Here at Today’s Future Sound, all of our classes and sessions at schools, community, and juvenile justice settings have come to a grinding halt due to the Corona Virus/COV-19. However, since Sunday, TFS director Dr. Gann aka Phillipdrummond has been curating and organizing online beat cyphers via the web with beat makers and TFS family from around the world.
This evening, Saturday, March 21st at 7pm PST/10pm PST, join us for a live HQ multistream on our Facebook, Youtube, or you can check out the low-quality Instagram (low quality) live stream. If you want to participate and remix the samples/play your flips you can hit this Zoom link BUT YOU WILL NEED THE ZOOM APP FOR YOUR COMPUTER!
This is our attempt to connect beat makers, Hip Hop heads and communities across the globe, combat isolation, build community and share dope beats as well as the music of independent artists in during these troublesome times! We plan to continue these online beat cyphers, including plans for another #GlobalBeatCypher this upcoming week. If you want to donate to help us continue these efforts you can make a tax-deductible donation here. You can also purchase merch (we are still shipping internationally) including our brand new limited edition beat machine sticker pack ($20 for 15 stickers) via our todaysfuturesound.bigcartel.com digital storefront. You can also purchase our compilation album, A Sound Foundation, with 30+ exclusive tracks via our bandcamp (along with hundreds of other free beat tapes and albums to stream/download for free), as well as listening/streaming for free on our SoundCloud.
Hope you can join us, stay healthy and safe!
