Upstate Mixtape is a compilation of musicians and artists hailing from the Capital Region of NY. This mixtape is part of antiracist grassroots fundraising efforts, spearheaded by Jammella Anderson. 100% of the proceeds of this compilation album will be redistributed back to the Black musicians and artists who contributed to it. We carefully selected the white musicians that were asked to be a part of this project as being in line with our values of antiracism and commitment to amplify Black voices.
Songs contributed here are anything from demos, to B-sides, to album loose ends to showcase the multifaceted musicians from the 518.
