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.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world.
