Negrotronix: In Search of the Black Hipster

by Rome

This is what it is people…Negrotronix: In Search of the Black Hipster is a project that I’ve wanted to create for the past 8 months. This essence of the project is a musical complilation with music collected from black artist that push the boundaries of hip hop, r&b, soul, etc. Or as Jay Z would say “some other sh-t”.

People who read this site faithfully (or those who are similar to myself and have exqusite taste) I am asking for your suggestions, mp3s, vinyl recommendations, whatever it may be to put this project together. So far I have everything from Sa-Ra to Spank Rock to Aloe Blacc and tons of other artists on deck, but hey you can never have enough to pick from and other people can always put you onto something new.

Get at me people and lets make this happen!!!

Stone can I get a Couch Sessions co-sign?

  • Miss Hipstah

    Miss Hipstah gives her big ups to the project.

    Have always been a fan.

  • Stone

    Check out Kudu, Trackademics, The Carps, and the Afropunk message board. Also look into classic Detroit techno and Felix Da Housecat. I got some other ish I can give you. We’ll talk on this.

  • oliveoil

    green velvet, detroit grand pubahs, ebony bones, ck kidtronix, Pheonix & the Shadow

    But why associate alternative with hipsterism though?

  • J_Biz

    There’s already a list like 30+ artists strong on the Afropunk message board, as an earlier poster said.

    I’d like to add Apollo Heights, Lansing Dreiden, Roughstars, The Bellrays, Imani Coppola, Lindsay and Language (Negroclash!) , The Dears….the movement is on, I guess.

    i got some music for ya on the way….cutting edge stuff…

  • ben

    yeah sa-ra sucks! i read a review/promo for their stuff claiming that “they simply exist on the next level” what a load of crap: if the next level are beats that most people can make using the given fruity loops library and a microkorg…
    no one does anything new and then they act like they are a genre’s savior
    pisses me off
