David This Week in Tumblr: contributions, competitions and cookies

Welcome back! Here’s some of the things that went on at the SoundCloud Tumblr blog:

After the catastrophe that shook Japan two weeks ago, SoundClouders have been helping and paying recognition to Japan in many ways so we highlighted several of them:

  • Over 20 SoundCloud users collectively produced an album called Rising Japan. All proceeds will go to Shelter Box, an organization helping the worst affected areas in Japan. Purchase their compilation HERE with all proceeds going to Japan Red Cross.
  • Nihon Kizuna, a compilation spanning 40+ tracks featuring contributions from Hyperdub, Ninja Tune, One-Handed Music, All City and more. For more info go HERE.
