Red Bull Music Academy launches a new six-part video series today named “HASHTAGS” – it’s a series chronicling the inter-relationship between the internet and music.
The video above is an extended outtake from the first episode which looks at at the renaissance of contemporary R&B and some of its key players to raise questions regarding genres in the “always-on” age. How has the Internet inspired and galvanised this new breed of artists? Have online communities and media been too quick to label genres and movements? What does the future hold for the many strains of R&B? How To Dress Well, Jeremy ‘Zodiac’ Rose, Miguel, Rochelle Jordan, BadBadNotGood and more weigh-in on the topic.
