"“On The Quiet” is a dance floor-focused story about the transition of many electronic musicians from punk rock and skateboarding into house music and about how dance-music can be a field for social conscious awareness.
“On The Quiet” is a reflex of the path that many contemporary electronic musicians have crossed, starting on punk and developing into diversity while keeping some of the ethics of punk school. Friends were invited to sing on some tracks and there’s Ian MacKaye’s (the man behind such important bands as Minor Threat, Fugazi or the Dischord label) voice about skateboarding manners and urban alternative interpretations. The record also features an artwork by Braulio Amado with extensive biographical writings, all the lyrics, interviews with Igor Cavalera (former member of Sepultura and Mixhell) and David Andersson of Punks Jump Up beautifully crafted with fanzine-styled aesthetics.

The MLKSHK > MLTSHP transition team has been hard at work making plans and figuring out details so that we can make sure our community can live on (please see here if you’d like more information: https://github.com/MLTSHP...)
NOW WE NEED YOUR HELP!
In order to make this transition happen, the team needs to cover all sorts of startup costs - like legal fees for setting up an LLC and creating a TOS, and initial costs related to domains and hosting. Our current estimates are in the neighborhood of $1000 - $1500, and we have created a pay-portal at Generosity.com where everyone can come and pitch in a one-time contribution to get us started:
Note: the site auto-fills in a ”suggested” donation amount (and a donation to itself). We can’t change this default behavior, but everyone CAN edit the two amounts to be whatever you want them to be, so don’t be thrown by that.
Please be aware that this is THE FIRST OF TWO FUNDRAISERS: this first one will cover costs to set up the site and get it ready to open for business. The second one will be a MLTSHP subscription drive, to make sure that the new site has enough members to keep it running going forward.
If we raise more than required to cover startup costs, the remainder will either be put towards maintaining the site, or will be spent on MLTSHP stickers or other swag that can be sent to contributors to thank you for your support. We will show you where ALL the money goes. Promise.
So let’s all dig deep and pull together to make sure we can build a place where our community can thrive. OPERATORS ARE STANDING BY!
