Producing duo Vast & Harker‘s new song “Nirbhaya” features vocals by British Indian singer Rita Morar. Inspired by a horrific sexual assault in India and violence against women in general, a portion of the song’s proceeds will be donated to the women’s rights charity Breakthrough. It’s a dark, lovely song on a sadly topical subject which benefits a very worthy cause.
Vast & Harker are an ambient/dubstep/triphop duo fronted by a producer who apparently goes by several Vast-variant aliases – Vast, Vast Arts, Vast Minority, etc. I especially like the atmospheric instrumentals “Aurora,” “Falling” and “Dance of Dawn” – the latter features a sample of an African Bayaka tribe performing their traditional early morning song “Yelli.”
