Posthuman and Balkan Vinyl have put together a new charity compilation of electronic music, raising money & awareness for Médecins Sans Frontières. If you like high quality techno and electronica then this is your bag, barely a duff track on it, which is rare for comps like this where artists are giving work for free. This is no collection of off-cuts with stand out tracks by Shadow Dancer, Posthuman, B12, Jokers of the Scene and Radioactive Man.
Médecins Sans Frontières – also known as ‘Doctors Without Borders’ – is an impartial, independent, and neutral organisation that provide medical and humanitarian aid wherever needed, across the globe. With the current civil war in Syria, much of the media focus has been on the political aspects, often forgetting the tens of thousands of victims and refugees. Médecins Sans Frontières, and their volunteers, are still on the ground in the region providing aid.
It’s available on a ‘pay what you choose’ basis – you can download for free or any amount you decide at the balkanvinyl bandcamp page and they will donate here (and claim gift aid) on your behalf or you can go to Just Giving.com and donate directly. All profits go directly to MSF. All of the artists have contributed their music for free. It is entirely digital to ensure as much money as possible goes to charity
Artists on the 18 track compilation include: Posthuman, Hrdvsion, Echaskech, Trackman, Global Goon, B12, Plaid, Milanese, Radioactive Man
