I live in the South East of the UK, near the sea. Generally the local music scene around here is centred around Brighton and that’s no bad thing. There’s a varied mix of sub-cultures and scenes that lean towards the converging genres of underground metal and hip-hop – both of which I fuck with. Heavy. Bands like Architects, Abhorrent Decimation, and Vehement as well as High Focus acts Ocean Wisdom and Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, all hailing from the area.
This lead me to the underground rap scene that’s coming up in the USA at the moment, mainly out of southern states such as Florida, Georgia and Louisiana. Rappers such as Pouya, $UICDEBOY$, Lil Pump, Lil Peep, and XXXTentacion all pushing the boundaries of modern hip-hop and for the first time in what feels like a while, bringing something new to the table.
And that’s really what this blog is about, the dirty, angry, and sometimes ugly face of modern underground music and culture in all its forms. Reviews, opinions, news etc.
Thanks for reading.
