Future x Sounds 2020 Virtual Sessions with Black Milk

Black Milk joined Quelle Chris and Aaron Abernathy on a live stream for Future x Sounds and performed a dope beat set which you can watch here.

Back in June, I had the pleasure of watching Future x Sounds 2020 Virtual Sessions, a live stream featuring Black Milk, Aaron Abernathy, and Quelle Chris. The trio came together to create a track called ‘Maybe’ and the stream featured Quelle Chris and Aaron Abernathy discussing the track and their feelings about Black Lives Matter.

At the end, Black Milk played an exclusive beat set showcasing old and new beats with added instrumentation and percussion. It was a welcome relief from all the violence and atrocities at the time (and they still continue); a chance to find solace in Blackness and creativity.
