With Bandcamp waiving their revenue fee for the next 24 hours to help artists through the COVID-19 crisis, here's five releases you should definitely buy.
Earlier this week, Bandcamp announced they were waiving their revenue fee for 24 hours in an effort to put as much money as possible back into their artists' pockets. It's a show of support for an industry crippled by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Obviously given how incredible Bandcamp is, there's a lot to choose from if you want to help get behind the cause. So, with that in mind, we've crunched the numbers and narrowed it down to four incredible Aussie dance releases we think are worth you parting with your hard earned coins for.
Here are some of our favs:
Logic1000- Love Goes / My Women
Vocal house queen Logic1000 does it again. She chops up a Janet Jackson classic and a Don Toliver Edit co-produced by Cop Envy.

S.C.D.D. Hazmat Team- Steel City Trance Discs
The SCDD crew have put their brains together to launch a new EP Steel City Trance Discs. The debut release from the team behind some of the best underground dance music is nothing short of filth. This EP will induce a headache 10x the size of any pesky old virus.
Andy Garvey- Complex Clarity EP
Cop the title track from Sydney based underground dance go getter Andy Garvey. The track is a wobbly reminder why Garvey shouldn’t be considered anything less than a don. The whole EP is a treat, so don’t be afraid to pre-order the vinyl now!
Various Artists- Driva
Wowee. Star studded lineup on this VA doing incredible work. The tape raises funds for the Karada House Covid-19 Relief Fund. The Karada House Covid-19 Relief Fund is an emergency relief fund for people of the LGBTQIA+ community & womxn living in Berlin, Germany who are affected by the outbreak and shutdown caused by Covid-19. Featuring Nite Fleit, Jennifer Loveless, Roza Terenzi and Jensen Interceptor. Cop the EP and find out more info here:
Sleep D - Smoke Haze
Sleep D doing what they do best. Hands up, eyes closed (even in your bedroom on your own). Feel it all.
