What genres of music are appealing to Bahamian youth? Do we have an appreciation for Bahamian music and its evolution over the years? What types of music are young Bahamians performing and recording? Are these forms considered Bahamian and how do they fit into the genre we call “Bahamian music”?
We seek to alter the perception that young Bahamians seeking to enter the Bahamian music industry are not inclined to create what many consider the indigenous Bahamian sound. This programme provides an entertaining look into the Bahamian music industry through the lens of young Bahamians, while exhibiting other genres of music.
Hosted by Sloan “Miss Potential” Smith, P-Giovanni “PG-13” Armbrister, and Jonathan “Jonny T” Thompson; “The Mixdown” will primarily feature young Bahamian musicians to share their lives, their work and their perspective. It will be discussion balanced with music, Bahamian or otherwise. Occasionally, we will feature more seasoned Bahamian musicians. This programme is geared toward encouraging an appreciation for the evolution of Bahamian music, while at the same time providing an opportunity for young artists to contribute to the further growth and expansion of this industry.
