INSIDE THE INDUSTRY

Colin: The Underground Is Thriving

  • Incredible underground movement right now.

  • Feel this is born out of the oversaturation and mainstream success of EDM in years prior

  • There’s a ton of incredible artists collectives, labels and blogs pushing this forward

  • Collectives/labels: phuture, Below The Surface, Jadu Dala, Quality Goods Records, Lost Dogz, Partica Artist Group, Myopic Sound

  • Blogs: FUXWITHIT, Noiseporn, Electric Hawk

Collaboration is key. Everyone is working together to see each other win. Labels doing collaborative projects, artists collabing or working to help put each other on. Everyone just has the same vision and goals to get music out in the world.

Everyone needs to keep supporting each other. The bigger we get, the bigger everyone gets.

  • We’re all working towards one goal
