In honor of 4/20, aka National Marijuana Day, forward-thinking electronic label SectionZ Records will be releasing a free two-part 31-track compilation, titled SectionZ Higher, that encompasses the diversity of their roster and highlights the label’s strong commitment to marijuana law reform. This free double album features tracks from lauded SectionZ artists like Savant and Mr. Bill alongside relative newcomers like Evoke, Panda Coast, and Zanski.
SectionZ as a whole are major proponents of cannabis legalization and feel that it is an important component of both the artistic process for their artists and the listening process for their fans. “To us there is no better way to listen than to have a free mind,” says label founder/manager Josh Hernandez, “and weed certainly can help accomplish this and even train you to listen beyond the surface.”
The compilation is split into two parts, Indica & Sativa, which are named after the two main types of marijuana strains and which take into account how each affects the body and mind. Higher: Indica, named for what is typically associated with a “body high,” where one feels relaxation, features some of the more laid back tracks from the label, whereas Higher: Sativa, named for what is typically associated with a “head high,” where one feels more energetic, contains more upbeat tracks.
“Our artists and ethos support the legalization and responsible use both to listen and create,” says Hernandez. “We would proudly stand with any artist or community in this regard and provide our network and resources to the cause.”
