How many times have you opened a bag of chips only to be disappointed by the measly amount in the bag? How many times have you spent 50, 100 dollars at the grocery store, returned home and said out loud, “This is all I got?” How many articles of clothing have you outgrown, ruined, lost, or simply decided that it isn’t “you” anymore? How many songs have you actually paid for, and then come back to it later and wondered why you ever bought it? We’ve all been there, plagued by these particular first-world problems. We all wonder where the money goes, and whose pocket it lines. Today more than ever, consumers like you and I are interested in the end user. We want to know exactly who our dollars endorse. In the case of music sales, we all want the creative intelligences behind our favorite sounds to reap the benefits of our praise and support. We want the artists, labels, venues, and promoters we love to know it and see the evidence of it in receipts. This is how the world operates for now. Purchasing power is the consumer’s weapon and soapbox. We put our money where our mouth is, and companies, corporations, governments, even nations listen. Yet, there are a billion small purchases made every day that have literally NO REAL VALUE. Like Chinese food, we buy a ton of it and are hungry an hour later.
What if you could eat one meal that satisfied your hunger, satisfied your pleasure center, nourished and energized you for the whole year? Wouldn’t that meal be infinitely more valuable than any other? Wouldn’t you like, for once, to get way more than you paid for? This is how we at Betamorph Recordings feel about the Dubsteppers for Haiti project. We believe the satisfaction gained from every dollar spent on these tracks exceeds that of that of any other album on the market. Here’s why. We know the tracks on the release are bangers. We’ve worked tirelessly with the artists refining some tunes, re-mastering and re-working others, and also securing brand new tunes, so that every track is a unique version just for this release. Some of our favorites include Tim Ismag’s “X-Men”, D-Jahsta’s “Slug Bass”, Fonik’s “Pain Game”, and “London Riots” from Rednek. All in all we’ve included 31 top-notch pieces so we know there will be something for everyone, and plenty of it. We’ve made it available through all quality digital download avenues including our own website, so we know that it’s accessible to every human being that can get to a computer.
Finally, and of the utmost importance, every dollar or two that you would pay for each track goes toward our account with the Haitian Health Foundation http://www.haitianhealthfoundation.org/index.php/programs/development-projects/ . In the past, we have made our contributions through Americares, but this time we wanted to use a group that was more specifically oriented in Haiti, so that we will be able to track our contribution and know exactly who it goes to and how it benefits them. With this particular foundation we are able to finance 3 things that will literally make and entire family live better for years to come. We will contribute a goat, an out-house style enclosed bathroom, and an entire house built from concrete with a tin roof and a finished floor. These items will significantly improve a families quality of life almost immediately. Disease, famine, and poverty, decimate the population each year. For a Haitian family, a goat means income from selling milk, and meat; not to mention the pride and emotional satisfaction that comes from raising living things. Living in the U.S.A., many of us are unaware that more people in the world live without any form of proper waste removal facility, than do. Giving a family a real toilet will dramatically decrease their susceptibility to disease and bacterial infection, added to that, is the protection of the enclosed home which will keep out rodents, insects, predators, and the elements, which are all killers to a family that sleeps on the ground in ramshackle huts.
We do this in the spirit of oneness, brotherhood, and duty. In 2012 we pledge to make internal changes that will increase our outward flow of energy to the coffers of humanity’s well-being. We will grow as a company and as individuals, because of our efforts, to contribute to that which saves us all.
