Infam­ous hip hop group The Phar­cy­de have launched a new TV chan­nel ‘The Phar­cy­de TV’ (PHTV) aimed to cre­ate a glob­al net­work of like minded cre­at­ives. 

Bootie Brown says he star­ted the chan­nel ori­gin­ally to mar­ket their own music. He then goes on to say that “It’s been a chal­lenge to find com­pan­ies who do what they are sup­posed to do after pay­ing or prom­ised that they are com­mit­ted to your pro­ject,”

“At the same time through out our 25+ years I have met people who I feel are pas­sion­ate as myself in break­ing the cycle of mono­tony and would like to con­trib­ute another angle aside of the norm. I want to cre­ate a Glob­al net­work of like minded indi­vidu­als who will shake up the industry,” he said. 

The chan­nel so far fea­tures col­lect­ives around the world with video inter­views from Dutch music journ­al­ist Pay­ology, SYS Radio from Aus­trali­an music journ­al­ist Mag­gie Tra, Japan­ese R2 Records Radio show, ”Splen­did Radio” with Imani, Ta’Raach & Schmooche AND free online yoga classes with Kiira Kristine Yoga to name a few.

 PHTV will also work as a pay-on demand chan­nel “Flickss.” Allow­ing users to watch movies and doc­u­ment­ar­ies through the chan­nel at a price.
