This is the second in a series of compilations of emerging artists from Cambridge which has been curated by Dave Hammond whose fortnightly show on Cambridge 105 Radio, The Smelly Flowerpot, is a mainstay of the cities music scene. Such is the current scene in the Cambridge area, there are already enough tracks donated for a further compilation.
Aside from putting some superb music out there, the aim is also to raise money for deserving charities. For volume 2, the charity is Cambridgeshire Alliance for Independent Living, this is a Disabled People’s User led Organisation (DPULO), which is an organisation run by people with disabilities for people with disabilities, their families and their carers who live in Cambridgeshire.
What started out as a vague idea to pull a few tracks together soon snowballed into the current multi genre epic, fired by the enthusiasm of the artists involved. The more the perpetrator scratched at the surface of the local music scene, the more it became apparent how much excellent music was out there.

For around the price of a couple of pints you can have a lasting legacy of the flourishing scene in a City as diverse and thrilling as the music it has inspired, while at the same time providing some much needed funds for a very deserving local charity.
