Hello friends!

I want to share with you a project I’ve been working on for the last few weeks.  I felt that I needed to use my platform to push back against the actions and rhetoric of the new so-called administration.  This mixtape is just one small part of a larger social contribution I have vowed to make, until things are set right in the world.  This is by no means a complete, or comprehensive collection of resistance or protest songs.  This is just a few songs, speeches, and anecdotes that felt important and sentimental to me at this current point in our history. I want to keep the heat turned up on this movement in any way I can- whether thats tweeting my senators and congressmen, or supporting real, free, independent journalism outlets and newspapers online and sharing them widely, or sharing the music of the resistance.  I also want this to be a true representation of myself, excellent and thoughtful music, awareness of the current state of things, and preparation for things to come.

This mix is called ‘Resist’.  It spans many different eras and genres of music, but like not unlike myself, finds its root in hip hop.  Music itself, and especially hip hop, has always been a voice for resistance, social justice, awareness, and protest.

Please enjoy this mix! Please share it far and wide with anyone and everyone you wish to!  Please seek out and support projects like this one, and all movements related to resisting and protesting injustice and hatred in our world.  Its never too late to turn things around and keep on the path of positivity and peace!  This is just the beginning!

Take care,

Matt aka DJ Trayze
