All proceeds from her label, On Board Music, go towards rescuing asylum-seekers traversing the Mediterranean Sea.

Laura BCR—a French DJ and the founder of On Board Music—is releasing her third compilation to support refugees crossing the Mediterranean Sea.
All proceeds from the release, The Meaning of Time Part III, will go towards Sea Watch, a German NGO that deploys and operates boats to rescue refugees facing dangerous border crossings.
"On Board Music has been supporting the actions of Sea Watch from quite some time now, and during the pandemic there was a urge of supporting their considerable work as the situation was getting out of control,” reads the press release. “We decided to gather the energy of our artists to be able to increase the support to this NGO. This has been a very huge work but also an amazing experience to see all the producers very much motivated and giving time to the cause.”
The Meaning of Time Part III was born from an open call by On Board, inviting new artists to remix the works of the label's more established members. The resulting 22 tracks offer a snapshot of modern ambient and deep techno, and feature contributions from artists including Oreste, Eschate, Polygonia, Laima Adelaide and Simone Gatto, and more.
