Last week I sat down and did an interview with luupy, a budding new artist out of Austin, Texas. He is quickly making waves in the electronic music scene with aggressive and emotional basslines and a devil may care attitude. A few of our writers have been talking behind the scenes about his sound and the unique music that he has been releasing so I jumped at the chance to interview him. In this interview we talk a bit about how he got into electronic production, his influences for his bass heavy music, and his aversion to Nazis. We cover more »

It was sort of hollow sounding, with less variations, and just shy of a club beat that an opener may play. Though the original from Pavlo could have had a lot more with done with it in my opinion, this remix does just that. INF1N1TE and Konus take the song, completely flip it and give it several more layers. The generic aspect of it is completely more »

If you have not yet got any Flu in your life, it’s time to get exposed.. For years now, as an emcee and producer, Melbourne’s Flu (AKA Fluent Form) has put out a barrage of sonic treasures.
