HARD returned to NYC (and LA) this past weekend to bring us a bangin’ showcase of Wolfgang Gartner, Proxy, L-Vis 1990 and Popeska at Terminal 5. Already a huge fan of HARD events, I jumped at the chance to see this power lineup and to finally get a glimpse of Wolf’s awesome stage production that I kept hearing about from his Love & War tour.

For our dear readers who’ve seen the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy last week, those who’ve suffered from it, who knew a loved one who got hit from it, or those who are simply willing to give a lending hand to those in need, we have good news for you. Our friends at Symbols Recordings and the homie Udachi have each put together their own compilations of music from their friends, with every single penny of the music sales going towards relief to those who’ve suffered major losses caused by the storm. We know Udachi’s home of Staten Island got hit pretty hard, let’s help them out shall we? A truly genius move from both parties, what better way to gather a bunch of cool exclusive tunes than to by donating a small chunk of change to people who may have lost their homes or other major financial losses due to a rampaging act of nature.

Each of these compilations contains a ton of unreleased music from both familiar and new names, and honestly the entire compliations cost less than a normal EP on iTunes or Beatport. Pretty awesome, right? You can, of course, choose to donate whatever amount you please in order to receive the music, but a minimum donation of $5 is all you really need.

You can check the tracklists of both compilations after the jump, Gotta Dance Dirty asks you to please do a small part to help those who are in need. All in the name of good music!
