We are pleased to announce the birth of our new non profit project – Be Interactive! This will combine charity initiatives, community-enrichment programs, and all sorts of creative campaigns designed to promote engagement, inspire activism, and encourage people to get involved with their communities, and give back to the people around them. We will of course continue to donate one dollar per ticket to each and any Bassnectar event, but we are now launching this entirely independent arm of the team: dedicated and devoted to the service of others.
Today we are announcing the first fundraiser event for Be Interactive in San Francisco on Saturday, September 29th.
Bassnectar, The Glitch Mob, Dead Prez, Ninth Child, Zion i, Ashel SeaSunz, and Xiutezcatl Martinez are all gathering to throw down in support of this consciousness-raising cause: with a special focus on the upcoming elections and how to promote voter fairness and justice. 100% of proceeds go to charity, and we are aiming to raise $100,000 for Be Interactive campaigns & initiatives.
With hard-hitting beats, politically aware rhymes, deft lyricism and strong song concepts, dead prez emerged in 2000 as one of rap’s most politically strident outfits.and M-1’s music provided a voice for the voiceless, a sobering look at the global power structure that was crippling billions of people internationally and millions of Americans domestically. The duo’s first two studio albums, 2000’s Lets Get Free and 2004’s RBG: Revolutionary But Gangsta, were accompanied by four acclaimed Turn Off The Radio mixtapes and solo albums.
NINTH CHILD is the paradoxical production alias of Los Angeles based performing artist, Natalia Benson. Pulling from the etheric as well as her love of underground bass – NINTH CHILD is as much a visual project as it is a musical one making her self produced visual content and music videos a keystone of her self expression via NC.
NINTH CHILD has played Coachella for the Do Lab, Lightning in a Bottle Festival, Bassnectar’s Basslantic City, Control Avalon (LA), the iconic El Rey Theatre and headlined Incendia Fire in the Sky Festival in Atlanta, GA.
In 2017, NINTH CHILD coined her uniquely synergized DJ Sets THE IX SHOW- fusing an emotive playing style, original productions, live vocals and an all original cinematic visual show.
She has received accolades from Earmilk, YourEDM.com, Beautiful Buzzz, The DJ List, NestHQ, FuseTV, The Daily Beat, SensibleReason.com & Electrify Magazine (NY) and has received artist support from the likes of Bassnectar, Alison Wonderland, The Glitch Mob, TastyTreat, Madeaux, Hex Cougar, Dimond Saints, SteLouse, Vaski, Strange Club and the DoLab.
Since the release of the debut album, Mind Over Matter in 2000, Zion I has risen up the ranks of independent hip-hop to solidify their standing as one of the most prolific conscious rap groups of the past 2 decades. Boasting a catalog that consists of over two-dozen albums, EPs, mixtapes and collaborations, Zion I (currently consisting solely of MC/producer Zumbi) continues to create inspired music influenced by social & political woes, personal challenges & triumphs as well as family, spirituality and a raw perspective on the world at large.
Cited by A.V. Club as “remarkable”, Zumbi continues to showcase his talents as a unique, diverse and skilled MC while maintaining his place as one of the most recognizable voices in Hip-Hop.
The latest release, The Labyrinth was cited by PopMatters as “a timely new album of politically engaged hip-hop”. Fueled by his own personal losses as well as the current political and social climate of the world-at-large, Zumbi has created a record that, as the Huffington Post put it; “is as heartfelt as it is badass”.
With an 11th studio album on the horizon, Zion I continues to make music that while left-of-center is still relevant, fresh and exciting as ever. As Okayplayer put it; “At the end of the day, Zion I’s strength lies in the same areas where many artists falter – evolving without abandoning tried and tested methods.”
