Celebrating An Uprising
Interviewing artists is often a very insightful experience and I find purposeful questions are a vital part of the interview philosophy. The reviewed ideas, motivations and beliefs are in a sense magnified through the interview process– while giving the artist a focused medium for expression. Getting a...

As the dispute of the genre's validity and lifespan rages on and on (in a somewhat dull manner), I'm often surprised by the frequency of new labels popping up and releasing great music based around the 140bpm dubstep/ bass music area. Underslung Audio is one of these new imprints.
