The six-track compilation features contributions from Kaval, DJ Double Oh!, Ikävä Pii, GoodMostlyBad and Loris, and features the Arabic word “زعاج” on the release’s artwork — which translates as ‘Disruption’.

“Disruption is the approach that, above all, heralds change,” SouqSounds have said on the release. “The need for change is as imperative as ever, so we are called to disrupt: an expression that intervenes, a disturbance that demands attention, a rallying cry that cuts through the overbearing, disempowering white noise of oppression.”
