‘Touched. Two’ Mega Compilation Due Out November 28 – Proceeds Benefit Macmillan Cancer Support

Last year we ran a piece about Touched, a Macmillan Cancer Support fundraising release compiled by Welsh electronica artist Martin Boulton (a.k.a. Min-y-Llan). Volume two of the download only bundle is due out in just over a weeks time and details about who’s on it, as well as how to get a copy for yourselves, can be found below.

Touched 2 is a whopping 253 tracks in size and the big news is that Martin has managed to secure unreleased music by the likes of 808 State, Autechre, Machinedrum, Orbital, Plaid, Richard Devine and (literally) many more for it! Once again all proceeds will be going to Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity who have so far benefited to the tune of £7,500 thanks to the series.

Cribbing from the press release:

The Touched series releases its finale this year in the form of a mega-compilation, with over 250 artists donating songs to raise money for cancer support in the UK. Expect original, unreleased tracks from some of the biggest names in electronic and modern classical music, along with talented, rising producers.

“Touched. Two” is the ninth album in the series, and will be available on Bandcamp November 28th worldwide, alongside the back catalogue. The Touched series has raised nearly £7,500 / $12,000 thus far, and all donations are funneled through the Touched JustGiving account.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
