LOUD Fall Mix

Mash up by yours truly!

I’m not a DJ by trade but for LOUD I’ll make anything happen 😜.

This is the first of many LOUD mixes that will come out every couple of months. The mixes will be curated by various LOUD affiliated DJ’s. 

The mixes are open to all music. LOUD has a preference toward music from (in order of priority) Black, Women-identifying, POC, Queer artists but ultimately the songs featured are up to the DJ. 

Think of @ONYXisLOUD as a radio station #ONYXLOUDRadio, where you discover dope emerging artists in LOUD Mixes. Eventually we’ll also be featuring content from LOUD artist picked from LOUD’s Artist Suite (coming in 2018).

THEY WON'T TAKE ME OUT MY ELEMENT.

THEY WON'T TAKE ME OUT MY ELEMENT.

School assignment for time based media course. "Select an artwork presented in class, or approved by the teacher, or select your own artwork. Referencing our foundational readings (Benjamin and McLuhan), discuss how that artwork's medium or mode of production affects our experience of the piece." I had fun with it decided to look at Kendrick's newly released music video for ELEMENT. This paper made me uncover some interesting themes in the song, I think I'm on to something 🤔

Happy Birthday LOUD! learning from Ottawa to build in Toronto

Following my strategical failure in Ottawa where I put far too much faith in incubator programs even after I accounted for anti-blackness I'm switching my approach for LOUD in Toronto. I'm no longer asking for funding. I'm hitting the ground and going straight to the people LOUD was made for. This is an update for folks interested in the project so please hit me up and share your feedback!
