Our thoughts go out to Puerto Rico during this difficult time.

Representing NYC and Downtown Electric



Clocktower's Jake Nussbaum profiles Representing NYC, an organization which finds outlets for underrepresented musicians and bands around the city. Founded by Sam Hillmer in 2007, Representing NYC connects artists to record labels and producers, locates settings for live performances, and helps generate publicity through a variety of media. Hillmer has worked with The Fly Girlz, 9/11 Thesaurus, Zulu P, Marley G, and Downtown Electric, who visit the studio and discuss cuts from their latest mixtape Never Give Up, recorded at Issue Project Room. Downtown Electric is a group of 7 musicians who met in downtown Brooklyn. Their mixtape Never Give Up was released in December 2014, and features a percussion-heavy, hypnotic sound, with production from Alpdog and Diamond Terrifier (Sam Hillmer). They are supported in this interview by Kyle Farrell and Taryn Harris.
