In no other era could you dream of influencing your idols to the point where you are able to work with them for new generations. Grammy-winner Anderson .Paak and Zane Lowe (Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio Host and Creative Director) are doing just that, carving neoteric lanes as part of the latest breed of creative leaders getting lit and pulling rank out here in the next frontier.
“Why did there have to be a media room and an artist room? Why couldn’t there just be a creative room—why can’t broadcasting be creative?”
The very question that drove Lowe to rope .Paak in to having his own show—dubbed .Paak House Radio—on Apple Music's Beats 1 Radio Station. With a huge emphasis on giving artists the freedom to build whatever they want, the radio studio perfectly embodies the spirit and theme of our March issue: collaboration.
Watch the video above for a behind-the-scenes teaser of our cover shoot at Apple Music's Beats 1 Radio Studio in Los Angeles; a candid glimpse into the radio experience that is created in real time 24/7, while simultaneously live streamed over the world wide web.
