We’re huge music fans at Adafruit. We’ve been sharing music for years, whether it’s our in-house music from Bartlebeats and Ecken or the artists we interview in our MusicMakers interview series. We love to celebrate creators and makers of all kinds.
We’re so happy that Adafruit have been selected as a music curator by Brooklyn’s Hype Machine, one of the best new music resources in the world. You can follow our profile feed and see what music we’re sharing and enjoying. Recently we’ve been interviewing artists like Frankie Cosmos, Jeffrey Lewis, Haiku Salut, Say Sue Me and lots more. You can read all of those @ #MusicMakers.
If you’d like to learn a little more about Hype Machine, here they are in their own words:
Tracks being favorited the most by the Hype Machine community start to chart on our Popular page. We also keep tabs on the most-posted artists of the week and popular music videos, so you don’t miss out on any good stuff.
Hype Machine was built in a college dorm room, and continues today as an independent company based in Brooklyn, NY. This is our 12th year on the web.
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
