Bernie Sanders has enjoyed strong support from musicians since the start of his candidacy, attracting praise from Killer Mike, Lil B, Steve Earle, Michael Stipe, Diplo, Steve Aoki, and more. Additional members of the dance community joined the cause this week, as Bassnectar, the Martin Brothers, Cobra Starship, and others contributed original music to a compilation titled #RaveForBernie.
The collection was curated by “die-hard Berner” Tommie Sunshine. “This compilation is important to me for two reasons,” Sunshine noted in a press release. “One is to rally support around a man who is trying to change our world for the better. Two is simply to show that electronic music artists can galvanize around a cause and change the conversation within our scene. Each artist involved here is passionate about Bernie and isn’t afraid to be vocal about it. I believe this is important because California has the chance to show the world that we want real change. Enjoy this music and please vote on June 7th.”
