Black Friday may conjure images of people stampeding at a Wal-Mart – but it’s also turned into a boon for independent labels on Bandcamp. Use these codes to boost your collection and support artists.
This started as part of this year’s Black Friday sale round-up, but it’s growing, so let’s keep a running tally.
So far we have a ton of great underground techno labels – left-field and different-but-danceable goodness. But I’d like to add some more experimental additions, if you’ve got them.
I can meanwhile endorse all these labels; they’re putting out terrific stuff.

Plus, not Black Friday sales, but worth mentioning:
Amsterdam’s wonderful Moving Furniture Records has a crowdfunding sale – which also happens to be a great way to get some lovely physical stuff. (That’s the one non-Bandcamp link here, but they’re also a Bandcamp label!)
place : the netherlands is an absolutely killer compilation, benefiting Open Closet LGBT Netherlands and their work on behalf of queer asylum seekers.
Ovum has released a 25-year anniversary compilation with 25 essential tracks. Pay whatever you like, and you benefit ” Philly Pops – an EITC-Certified Program that enhances music education for approximately 2,500 students in the School District of Philadelphia by embedding Philly POPS Teaching Artists in schools to coach and mentor students.”:
There’s also a two-part compilation for people who lost their vision during the recent riots in Chile – hope to follow up more on this soon:
Thanks to Chris Kronfeld on the Bandcamp Techno Facebook group for a lot of these tips!
