Marshmello, Bassnectar, Alison Wonderland & More Speak Out After the Death of George Floyd
While the dance world is often criticized for being one of the politically involved genres, a number of digital producers have spoken out on Twitter in response to the death of George Floyd.
Floyd, a guy, was allegedly killed by suffocation when a Minnesota police officer kneeled on his throat. The incident has sparked nationwide protests because a video of this event surfaced online on Monday (May 24). That police officer,” Derek Chauvin, has been arrested today (May 29) about the count of third degree murder.

I feel like that has to be said consistently: I am a hip hop and house DJ, which means I earn a living playing with Black songs. That music and culture was made out of their injustices of Black people in America. For my Black sisters and brothers, I stand beside you.

I keep seeing people responding to #BlackLivesMatter with “all lives thing ” please realize that by saying that you’re completely dismissing the dreadful situation that’s occurring. When black lives issue THEN all lives issue. Please please PLEASE teach yourselves

SO MUCH RESPECT FOR THIS! A good reminder not to get diverted arguing over imitation topics [if ppl argue ‘all cops are bad’, its not about this ] that is about respect, solidarity & unity. Standing up for what’s appropriate. Against Racism & Injustice. Bonding in unity as One Human Race https://t.co/LBi25looZD

As a proud POC, I hope this month may be used to admit and recognize the conflicts of the Black community in the US. https://t.co/E6uGcdxsJL

I’ve been thinking because I’ve noticed and its horrifying. The treatment would have been different If this was a guy. Racism fuelled murder and it disgusts me white individuals are still so racist and keep getting away with shit like that https://t.co/NnZEkH2bV3
