Halocline Trance is pleased to share "Amnesia is Eternal Optimism" - 2 extended mixes of gracious atmospherics recorded in Etobicoke, Canada across 2 days in summer 2016.

The release is PWYC and available exclusively through the Halocline Trance bandcamp. 100% of proceeds will go to OCHA (United Nations Foundations) famine relief efforts in Somalia.

Over 6 million Somalis are facing displacement, disease and hunger due to extreme drought and persistent regional instability. Extensive flooding from El Nino weather patterns has worsened the situation. Along with parallel crises in South Sudan, Nigeria and Yemen; and political class venality towards foreign aid spending, International Officials are warning of the biggest humanitarian disaster since World War II.
