35 400 persons per month, of which 42% are under 18 years of age, through 125 accredited agencies.
