"Exist Festival/Records returns with its first release of 2023 and its second compilation “No ComplY” a Gaza Skate Park, Fundraiser Compilation. The Compilation features a rare assemblage of dear friends of the label, representing the Middle East and African region. The compilation pays homage to Skate Gaza, a Skate Park near the port of Gaza City, which since 2014 has cultivated a temporary passage of salvation for children escaping what is now commonly accepted as the world’s largest open-air concentration camp. The Skate Park has now evolved into a beacon of hope and an indispensable entity that has empowered children with a sense of community, striving towards a collective sense of liberation and purpose. The Skate Park provides a momentary interlude in space and time, away from an atmosphere, habitually marked by severe dehumanization and premeditated infrastructural deterioration, designed to both regress and ethnically cleanse the besieged inhabitants of Gaza.

With unsustainable rates of PTSD amongst the children in Gaza, the Skate Park fosters a cathartic medium for healing and mindfulness. The Skate Park successfully disrupts existing archaic gender roles by establishing a special skate team for girls whilst providing free lessons and skating equipment. With zero support from the local government, Skate Gaza’s ethos, mirrors Exist’s emblematic DIY attitude, characterized as a homegrown, self-funded project, preserving the autonomy, resilience & resistant Palestinian spirit.

The Hip-hop, pan-African rap, and deconstructed rhythm-inspired compilation will be available on a limited-edition Compact Disc (CD) and available for listening & streaming via Bandcamp, Spotify, Soundcloud, etc.

The release features a limited press of “No ComplY” T-shirts and a very limited number of “No ComplY” skateboards, with a unique design for each skateboard, crafted by our very own Tala & Bader who has been the masterminds behind the project's art direction.

All profits from the release will be distributed to the Skate Gaza team, in an effort to support and expand the Skate Parks mission. We have partnered with 7hills Skate team in Amman who will be providing skating equipment to the team in Gaza, as well as providing free lessons & skills training for the Skate Park team and children.

Exist recognizes the essential nature of raising awareness and finances for the vitalization of the project, but also recognizes the non-financial contributions that will provide indispensable support for the development of skills and the resources required to facilitate such opportunity.
