A list of over 1,300 black artists and black owned labels has been compiled into a list that is making the rounds today with Bandcamp links for people to support. Today, Bandcamp is waiving their fee today on all releases, which means 100% of all sale proceeds will go to the artists and labels. In the wake of the police killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Dion Johnson, and an unconscionable number of other Black people in this country, it is time for this to happen. Electronic music owes everything to the struggle of black cultural figures and creators, so it is time to pay them back in a very small way. In addition to that, many artists and labels are giving some or all proceeds from their music to charities to benefit the fight against racial injustice and police brutality.
You can check out the list here that includes music from all over the world with experimental club music, afrobeats, rock, ambient, disco, hip-hop, soul, jazz and much more
Follow Bandcamp’s Twitter also today. They are retweeting lots of labels and artists who are donating proceeds to charity.
