For Azadi Record‘s second anniversary, they are taking the entire label on tour and bringing along some new faces that have joined the Azadi family. Prabh Deep, Seedhe Maut, Swadesi, Tienas, Siri and others will be joined by Srinagar’s Ahmer Javed, Surat-based hip-hop mainstay DJ Uri and the backbone of the Indian hip-hop scene, Sez On The Beat.
In addition, they are also hosting Rodney P and Skitz – the pioneering MC and producer duo from the United Kingdom who played a pivotal role in the development of the British hip-hop community. Who would be performing as special guests in each city.
Azadi Records is a Delhi-based independent record label. Established in 2017, the label seeks to provide a platform for South Asian artists to release forward-thinking, politically conscious music that critically engages with (and comments on) the pressing issues of our time. Their aim is not be underground, but to highlight pertinent stories that are often ignored by the mainstream. They call themselves the label of the culturally conscious. The creators of stories. Explorers of new sounds, new visuals and new mediums that initiate dialogue between different communities around the world.
