Adafruit is run by makers and creators. Musicians, photographers, engineers, videographers, coders, writers and more, we love DIY of all kinds. We think that our in-house music from Bartlebeats and Noe Ruiz is a big part of what makes Adafruit’s daily videos so much fun to watch, we think this so much that we released his debut album, Frequency, on gorgeous pink vinyl. We also worked with Infinity Shred on a limited edition blue vinyl pressing of their Long Distance LP, completed with an exclusive artist curated datadealer synth kit. We love music and we love sharing it.
We’re excited to share even more music from the Adafruit family with you, to help introduce more makers and creators into our community and to test out some new sounds and ideas on all of you.
Be sure to subscribe as we’ll be adding more and more audio content of our own, as well as sharing some of our own favourites from the wide and wonderful Soundcloud community.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
