Our vision for BBG.tv is to showcase women & gender-expansive people of color in the Beats By Girlz community, as well as empower viewers by displaying how people like them are using music, production, and technology to live and work. For the second season, Beats by Girlz wanted to create a series of videos to highlight producers and artists in NYC. We interviewed 5 female and gender-expansive producers on their experiences, challenges and inspirations in creating music, and each artist led 2 tutorials on techniques they use in their music making. The series is sponsored by Paramount.
