Big Love from Electro Hearts: Radio Happy Music Compilation for the Haiyan​/​Yolanda Victims

76 tracks/artists. 9 hours of electro heaven. This is the first compilation album to come out of the Radio Happy community. Yolande  got in touched with her music community after hearing the tragedy that hit my country late November this year. The musicians were quick to respond eagerly contributing their best tracks. There were more who tried to contribute but it was decided that 76 tracks were enough.

I listened to the album for two days. You are in for a surprise if you think this is another dance album. It isn’t. It covers the wide spectrum of electronic music from dance, ambient, new age, space music and even pop. If you want a quick education about electronic music then this compilation is the best that you can find. There’s even an interesting cover of Feels Like Heaven(originally done by Fiction Factory) by Among the Echoes.

These musicians have spent much of their lives crafting electronic music in their own style so expect quality on top of excellent musicianship that I always find in electronic artists. I’ve done my cursory study of these musicians and they have devoted fans who try to tweet or post on facebook this interesting compilation. Even if you are not into electronic music, this album will change your mind.

What’s the reason behind this compilations?

“It is just a bit what we can do. I think it is more the thought of feeling helpless. Nobody can do a thing…
Children are the future. This is important.
This looked good and felt good to me ( maybe because I am a mother as well)
I hope the chaos can be rebuild, and people can start a live again in a few years…”-Yolande.

You can download the album for 7.50 Euros here: http://radiohappy.bandcamp.com/

All proceeds will go to www.savethechildren.org.

Notes from the album:

Radio Happy would like to help the Philippines, since one of our DJs lives there.  We wanted to create an album with Electronic music, in several styles, ambient, berlin school, synthpop, experimental, drones and more. I think we can be proud with the result! The money from the compilation will go to Save the Children.
