#artistTRANSFORM is an idea collectively, that we can have a greater impact, and transform ourselves as well as others, as a collective of independent artists.
What began this summer as a project called #artistENGAGE, we set out to develop a short workshop series designed to spark collaboration, dialogue and action within the local community of independent artists. We suspected and knew that independent artists faced significant challenges in today’s music environment.
#artistTRANSFORM is the next step in revolution of independent artists. This project specifically, is the first collaboration between Spectrum City B-Side Radio and #MassivelyEpic.
“One of the biggest challenges of being an independent artist, always has been and still is today, promotion and distribution of releases.”
#artistTRANSFORM is an outlet for artists, djs, producers and musicians to get involved with a larger crew through collaboration and creation of content.
The idea will launch on both Spectrum City B-Side Radio and #MassivelyEpic Radio Shows, with each show featuring mix sets of artists, producers and DJs from across boarders and generations. As we gain support and funding, we will continue to grow the platform to expand beyond digital radio, into events, showcases and mobile.
The goal of this collaboration is to bridge the gap between the generations of independent hip hop artists and fans through discovery and education around the culture, heritage, technology and progression of the art form.
Spectrum City B-Side Radio and Massively Epic Radio are weekly digital streaming shows on RAPstation.com, the worlds loudest rap station, hosted by independent artists – Keith Shocklee, DJ Journey and Ravin Dave.
