The musicians will then need to upload their tracks onto their respective social media platforms with the correct tags. Red Bull Music and Tall Racks Records will then select the best artists. Successful artists will get an opportunity to go into the Red Bull Music Recording Studios in Cape Town where songs will be recorded culminating in complete tracks released to the public.
“A much-undervalued part of the music industry is collaboration, especially in the world of fresh and independent hip-hop artists,” Nasty C comments. “At the moment, our music culture in SA is becoming more and more open to sharing and collaborating and this is the culture the Lift As You Rise project looks to achieve. This is the era where budding artists need to catch up with the understanding that they must collaborate to take their gift one step further.”
Rowlene adds, “Collaboration is the biggest uplifting force driving music today. To young and upcoming artists looking to project their talents onto a bigger audience, the Lift As You Rise project is the powerful stepping stone.”
