New York-Based Black Artists You Should Support This Bandcamp Friday (And Always) | AdHoc Presents

Too often Black artists go unheard, unappreciated, and uncompensated. This Bandcamp Friday, we’ve rounded up a list of New York-based black artists you should support—today, and forever. Featuring Asoh Black., Dianna Lopez, Kemba, Ntu, Pom Pom Squad, Spencer., War Violet and more.

We’ve pulled together a genreless list of black musicians you should support as they navigate this hostile industry. Despite the fact that popular music today would not have been possible without Black art, Black artists have historically been short-changed by the music industry. Music is a notori...

While we are going silent on our socials tomorrow, we are doing so in order to speak out in our community. Our staff will be using the day to donate, organize, and protest. We recognize that we have work to do and that the work is never over. We must share resources, share money to funds that need them, and recognize the anger that BIPOC feel every day of every year, and do so in a way that amplifies black voices and experiences.

It’s not enough to be angry. It is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist. We must do the hard and uncomfortable but necessary work to recognize and criticize systemic racism and to check our privilege and our power. We must listen to, support, and amplify black voices; that’s the bare minimum.

We stand in solidarity with protestors and the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the countless others whose lives have been lost to white supremacist police brutality. Hold your communities accountable and show up for them in actionable ways.

We’ve compiled some resources we’ve found valuable and we urge you to start by reading through them and donating where possible, especially if you’re white. Keep your ear to the ground to get involved in local protests

Gaygirl Wrestle for Control on ‘Pleasurehead’ | AdHoc Presents

At times restrained and chaotic, London-based grunge band Gaygirl's debut EP 'Pleasurehead' is not just a meditation on the different ways control manifests in our lives, but also an exploration of both the excess and minimalism that rock has to offer.

On their debut EP, the London-based grunge band catalog all the different ways control manifests in our lives. The coronavirus pandemic has effectively shattered the illusion that we have some control over our lives—one minute we were all planning to go to shows or festivals, and the next we’re ...

On 'Gentle Grip,' funky bass lines and plucky synths guide listeners to the dancefloor—but it's Public Practice's lyrics about creativity, morality, and modernity that keep this disco-inspired debut album spinning.

y'all doing that Juliana theory ticket giveaway? yes+amen pls. kthnxbye
I was searching for artists that have an instinct for music to the point that every (I tend to call them) track comes out exactly right on the 1st attempt. (I know the misses, but inaudible to everyone). I've been making music using instinct only for about a year now (Reason since 1998). I listen to or choose loops and samples, then I hit 'record' and start making music (LIVE recording, no sequencers). Every attempt ends up being a release on soundcloud.com/maartenkraak . I'm the dream of any good DJ bcuz of my instinctual measure timing. I always know when the changes either in the music or DJ mixing without fail. The style of music does not matter to me, I just adhere to 8+8 or 16 measures per section (with vocals, 32 measures). I cannot explain how I do what I do. I just do what I feel. I made this hip-hop, techno mashup Sunday night and mouths drop: https://soundcloud.com/maartenkraak/play-with-me . 3 months ago I made an awesome reggae/dub track that appeals to 8 to 80 year olds. Give me a chance and listen, then contact me or point me to the right pplz. I need pplz to converse and collaborate with and inspire/push me. Ad-Hoc is me 100%
are y'all gonna do a best of 2017 post?
Hi, I'm trying to purchase tickets to the mewithoutyou show on 11/24 at Villian in NYC. Your website with ticketfly does not indicate that it is sold out, but the payment won't go through on various different cards. Any insight on this?
