"We believe it is each generation's responsibility to provide a better future for the next," says NextAid's Co-Founder Lauren Segal. The Los Angeles-based humanitarian organization has partnered with Om Records to release the benefit compilation CD, reBOOT: Notes for the Next Generation, containing unreleased tracks by some of the most recognizable and respected producers, artist and DJs from the world of electronic music.

All proceeds from the net wholesale of this CD will help children in Africa whose parents have died from AIDS. "The (AIDS) situation in South Africa, as most know, is horrific, with many communities creating a generation of orphans, robbed not just of their innocence, but of their chance for a healthy, vital future," explains Om`s Chris Smith. "reBOOT is our attempt to humanize the problem of AIDS in Africa."

There are a myriad of musical styles represented on reboot: From afro-beat, spoken word poetry and soulful house, to dub reggae and "Om" lounge-style downtempo.
