On The Daring: Genesis Of The Flux
Dec 4, 2020
In the mid-1990s an arts renaissance took place in the U Street corridor of Washington, D.C., rising from the debris of decades of post-riot neglect after Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1968 assassination.

This new incarnation worked in the idioms of hip-hop, jazz, R&B, funk, soul, rock, reggae, drum-n-bass, house, and spoken word. And often, those genre lines melted into each other and disappeared as the scene was driven by collaboration as well as healthy one-upmanship.Genesis Of The Flux — The Daring Media Blog
