MORE THAN A RECORD LABEL
Founded in 2016 by Hip Hop artist Blxck Cxsper, Trans Trenderz is a record label and production house dedicated to uplifting trans voices in the music industry.
It all began with a mixtape, the world's first to be entirely written, produced and engineered by trans people. Produced and curated by Blxck Cxsper, the mixtape featured 14 Trans artists from different backgrounds. The feeling at the release party was unlike anything Cxsper had experienced before.
“You could feel how excited people were to finally see Trans folks on stage. It didn't feel like a show, more like a family reunion,” Blxck Cxsper explains. “There was no hierarchy between the artist and the audience, everybody was contributing to the love in that room in their own way.”
Wanting to continue to provide that space for themselves and other like-minded artists, Trans Trenderz officially evolved into a record label, signing Transgender and gender non-conforming acts.
