A new WATMM compilation for 2017 based on the theme ‘Wearing Headphones without Listening to Anything’ has been released today, with a brand spanking new and exclusive cubus track, spectrally composed by eye (and finished off by ear). Download the album for free here: cytoplantastic.bandcamp.com
The digital version of the Byzantium compilation is now available for pre-order on bandcamp, with a tape version to follow shortly afterwards. Further details including full track previews available here: https://desolatepresents.bandcamp.com/
After much anticipation Touched Music has finally put out a new compilation titled ‘Touched 3’. The mammoth release contains 417 tracks, with some of the world’s most prominent electronic artists featured.
808 State, Amon Tobin, Autechre, Bibio, (cubus!), CJ Bolland, Future Sound Of London, Holly Herndon, Mark Broom, Mr Signout, Nils Frahm and Plaid represent a fraction of the wealth of talent featured on ‘Touched 3’.
All proceeds will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support, a cause that Touch has already raised over £38,000 for since its launch in late 2013.
Speaking about the project, label founder Martin Boulton said: “After three years of running Touched, ‘Touched 3’ is the biggest and (I think) the best release to date. I’ve been overwhelmed from the start with the support and kindness of everyone who has contributed to, and been touched by, Touched Music. Not only can people feel good from giving to charity, they get a shitload of top tunes – a win-win in my book. Music can make a difference.”

“This album is insane, jumping spanning from wholesome organic ambiance to fucked-up fungal mayhem (and some stuff in between too). As a long time fan of biological topics, I’m very happy with how this turned out.” – Root5
