Here at Jaxlore and Ego Killer our thoughts go out to all of those effected by the tragedy in Japan. There something about the culture that just screams techno at me and the support of electronic dance music from the Japanese is unparalleled. There are all sorts Japan fund raising compilations coming out but this one shot up on my radar via the folks at Kompakt. The comp sounds off with down tempo chill, high speed Berlinesque techno and new disco future hits. And the label showing really goes to show the love our techno scene has for our friends in Japan. From Audion to Efedemin this 30 something track comp is an amazing showing. 100% of proceeds go to the Red Cross if your purchase the download through Other Music or Bandcamp.by
There is also a great article from our MNML SSGS friends about the state of need from the techno community.
