Noise Manifesto proudly celebrates 10 years of subverting the techno sound with a fabulous 4-part compilation showcasing 18 artists. The artists were carefully selected for their unassuming brilliance and represent a broad spectrum of bodies and techno subgenres. This is a queer positive world Noise Manifesto was dreaming of in 2012 with only a Manifesto and music as a starting point. Now 10 years later, Noise Manifesto celebrates by bringing together artists from Syria to Poland, Japan to Netherlands, Northern Ireland to United States, the blooming queer collectives and the modern twisters of old school. This is a celebration of the interconnectedness of our scene. 10 YEARS of Noise Manifesto presents techno comprised of sonic storytelling (L Ʌ V Σ N, Linn Elisabet, Ayako Mori), classic (Hemka, Lindsey Herbert), punk (Angel Karel, Samantha Togni, Sentimental Rave), industrial (Jassass, Hybral, Lesser Of), fast-paced (OCD, WTCHCRFT), rave (RIOTCODE, Esther Dune), acid hardcore and gabber (Femanyst, Tymon).
To conclude the celebration there will be a bonus track from Paula Temple. 100%% of the income generated from this album will be donated to thebridgetohope.org – a registered not-for-profit in Amsterdam who focuses on supporting 30 people a year recovering from modern slavery. There will be showcase parties coming in 2023.
