AUDIE CORNISH, HOST:

It's been a week since a massive fire broke out at a warehouse in Oakland, Calif. Thirty-six people were killed. The warehouse was called Ghost Ship. It was an underground art scene. At the time of the fire, it was hosting an electronic music concert. Some of the people who died were up-and-coming musicians. We have a sampling now of some of their music produced by our friends at Youth Radio, who are based in Oakland.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "WILD ABANDON")

UNIDENTIFIED SINGER #1: (Singing) Got me (ph), got me, got me, got me, got me, got me, got me, got me (unintelligible), got me, got me, got me, got me, got me, got me, got me, got me (unintelligible).

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "ALL DAY")

UNIDENTIFIED SINGER #2: (Singing) All day, all day, all day, all day, all day, all day, all day, all day, all day, all day, all day, all day, all, all day, all day.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "ALL THE PLEASANTRIES")

UNIDENTIFIED SINGER #3: (Singing) Will you still stay with me, be brave with me? We'll walk this road together.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "US NOW")

UNIDENTIFIED SINGER #4: (Singing, inaudible) - when days go by (inaudible).

CORNISH: That was the music of Chelsea Faith Dolan, known as Cherushii, Johnny Igaz, known as Nackt, Travis Hough of the group Ghost of Lightning and Cash Askew, a member of Them Are Us Too. They all died in the warehouse fire in Oakland, Calif., last week. That mix was produced by Cari Campbell and Brandon McFarland of Youth Radio.
