Diplo shares in a post:
A lot of electronic music fans don’t recognize how much Black Americans have contributed to dance music (in addition to inventing disco, house, techno, most genres of music if you do your research). I think a lot of the streaming services can do more but I can do this right now. I got together with some friends and we made this is a living playlist on both Spotify and Apple Music. you can find the link in my bio. so please hit me with any suggestions or artists to add.
Dillon Francis also updated his Magical Playlist on Spotify to include more diversity.
