In a time where DJs and electronic music producers are raking in millions off of festival appearances and Vegas residencies, Los Angeles duo SoySauce are looking to do something a little different. Comprised of producer/songwriter Royal and the elusive SoyBoy, SoySauce are establishing themselves as a "social artist project," using the prominence of dance music and culture to fill hungry stomachs. Their debut Lunch Money EP has immense drums and bracing synths all over it, and all proceeds from the iTunes sales of the record are going to the LA Food Bank and their BackPack program, helping kids receiving free or subsidized lunches during the school week from going hungry over the weekend.
"This EP was inspired by the kid without the Lunchables. Without the snack pack. The kid without the Dunkaroos," SoySauce told the FADER in an email. "This EP helps make sure every kid eats!" Stream the new EP below.
