These are this week’s Bandcamp essentials (June 12th)

As a way of supporting the artists and labels impacted through the coronavirus pandemic, we've launched a weekly roundup of the most vital Bandcamp releases. This week, dig into tracks, EPs, albums and comps from Coco Bryce, Dark Entries, Finn, Flore & Hodge, Hooversound, Sally C and more

The pandemic of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has had a devastating impact on our scene, leading to the cancellation of countless club nights and festivals across the world.

Artists have been heavily impacted too, having their main revenue streams disconnected for the foreseeable future.

With tour cancellations and festival postponements leaving many members of the international electronic music community out of pocket, Bandcamp has become an even more vital platform for supporting the music you love, with 80% of all sales from the online music store going directly to artists and labels. Last month, the platform announced it would be waiving its revenue share for all sales for one day, and on 20th March, took no cut from purchases made. In total, $4.3 million was spent on music over the course of 24 hours, all going straight to the creators. On 1st of May, it waived its revenue share again for 24 hours, raising $7 million for artists and labels. With two more Bandcamp days lined up for 5th June and 3rd July, it’s time to start adding releases to your Wishlist to grab on the day to ensure all of your spending goes directly to the artists and labels you love! 

As a show of solidarity to support the artists and labels impacted through the pandemic, we have launched a weekly roundup of the most vital Bandcamp releases.

The list demonstrates a lot of what there is to love about our scene, with artists, labels and promoters also pulling together to help those that need it most in these tumultuous times through charity compilations and EPs.
