In episode one of H∆SHTAG$, we take a look at the current renaissance of contemporary R&B.
Former member of The Weeknd, Jeremy 'Zodiac' Rose, joins How To Dress Well, Miguel, Rochelle Jordan, KLSH, BadBadNotGood and more in exploring how the internet has galvanized a new breed of independent R&B musicians.
Some of the questions pondered include: have online communities and the media been too quick to label genres and movements? What does the future hold for the many strains of the R&B genre?
H∆SHTAG$ is a new series of mini-documentaries from the Red Bull Music Academy, chronicling some of the most fascinating themes to emerge from the web in recent times, from #cloudrap to #seapunk, #postdubstep to #advancedpop.
