Music curation website Watch the Hype has announced that they will be showcasing a week-long takeover by artists who will be showcasing their favorite music from artists of color.
On the week-long project, they note-
During this week we will support race equality by recognising and sharing the importance of black music in shaping electronic dance music today (both in terms of origins and current talent) through the eyes and ears of some of our favourite artists within the scene right now. Each day during this week, we will showcase an artist’s selection of four tracks that speak strongly and positively to them and us about the importance of black music in the scene, and give them the opportunity to share some insight into each of these tracks.
The artists confirmed taking part are:
- Fabio & Grooverider
- Matthew Herbert
- Mr. G
- Auntie Flo
- Monika Kruse
- Hieroglyphic Being
The project will begin on February 27th. More information about the project can be found here.
