Internet Radio Station Showcases Atlanta Artists

I realized that Atlanta needed someone to represent its fast growing multi-genre music scene

Georgia is no stranger to a thriving independent music scene with bands such as, R.E.M, the B-52's, and Collective Soul. However, little has been heard from Atlanta – until now. BreakThru Radio (BTR) has named Atlanta the music scene to watch and will present DJ L’s special “In the Mix” Atlanta-only show. The show will air this week from June 19th – June 25th.

Georgia's own DJ L has been showcasing Atlanta artists throughout the year on her weekly Thursday show and has been instrumental in giving a voice to indie artists in the area. “I realized that Atlanta needed someone to represent its fast growing multi-genre music scene,” said DJ L. “There is so much rich music here such as the technical beauty of Dropsonic, the fantastic, sing-along rock of Modern Skirts, and the funky beats of multi-ethnic hip-hop group, Collective Efforts. The strength of this music scene is that it isn’t limited to one genre as all genres of music are represented by Atlanta artists.”
