Touched Music has revealed it will put out a new compilation titled ‘Touched 3’ on July 29. The mammoth release contains 417 tracks, with some of the world’s most prominent electronic artists featured.
808 State, Amon Tobin, Autechre, Bibio, CJ Bolland, Future Sound Of London, Holly Herndon (pictured), Mark Broom, Mr Signout, Nils Frahm and Plaid represent a fraction of the wealth of talent featured on ‘Touched 3’.
All proceeds will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support, a cause that Touch has already raised over £38,000 for since its launch in late 2013.
Speaking about the project, label founder Martin Boulton said: “After three years of running Touched, ‘Touched 3’ is the biggest and (I think) the best release to date. I've been overwhelmed from the start with the support and kindness of everyone who has contributed to, and been touched by, Touched Music. Not only can people feel good from giving to charity, they get a shitload of top tunes - a win-win in my book. Music can make a difference.”
