Interview \\ IG Culture: Selectors Assemble are the next generation waiting in the wing.
Selectors Assemble are tired of constraints. IG Culture—pioneer of the Broken Beat movement—fuses sounds and genres from London to Jamaica with the collective, liberating music and minds.
Although the Selectors are drawing on old school influences rooted in the early 2000s, what’s produced by the collective is nothing but fresh innovation. From 90s pioneers like IG Culture to the emerging NameBrandSound, this group of diverse DJs and producers are rewriting musical history. With each show they curate and EP that they drop, the collective are resurrecting styles and genres that deserve wider attention.
We spoke to IG Culture about the Selectors, who’s on his sonic radar, and NYC African Bruk music.
