The album features works by some of the leading artists and groups on the lively alternative side of the Jerusalem musical tracks, such as MARiiA, Markey Funk and Harel Schreiber’s Group Modular duo, Emmanuel Witzthum, 40 Prophets and Boney FM.

The collection also includes two tracks recorded as part of the Melachlechim (Getting Dirty) improvisational project.

Melachlechim is a band of artists who had not previously worked together, met for the first time on stage and improvised an entire live set together. The recordings, from two sessions, also include vocals by Ryskinder and Maksim Turbo.

Raash Hour, which operates as a collective of underground artists, is also the driving force behind the annual Hachazit (Frontline) underground music event which this year took place at Hamazkakeh in Jerusalem in August.
