Seth Troxler says Tuskegee is a platform for ‘people of minority’. The American artist, who has become something of a spokesperson for the dance scene in recent years, made the statement during an interview published by Ibiza Voice last week.
Troxler, who hails from Detroit, began the project back in 2014 alongside long-time friends and Hispanic party-starters The Martinez Brothers, who we interviewed in October last year. The idea was to try and inspire young artists from diverse backgrounds to pursue their aspirations in the dance scene, and the concept has gone from strength to strength since then.
“The record label is inclusive for everyone: the Middle East, Turkey…all over the world. The idea is that we are all minorities, and we can all contribute creativity and break down these social walls,” Troxler explains in the recent article.
Tuskegee Music narrowly missed out on Best Breakthrough Label at this year’s DJ Mag Best of North America Awards, with the name referencing a small city in Alabama that has a significant story to tell in terms of black America. This includes a now-notorious clinical study that ran from 1932 to 1972, conducted by the U.S. Public Health Service, with the intention of observing the progression of untreated syphilis amongst 600 African-American men, rolled out under the false pretense of giving free healthcare to people with “bad blood”.
