45s and 40s was created by Hensley Carrasco after he wanted to create a new outlet for music. The name is inspired by 45s (the name given to records for their 45 rounds per minute [rpms]) and by 40 oz beers. The 45s in the name pertains to the idea of music, where a 45 can and should contain any form of music in any genre. The 40 aspect of the name comes from the influence the Hip-hop culture has had on the development of music. Though it didn’t contribute to every genre, it is evident that the culture helped form variations of music and has affected them in a multitude of ways. The site is ever-growing and is hoping to find success not only locally, but nationally. If you want to know who’s a part of it, you can meet the team.
Here is a nice chart on what you should know about the site.
