Keyi Magazine will release a groundbreaking charity compilation on June 29, uniting a diverse array of local Berlin-based artists with an impressive list of international names.
Comprising 44 tracks, the album features a roster of artists across all genres that define contemporary club sounds, including Ellen Allien, Hadone, Amotik, Ancient Methods, Chloe Lula, Nite Fleit, Arnaud Rebotini, Tigerhead, Curses, Franz Scala and many more.
Curated meticulously by Keyi, the compilation is a testament to techno and its adjacent sounds and provides a remarkable auditory experience for connoisseurs of the genre.
From ethereal harmonies fusing Eastern and Western influences in Que Sakamoto & NT's ‘Murasaki’ to Lee Ann Roberts' captivating blend of acid melodies and excitement-inducing alarms in ‘Only Us’, this compilation offers an enigmatic fusion of sounds that defy categorisation.
Berlin Bunny’s ‘Cosmic Battle’ immerses you in a cosmic clash of pulsating frequencies in a chaotic, threatening banger while Ellen Allien's standout track ‘Send’ mesmerises with killer basslines, engaging percussion and enchanting synths.

Every penny raised through sales of the compilation will be donated to two charities; The White Helmets, who are known for their efforts in providing aid and assistance in conflict zones, as well as Germany's Welthungerhilfe organisation, which is dedicated to combating hunger and poverty worldwide.
“Through ‘Sonic Reflections’, we invite you to not only revel in the cutting-edge sounds of the underground but also to make a tangible impact on the lives of those in need,” expressed Keyi Magazine in a statement.
