Black electronic musicians have been pushing for years to join the music industry as full-time musicians.
In an interview with The Guardian, DJ/producer Zedd, who is also known for his work as the lead vocalist of the electronic band M83, revealed his intention to form a full-scale music label and start his own music label.
He explained: “I’m a musician, I’m an artist, and I want to be able to make music for myself and make music that’s meaningful for myself, and then make money for my family.
That’s how I’m going to make my money.
And this is just another way for people to make their voices heard.” “
It’s hard, I’ve had so much to put in to this thing and I think there’s a lot of people out there who are working really hard and aren’t getting anywhere.
And this is just another way for people to make their voices heard.”
The singer also added: “This is something that I really want to do, it’s not something that just happens in the world of music.”
His new label will feature his own songs on it and is expected to launch in the summer of 2019.
He said: “My idea is to create a label that’s independent of the mainstream, independent of what’s going on in the music world, independent from the mainstream music industry, and that’s how it’s going to work.”
The UK-based producer and DJ, who was born in London, said he would also focus on building his own label.
The band has released five albums, including the self-titled debut, and has sold over 3 million albums worldwide.
He added: I think a lot people have been trying to get into the music business for a while, and there are a lot more artists making a living off of their music than ever before.
I feel like the music has been so neglected, and it feels like no one is really looking after it and giving it to people.”
