Lost on You is the first electronic music record label and benefit program to donate all money raised from album sales to the fight against malnutrition, poor health and sanitary problems in the most deprived parts of our world. We combine our philanthropic work with a devotion to discovering, promoting and mentoring talented underground artists who are struggling to find a platform to showcase their work.
Where top labels give less and less opportunities to unknown producers, Lost on You provide a platform that allows artists to be heard, all while helping the less fortunate to improve their quality of life. The label is a platform for talent, where talent becomes a way to help alleviate some of the toughest problems faced by tens of thousands of humans around the world. We regularly release cutting-edge techno music from up-and-coming producers, alongside organising underground events in Paris that raise funds for charity and the promotion of new artists.
Some of the programs include Living Goods and the One Acre Fund, who provide sanitary aid, food, clothes, school materials, seeds for food growing and medicine to people in the poorest parts of Africa, such as Ethiopia and Kenya. The Vitamin A Supplementation provides critical nutrition to at-risk children around the world. “Vitamin A deficiency (VAD) is the leading cause of preventable blindness in children and increases the risk of disease and death from severe infections,” per the World Health Organization. Each supplement costs less than $1 to deliver.
The Vitamin A Supplementation (VAS) programs deliver nutritional supplements to preschool aged children in several ways. Mass distribution campaigns, like National Immunization Days or Child Health Days, integrate VAS into broader campaigns that address a variety of public health issues simultaneously.
The One Acre Fund program provides farmers with seeds and fertilizers based on credit, making these supplies affordable and accessible. In addition, One Acre Fund provides up-to-date agricultural training to improve harvests, and helps farmers safely store their crops and build relationships with local traders.
When farmers improve their harvests, they produce more food for their families and communities. By 2020, One Acre Fund estimates that participating farmers will produce a surplus of food to feed an additional 5 million of their neighbors.
These two strands of our mission thus work together in new and unexplored ways. The objectives of our project are manifold, but the guiding principle is in using music to do something great, and something that really matters: helping others to rise above, from the local to the international.
