Black Bandcamp: Crowd Sourced and Volunteer Run Music Discovery Tool

We’re big fans of independent online music retailer Bandcamp and we’re currently really excited about this new site and resource called Black Bandcamp, which has done an amazing job of crowd sourcing and centralizing listings and information on Black artists and producers as well as Black owned record labels who have a presence on Bandcamp. This excellent music discovery tool also allows you to filter your results by genre and geographic area. Visit here – https://www.blackbandcamp.info.

They summarize it as such:

A crowd-sourced list of Black artists on Bandcamp: This site aims to provide an easy way to filter and sort the 2000+ Black Producers / Artists / Labels for Bandcamp Day spreadsheet. The goal of the sheet is to support Black artists, producers and labels through their Bandcamp links. The data is a work-in-progress (non-exhaustive) and administered by a group of volunteers…” 

Here’s some of the great stuff we’ve found on Black Bandcamp over the last couple of weeks:

Shamir:

AKUA:

Jelani Sei:

Oceanator:

Auden:

Beverley Glenn-Copeland:

Danny Denial:

Lido Pimienta:

If these songs aren’t for you then you can dig in and check out 2000+ listings and you can submit your own recommendations here.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
