After the atrocities at the Manchester Arena last month, the people of the city did what they do best, pulled together and showed the world their amazing spirit.
Nothing can change what happened on that horrific night but the musicians of Manchester decided to create ‘Manchester With Love’, a huge compilation of stunning tracks.
So here you have it, an outpouring of love from the Manchester music community to the people of the city, celebrating our diversity and unity. The collection will raise funds for those affected by the devastating events on the 22nd May 2017, over 200 Mancunian artists have donated their music for free and all monies raised will go directly to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.
‘Manchester With Love’ will be sold digitally through Bandcamp.com and Boomkat.com. Bandcamp, as standard for charity releases, will reduce the percentage they take from sales. Boomkat will take nothing, meaning that 100% of sales will go to the fund.
The collection is a sampler of the compilation’s 200+ tracks, showcasing the variety of heartfelt talent the city has on offer including Post Punk Funk from A Certain Ratio, electronic soundscapes from 808 State, soulful Hip Hop from The Bluntskins, Trash Punk from John Peel favorites Inca Babies, atmospheric Drum & Bass from Dub Phizix, moody Jazz from Matthew Halsall and so much more in between.
The album will be for sale as a bundle, so individual tracks will not be available to purchase separately.
