Side-Line launches free 88-track strong EBM charity compilation: ‘Electronic Bodies’

🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Available now from Bandcamp is our brand new 88-track strong EBM charity compilation “Electronic Bodies”.

This collection dives deep into the rhythms of EBM (Electronic Body Music), New Beat, and their contemporary offshoots. The compilation features artists from countries spanning from Germany to Australia, the United States to Estonia, and many more. It’s clear: EBM still resonates worldwide and this after the genre was established more than 40 years ago!

The compilation features known and completely new bands.

Bernard Van Isacker who compiled the release explains: “Our commitment to showcasing a blend of emerging talents and seasoned bands remains unwavering. We remain a platform to launch new talents after all. And while not every artist boasts high-end studio equipment, a special shoutout to Erlend Eilertsen (Lights A.M, Essence Of Mind) for masterfully enhancing some of the tracks when needed.”

The compilation is a tale of two halves: the first immerses you in old-school vibes, while the latter offered the bands some extra freedom as far as sound is concerned.

All donations this time will go to psychological support for Ukraine soldiers and citizens suffering from PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). Van Isacker: “We have to realize really well that these traumatized people will need to return to society, and they will need all the help possible to fight their demons and become part of the daily life again. Hence why this time we are going to support some NGO’s that work on this specific topic. They have a huge task ahead of them, so every help we can provide, we will provide.”



For those who love a tangible connection to the music, we offer an exclusive ‘Electronic Bodies’ T-shirt (for men and women) and, in true EBM spirit, you can get a combo package holding also a limited edition, hand-numbered Electronic Bodies flask. Each merchandise order also includes a download of the compilation, ensuring the beats never stop.

Shipping takes places in the first week of October. Please make sure to place your order as soon as possible so we know what stock we need to order.

Thanks for your continued support!

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
