    Carl Craig: All Black Vinyl 2023

    If you’re a fan of music – and especially techno – you certainly know Carl Craig.

    Since day 1, the grammy-nominated DJ and producer has used his influence to tell the inspiring stories of Detroit’s illustrious music scene – and the black creators that made that scene so influential.

    One way he tells those stories is through his annual ‘All Black Vinyl’ project during which he selects and spotlights a record from a black artist for every day of February for Black History Month.

    Josh Taerk is a billboard charting singer/songwriter from Toronto. He’s released several albums including his latest full-length, Beautiful Tragedy, which has been streamed more than 150,000 times on Spotify. 

    He built a loyal following doing video livestreams on Twitch and last summer decided to add Blast Radio to the mix for fans that prefer to listen instead of watching (something we recommend all video streamers do). 

    We recently spoke with Taerk to learn more about him, his taste, his inspirations, and what he’s got going on. Read on to learn about the man singing the songs.

    Using QR Codes to Promote your Blast Radio Profile & Streams

    As a Blast Radio streamer you automatically get a unique URL specific to you – blastradio.com/YourUsername. 

    If someone has the app and clicks on it, they will be taken directly to your profile. If they don’t have the app, they will be taken to a web player specifically about you – and be encouraged to download the app and follow you. 

    The unique URL is a great tool for promotion. A good way to get more value out of the link is by turning it into a QR code. Read on for more info!
