Shemspeed is an independent recording label and artists' promotional agency devoted to world Jewish music. Shemspeed works with cross-over artists with strong positive and unifying messages. Shemspeed promotes over 15 dynamic Jewish artists, representing a wide range of music genres including Hip-Hop, Reggae, and Rock. These artists include, but are not limited to, Y-Love (revolutionary Jewish Hip-Hop), Diwon (Yemenite / Sephardic Hip-Hop, Israeli Music, and more), DeScribe (Soul Awakening Hip-Hop, R & B, Soul), Electro Morocco (Israeli Rock, Dance Music), and Eprhyme (Kabbalistic Hip-Hop, Party Music). Shemspeed is the brainchild of the Founder/Director Erez Safar, an American-Israeli DJ/Producer extraordinaire (his musical persona is Diwon). His vision of an entrepreneurial venture devoted to Jewish music with a strong educational and social message has evolved into Shemspeed, a company becoming synonymous with unifying people through culture and education, celebrating diversity and common ground.
As a Jewish social entrepreneurial venture, our mission extends far beyond selling CDs and booking concerts. Shemspeed combines passionate performances by cutting-edge musicians with powerful, thought-provoking, innovative programming. Shemspeed's repertoire of programs is always evolving. Current offerings include the 40 Days and 40 Nights College Tour, Jewish High School Music Project, The Keffiyeh Project, and our longest running program -- the Sephardic Music Festival. By way of this work, we are also attempting to put forth a public Jewish face to multi-cultural, inter-faith, creative, and collaborative bridge-building.
