All proceeds from the LP, which hits Bandcamp this Friday, will go towards rebuilding the Durban artist's studio.
Away From Home, which was originally due to come out in late 2020, will now hit the shelves via Bandcamp on Friday, August 7th, when the online retailer once again waives its usual fees.
The label made the decision after a robbery at Dominowe's house. According to Instagram, the intruders stole two laptops and a hard drive, among other things. All proceeds will go to Dominowe and his family to help him "rebuild his home studio and achieve the necessary funds to let him get back in the game."
Here's the Instagram post in full, and watch Dominowe live from Nyege Nyege Festival in 2018.
