Black Lives: How To Self Educate & Support

Prime Loops is a Black and Asian run business.

We believe in peace, not chaos.

Music from black communities has shaped our lives. Hip Hop, Soul, Reggae, R&B, Dancehall, Dub, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Drum & Bass, Dubstep, UK Grime, Garage, the list goes on.

Commercial music is dominated by genres from black communities and we owe our careers to these black pioneers.

Prime Loops is a truly multi-ethnicity, predominantly Black and Asian company. A rarity in the music industry. We are proud of and celebrate, our diversity. We want to offer our support to the black community.

Join us in putting our egos aside, engaging our ears, opening our hearts, and gaining knowledge.

We’ve compiled a list of resources where you can offer your support, educate yourself, get involved, donate, sign petitions and more.

We are also operating a number of fundraising campaigns for carefully selected local black justice/diverse music charities in London, and making donations of sales.
