A fundraiser compilation has been released featuring more than 50 original tracks, raising money for survivors and families of those affected by the Hamas attack on Supernova Festival in Israel on October 7.

The two-part compilation, titled ‘#BringThemBack’, features over 35 tracks on each side ranging from trance to EDM and techno from Israeli producers such as Astrix, Red Axes, Kino Todo, and Vini Vici.

A total of 73 tracks feature, many of which are original works gifted to the compilation which will go toward aiding the families of those killed, and the survivors of Supernova Festival providing mental health care and critical aid.

The compilation is put together by Electronic Music Community (EMC), working alongside the Tel Aviv Foundation to provide support for the victims and correctly allocate the donations collected.

The attack took place on the site of the pystrance festival in South Israel on October 7, which was attended by 3,500 people.

Shots began at around 6:30AM on Saturday morning, with CNN reporting it began with an initial flurry of rockets before gunmen arrived in vehicles and opened fire on the attendees around 30 minutes later.

260 bodies were recovered from the site of the festival, while further attendees were thought to have been taken hostage.

Festival hosts Tribe Of Nova shared a statement after the attack, offering “sincere and heartfelt condolences” to those who have lost loved ones or been affected.

Funds from the compilation will go toward the non-profit organisation Nova Movement, which states its focus on “healing and reuniting the very painful fractures”, providing financial support to victims and their families, and rehabilitation including psychological treatment and professional accompaniment.

Nova Movement also looks to establish a treatment centre for victims and their families and provide accommodation for those who need it. Employees, suppliers, security guards, and staff at the festival will also be given aid.

“The dear families of those people who need financial, physical, mental, and emotional assistance, receive a direct and complete response to everything and matter that is within our reach and that we are able to give,” reads Nova Movement’s website.
