Actress launches T-shirt range and exclusive mixtape for Black Minds Matter UK

Actress has teamed up with LA art collective Brain Dead to raise funds for Black Minds Matter UK, a mental health fund that provides free therapy sessions.

The London artist designed a limited edition T-shirt range, with art by Antares Embroidery, that went on sale last Friday. Each purchase gives the buyer access to Actress’s Unseen_Werk No 1 mixtape, with 100 percent of proceeds going to the UK-based charity.

“I’ve always been concerned with the development but also the protection of young Black minds,” Actress said. “Before releasing records I was mentoring music production classes for disenfranchised South London Kids, and since developing my own platform as an artist, I’ve been searching for ways to further promote Black creativity.”

Unseen_Werk No 1 is Actress’s third release of the year following on from his free-to-download 88 album and Karma & Desire (which came out on Ninja Tune).

The T-shirt (and access Unseen_Werk No 1) is available here (for black shirts) and here (for white shirts).
