In these confusing times of pain, fear, sadness and anger, Guerrilla Bizarre wanted to do their part in alleviating the sorrow felt by the people in Ukraine.
They reached out to their favourite artists in the underground scene to ask for contribution and tried to put together a meaningful effort to help with the situation.
“First Aid for Ukraine” is the result of this massive teamwork. You can get these 60+ tracks at the accessible price of 8 euros, or donate more if you have the possibility.
Of the money you pay, a small amount (around 15%) will be unavoidably withheld by Bandcamp; the rest will go entirely to the International Committee of the Red Cross, with weekly donations every Friday. Please check their social media pages to see how much they’ll be donating every week.
The Red Cross has been operating in the country since 2014 and is currently supporting relief operations in Ukraine’s warzones. Their cooperation with the local Red Cross Society is instrumental in lessening the pain caused by the invasion: they provide first aid on the field, help with evacuations and distribute essentials such as food, warm clothes, medicines and hygiene items; they train civilians for emergency situations and help in contacting relatives in other parts of the country.
This should have been a simple VA compilation, but now looks more like a mega pack because of the overwhelming response that they received. A mega pack of underground electronic music. Free, not bound by style or genre, and yet recognizably à la Guerilla Bizarre: you’ll come across minimal techno soundscapes, ambient experiments, spacy house grooves, razor-edged breaks and much more. But perhaps the most impressive contribution comes from Koloniari, who was able to send them his track “Control” from Kyiv, where he resides, despite the current situation.
What the world has witnessed in the last few days made us feel powerless. Spectators of a world that is violently unraveling in front of our eyes. But the truth is that, even if reality is indeed dire, we can find the strength to help out. We hope that this nightmare can end soon, please help in doing our part.

Tool Kit II: Luc Ringeisen
“In 2020, authorities and a part of society classified music and culture in general as “non-essential.” Paradoxically, the COVID-19 pandemic itself and the successive lockdowns imposed by each country have proven how crucial music is for most of us, our well-being, and overall inner peace — especially during these severe trials and extended periods of isolation.
Turn off your television and listen to the first trumpet notes of a Miles Davis album or the first syllables of Sade, and chances are your soul is instantly healed. In such moments we are also inspired, reformatted; because ultimately, we are what we listen to.
Let me share with you a bit of what’s going on in my lockdown playlists these days. Good listening, let’s be patient and keep the faith.” Luc
This is my “Break the Glass — In Case of Emergency” kit to you:
