    In post-pandemic world, I hoped for things to become better in the techno sphere, as I believed people would finally appreciate what we’ve lost for years in the isolation.

    A Swedish band fusing jazz, hip-hop, rave and tons of gonzo that ventures in the sea of new-coming post-punk acts. The vocal Sebastian is a very charismatic and on-point antihero that recites his abstractly dark hedonistic lyrics, being the main groove output while the band is fusing these dance music-based beats with majestic diversity and energy each time.

  • Dubstep: Behind the capitalist cringe word lies a UK scene rooted with anti-war hypnosis of unity through bass

    editorial

    Because dubstep hasn’t died for a brief second, but took its beating from the music industry, I’m going to try to defend it and give you an insight of how things were always standing with this specific genre in mind and how the word dubstep ended up being a dirty word in the electronic music scene even today.
