  • Seth Troxler has curated a series of talks and DJ sets as part of Beatport's Black History Month programme. The programme launched yesterday, February 8th, with a brief conversation via Twitch between Troxler and Harvard University professor Dr. Cornel West on house and techno's roots in Black and Latino communities. Another longer conversation, this time featuring Troxler, Ron Trent and Tony Humphries, followed straight after. Still to come this month are conversations and DJ sets from the likes of Paul Johnson, Channel Tres and DJ Holographic. Here's the full schedule. As well as a professor of the Practice Of Public Philosophy at Harvard University, Dr. West is a writer, activist and editor. One of his monologues recently appeared on Brandon Lucas's house track "Got That Hope," which Troxler remixed. Watch both conversations, and click through for video streams of sets by Troxler, Humphries and Trent.
