Touched: Macmillan Cancer Support Fundraising Release

Touched is a compilation album by Welsh electronica artist Martin Boulton (a.k.a. Min-y-Llan) aimed at raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Gathering an extremely diverse bunch of electronic artists and soon to be released on Bandcamp and iTunes, the reason behind the project are best said by the compiler himself:

“In the summer of 2013 my mother told me she had breast cancer. It’s been a rough ride.”

“I’m not really into running or doing a bike ride (music has always been my passion) so I though I’d put the feelers out to see what music friends would help make a compilation album.”

“Some of the artists I have asked are on big record labels like Warp, City Centre Offices etc whilst some are label mates from labels I have been on.”

“So far we have 50+ tracks.”

“I’ve called it Touched as most people have been touched by cancer in some way and I’m touched by the response I’ve had to the project. The album will be a pay-what-you-can release and each artist has given me one track each.”
