These are this week's vital Bandcamp releases (3rd April)

As a show of solidarity to support the artists and labels impacted through the cornavirus pandemic, we've launched a weekly roundup of the most vital Bandcamp releases. This week, dig into EPs, albums and comps from Octo Octa, Minor Science, Livity Sound, Rhythm Section International, Fio Fa 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. 

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 pulling together to help those that need it most in these tumultuous times.
