NEW VIDEO: RBMA presents H∆SHTAG$ – Don’t Call It #AltRnB – Episode 1 (feat. Zodiac & Rochelle Jordan)

Ty Harper | Music,Video | Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

This gets kudos for even trying to approach R&B critically.

In this first episode of H∆SHTAG$, we take a look at the current renaissance of contemporary R&B in the “always-on” age, featuring former half of The Weeknd, Jeremy ‘Zodiac’ Rose, How To Dress Well, Miguel, Rochelle Jordan, KLSH, BadBadNotGood, and more. How has the Internet inspired and galvanized this new breed of artists? Have online communities and media been too quick to label genres and movements? What does the future hold for the many strains of the R&B genre?

H∆SHTAG$ is a new series of mini-documentaries from the Red Bull Music Academy, chronicling some of the most fascinating themes emerging from the web in recent times, from #cloudrap to #seapunk, #postdubstep to #advancedpop.
