SILENCE = DEATH (A MIX INSPIRED BY KEITH HARING'S WORK) FOR RED BULL ELEKTROPEDIA

SILENCE = DEATH (A MIX INSPIRED BY KEITH HARING'S WORK) FOR RED BULL ELEKTROPEDIA

Chart positions

This show was 5th in the global hip-hop/rap chart and 5th in the global pop chart.

It is undeniable that Keith Haring was seen as an artist who was too far ahead of its time, but I found inspiration in Keith as an artist who was known for bringing the gallery art to the streets, and a social activist campaigning against social injustice and racism, nuclear disarmament and AIDS. I got into Keith Haring’s art through hip hop at an early age, I remember seeing rappers on Yo! MTV Raps wearing hoodies with Keith’s artwork and I was intrigued.
Music was also part of his art, lots of paintings were related to music and he was a huge fan of music in general with a very wide range. Reggae, ska, punk, rap, he was a huge fan of the Grateful Dead and was heavily into Larry Levan’s Paradise Garage as well with eventually some of his art being exposed in the club. This mix was inspired by hours of footage on Keith Haring’s work and a specific sound of the 80s; it also features some of his friends or artists he has worked with like Grace Jones, Madonna or David Bowie.
