Kompakt Benefit Compilation For Japan

Even if the headlines are now dominated by other topics, many of our Japanese friends are still in a dire situation. Kompakt's family of distributed labels feels the urge to help, so here it comes: 34 tracks handpicked by the owners of some of the world's leading labels in electronic music: Ostgut Ton, Freude Am Tanzen, Bpitch Control, Dial, Kompakt, Comeme, Raster Noton, Monika, RRrygular, Vidab Records, Optimo Music, Anticipate and many more. Ranging from ethereal ambient sounds to pumping club sounds of Berlin, New York's new disco underground and leftfield experimentations, there's something for everyone.

There are many options as to where you can purchase this special compilation, but we encourage you to buy the compilation from Bandcamp or Other Music as 100% of the proceeds will go directly to The Red Cross Society Of Japan. The pricing for the compilation is € 7.99 for all 34 tracks, or € .99 per individual track. Bandcamp also offers you the option to pay more as an extra donation.

How to buy:

We would like to thank the following labels and companies for participating in our effort to help:
