Red Bull Music Academy has launched a weekly mini-documentary series entitled, H∆SHTAG$. The first episode in the series, entitled ‘Don’t Call It #Alt-R&B’, features interviews with Miguel, How To Dress Well (formerly one half of The Weeknd), Jeremy ‘Zodiac’ Rose, Rochelle Jordan, and BadBadNotGood.
The series looks at the ‘current renaissance of contemporary R&B’ in light of the current ‘always-on’ age and asks the questions — ‘what happens when the Internet comes of age’ and what happens to the generation of musicians and artists that have grown up with it. H∆SHTAG$ engages the viewer into a conversation that takes its topics from URL to IRL and all points around and in between.
Red Bull Music Academy as a whole has helped to shed light to some of the best music content in the world, and this series debut is definitely in line with that tradition. Check the video after the break and come back in one week for Episode 2.
