Posted: 2 June 2015. Updated: 2 June 2015


A new dance album inspired by Lion Ark will raise funds to help Animal Defenders International (ADI) save animals in distress. Released by the UK’s leading hardstyle label Nutty Traxx ‘Freedom’ features an eclectic mix of global artists from around the world.

DJ and Producer James ‘Nutty Traxx’ Brierley, who saw Lion Ark at a gala West End screening last year (pictured) said "Seeing their amazing South American rescue mission unfold in Lion Ark was an incredibly moving experience for me and I am delighted to be able to support the inspiring and important work of Animal Defenders International through this eclectic new album. Download ‘Freedom’ today and help ADI protect and save animals around the world.”

Available to download at all major MP3 portals including Amazon, Beatport, Itunes and Junodownload, ‘Freedom’ features tracks from Viktor Sazunger, James Identity, Tiifa, Renegade System, Connected and Chano Diaz Limaco, whose music also appears on the Lion Ark soundtrack.

Lion Ark Producer and ADI President Jan Creamer said “We are currently undertaking our biggest ever rescue mission in Peru and Colombia where we are enforcing bans on the use of wild animals in circuses, so the timing of “Freedom” could not be better. We are hugely grateful to James and Nutty Traxx for compiling this amazing selection of artists. People can get a great album knowing that every track that is downloaded really will help an animal take a step towards freedom.”

The artists on the mini album come from around the world, including the UK, Sweden, and, appropriately Peru, where for a year ADI has been undertaking Operation Spirit of Freedom rescuing over 80 animals including 33 lions, a tiger, a puma, over 20 monkeys and real-life Paddington bear Cholita, a hairless endangered Spectacled bear whose plight captured the hearts of people around the world.

Every download from the “Freedom” album raises money to help ADI’s rescue work, with all the tracks donated by the artists.

Featuring an international soundtrack including Joan Jett, Joe Strummer, Los Peyotes, Wire, Chano Diaz Limaco, Chris Knight and an original score by Karel Havlicek, Lion Ark is in worldwide TV and VOD distribution with ITV Global and returns soon for selected cinema screenings in the UK and USA.
