Electronic Saviors 3 ~ Remission

Electronic Saviors: Industrial Music to Cure Cancer is a project that was born in 2008 when industrial scene promoter, musician and dj, Jim Semonik was diagnosed with a very deadly form of stage 2B cancer. Through an intense regiment of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery by top doctors, Jim beat the disease and created one of the most talked about projects in the current industrial scene.

Between ES Volume 1 released in 2010 and ES Volume 2 released in 2012, this project has raised $39,000.

Jim was declared cleared of cancer in September of 2013 and all the while was working on volume 3. More artists jumping on board to be a part of this cause brought the total of artists for the compilations to over 230. A 4 disc set and Premium Edition for Electronic Saviors Volume 3 was just released June 10th, 2014.

And now with your support, we celebrate the newest release as we watch the proceeds and donations continue to grow. The money raised through this project goes to great charities that continue to help other patients fight their battle with cancer.


A handful of local acts are featured on ES3, and some of them will be here to show their support. Come say hello!

Ego Likeness
Hopeful Machines
Bella Morte
The Rain Within
Spider Lilies
