Gem Drops Two

Dropping Gems is proud to present Gem Drops Two, the second installment of our compilation series Gem Drops. This time we've assembled exclusive material from a whole new set of prominent forward-thinking producers and once again paired them with brand new material from our collective's members. The results speak for themselves: an electric melange of uptempo and downtempo jams, hazy dream melodies, and space station future-flights. As with our last compilation, our basic mission here has been to cull together the "best of" from the diverse range of styles, scenes, head-spaces and localities that catch our ear. We're happy to call that mission a success, one that we hope to share with fans of the first Gem Drops and newcomers alike. We're also happy to announce that all of the money raised by Gem Drops Two will be donated to our friends at the American Cancer Society to support cancer research, in the same manner as the first Gem Drops compilation. Listen, download, donate, and join us for another peek over the horizon.

The album is available as a ”name your price/donation” download on our Bandcamp page. We also have a limited run of pro dubbed cassettes with artwork available for those who donate $15 or more.
