Jordan puts together an exclusive Nocturne charity compilation featuring Phil Kieran, Carlton Doom, Ejeca, T-Bone & more.
From Belfast with Love Volume 1 brings together some of the city's most formidable electronic producers on one compilation.
As a city, Belfast has always been regarded as having a particularly high calibre of electronic music output than most. In parallel with cities across the globe right now, the club scene has sadly ground to a halt, yet as this compilation shows, the music has by no means slowed down.
100% of profits from the compilation will be donated to Trussell Trust. The trust is working with local communities to establish a food bank network right across the UK and to do so as fast as possible. This is crucially important with so many families experiencing the effects of poverty than ever due to the current COVID-19 crisis.
From Belfast with Love places an additional emphasis on new names. Sam Pyper, Matheson & The Vendetta Suite make their Nocturne debuts, a reminder that nurturing deserving talent will be crucial in the post-pandemic re-building of the club landscape.
Elsewhere on the compilation, Mixmag favourite Kessler showcases his impeccable approach to sound design, whilst Shine residents Schmutz deliver a peak time tribute to industry legend, Lyndon Stephens. Recent R&S signing Optmst and consummate musician on the rise, Brien complete the sterling collection.
The compilation drops on Bandcamp on 1st May. Bandcamp will be waiving their fees on this date, and artists have kindly given their time for free. The compilation is available for £5, but if you can afford to donate further, this would be kindly appreciated.
