Bushwick Daily began life as a photo inspired blog based in Bushwick, Brooklyn, NY. It soon developed into a popular website incorporating a number of writers who contribute items ranging from opinion pieces, to artist and local fashionista reviews.
It has since branched out even further and introduced a radio station using Mixlr. In an interview with The L Magazine, Bushwick Daily’s Katarina Hybenova spoke about how this idea came about;
“When visiting new media artist Man Barlett’s studio, he told me about an amazing online platform for broadcasting, mixlr.com. I called jojo SOUL, who is a Bushwick-based DJ and contributor to Bushwick Daily. He got so excited that we scrapped the concept of mixtapes he was creating for Bushwick Daily using Soundcloud, and we replaced it with real deal live broadcasting. For the moment jojo SOUL—and his buddies RG and Nipsy, from Brothers From Another—are broadcasting from jojo’s studio every Saturday from noon to 2pm. We are preparing live broadcasting in collaboration with Small Black Door gallery, and we are thinking about broadcasting Bushwick concerts and live DJ sets. Mixlr.com gives us endless possibilities, and we have tons of ideas and an audience hungry for new stuff.
