Electronic music is a genre founded and spearheaded by boundary-pushing POC and LGBTQ+ artists that deserve recognition. To put these musicians in the spotlight, EDM mainstays Diplo and Dillon Francis recently curated playlists overflowing with exceptional music from the likes of Troyboi, 12th Planet, G-Buck, and many more black innovators.
Titled Electronic Music: Black to the Future, Diplo’s new playlist features, “Dance and club music celebrating Black American artists.” Dillon Francis’ official Spotify playlist Dillon Francis’ Magical Playlist has been updated to predominately feature music from black artists.
