Over three beautiful days in August, the battle cry was ‘don’t let the virus get you down’ as We Out Here Festival and Reform Radio showed everybody how it’s done, provided the online, underground contrast, powerful political platform and the shining stage for talks, djs, artists and screenings for all that’s good from Manchester to London and around the world too.

@djmagofficial celebrates it’s first, new print copy with ‘Dance music Is Black Music’ an issue with a 33 page cover section dedicated to fighting racism within their organisation and throughout the dance music industry and exploring the black experience across the spectrum of the music industry. I am in conversation with @anzieanz and we discuss our personal experiences across the generations. A long, important read written by Lauren Martin. . . . . . . . #djmag #laurenmartin #anz #djpaulette #print #publishing #magazine #racism #antiracism #blm #blacksisters #blacksisterhood #blackbrothersandsisters #blackbrothers #blackwomanmagic #coverfeature #longread #dancemusic #blackmusic
DJ Magazine celebrates it’s first, new print copy with ‘Dance Music Is Black Music’ an issue with a 33 page cover section that sets out their pledge dedicated to fighting racism within their organisation and throughout the dance music industry and to more fully and fairly exploring the black experience across the spectrum of the music industry. ANZ and I have an isolation conversation about our experiences across the generations.
It’s been an intense few weeks finding black people and people of colour landed squarely in the middle of another pandemic – racism. Something has to give. Something has to change. When conversation fails me, I turn to poetry. Here’s a poem I wrote earlier about some of my experiences – it’s not finished yet. I will continue to tweak until it’s right.
