London based imprint 51-53 will drop its second release on Friday 11th December - a two track EP entitled ‘Fela’s Groove’ from the label’s founder, Blankson.
Under the moniker Blankson, Fab Goualin channels the late Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti in his debut 12” pressing.
Speaking about the EP, Blankson said: “2020 has been an important year for Black progression, black heritage and the Black struggle, so this EP was made in the same spirit of protest and perseverance that Fela made his music, which is now more important than ever.“
Bandcamp has launched Live, a new streaming platform for artists to stream ticketed events and shows. The new service lets users and artists charge any price for their streams, and Bandcamp will take 10% of the ticket price, which they’re waiving until March 31st 2021.
Fans of an artist are automatically notified when an event is added to their page, and Bandcamp will also display any merch in your Bandcamp shop throughout the broadcast. There’s live chat for fans to communicate. There's no word yet on takedowns or copyright issues for DJ sets.
