What is this k7 you’ve stumbled upon, 30 years late to the game?

Well... it’s all in the title! Make Synths Not War is a collaborative mixtape put together to raise funds for people from conflict-affected areas.  What’s the twist? All tracks were created from hardware and software synthesizers. From dusty analog synths, grooveboxes and vocoders, to flashy digital synths, the essence of this tape is in the oscillator.

All proceeds from this project go directly to the Luxembourg Red Cross helping those in need. A big thanks to all contributing artists for their musical donations, and thank you for joining the movement. 

The Luxembourg Red Cross has proposed that funds raised go to the Hariko project - An artistic project dedicated to young people

Hariko is a place for interaction, sharing and creation between artists and young people aged 12 to 26. The project is about getting young people to come and meet multitalented artists and musicians. Members can attend workshops in painting, graffiti, guitar, piano, singing, jewel creation and dance. The workshops, studios and common areas of the project are open from Tuesday to Saturday from 14:00 to 20:00. Hariko is a part of the Youth programme of the Luxembourg Red Cross.

This page wouldn't be complete without a F.A.Q section

What's Bonus Noise, and why are you doing this?

We are an independant record label, made in Luxembourg. We're always talking about how music can change the world, and this is one way we think we can help. We've organised this tape, but the true work comes from the artists who have contributed tracks. 

Where can I listen to the music?

You will only be able to listen to it by listening to the cassette tape or digital version from our store. This will also give you access to a play through of the cassette on a private youtube video (because yes we are aware, you probably don't have a cassette player at home). It will not be released on any other platforms as the participating artists complete ownership of their tracks. Many of these tracks are exclusive to this mixtape, so don't miss out ;)

I have a download code, how can I use it?

Go to our store page, you'll find the digital download of the mixtape. Just add your download code at checkout!

Where do you deliver?

Delivery costs apply on all orders based on the latest POST rates

Hey, I also like synths! Can I participate?

We're already thinking of a second edition. Reach out!
