With the world is still in shock over the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in March, the global community has shown an overwhelming outpouring of generosity and support. Many people involved in the music industry have held benefit events to raise money for the relief effort and joining these is music distributor Wordandsound, who are prepping a three part charity compilation called JAPANEASE. The release contains around 100 tracks from artists such as Nicolas Jaar, Tensnake, Virgo Four, John Roberts, Steve Bug, Die Vögel and many more.
All artists and labels involved made their contribution completely free of charge. JAPANEASE is a commendable effort to ease the terrible suffering in the Land of the Rising Sun. 100% of the income generated by the compilations will be donated to the area of Sendai/Miyagi that was hit hardest.
The German Japanese Association in Hamburg will make sure that 100 percent of the donations will arrive to where they are needed most. JAPANEASE will be released mid of April 2011 in digital formats.
