Music Sans Frontieres is a charity compilation (proceeds going, perhaps unsurprisingly, to Medicins Sans Frontieres) which features new and exclusive music from a range of electronic acts – most notably B12, Plaid and Milanese (as well as Radioactive Man, Global Goon and others).

Released through Balkan Vinyl it’s a name-your-price download. If you can’t afford to pay money for it do your bit and spread the word so that richer people may find out and donate.

Medecins Sans Frontieres, also known as ‘Doctors Without Borders’ is an impartial, independent, and neutral organisation that provide medical and humanitarian aid wherever needed, across the globe.

With the current civil war in Syria, much of the media focus has been on the political aspects, forgetting the thousands of victims and refugees. medicines Sans Frontieres, and their volunteers, are still on the ground in the region providing aid.

The artists have contributed their music for free. All profits go to MSF.

Probably my favourite new artist to emerge this year is Sharaya J – Missy Elliot’s latest protege. The rapper/choreographer made quite the statement with her debut release Banji back in May.

BANJI is an acronym, movement and rallying cry from Sharaya; it stands for – Be Authentic Never Jeopardise Individuality. Last month a new single and video was released and doesn’t let up on the quality. Smash Up The Place.

LOVE THIS! Nuff said… HTRK – Poison (Mika Vainio remix) on Ghostly International.

A new Blue Daisy track is streaming – Cries Of The Beast continues in the 808-loving, trap-leaning vein of his Dahlia Black project and arrives ahead of his Psychotic Love EP, due out in early December on 37 Adventures.
