Rob launched Bold As Love Magazine in 2007 as a platform that highlights the creators and curators of progressive, left-of-center global black culture. It began with a strong focus on music–black rock, afropunk and black alternative sounds–but has evolved to cover a broad range of progressive cultural production including film, visual arts, theater and literature.
In 2009, the site released its first compilation via Amazon.com–Boldaslove.us presents Fire In The Dark. The free (in the States) album has been downloaded over 26,000 times and counting. Then in 2010, with the help of Qool DJ Marv and The Mighty G-Man, we released The Getaway, a summer mixtape. Both mixtapes are available here.
