Birocratic Quit His Day Job Last Year and He's Not Looking Back

Birocratic Quit His Day Job Last Year and He's Not Looking Back

The life of a working musician is often glamorized, but reaching the point where you can support yourself strictly off of music isn't easy. New York's Brandon Rowan — best known by his stage name Birocratic — knows this all too well. Despite first breaking out in 2013 when a still-nascent Buzzfeed Media used his Creative Commons tracks in over thirty of their videos, he has had to work hard to become self-sustaining. But last January, he finally reached that point, and he's running with it. His success isn't surprising, though. Birocratic's music seamlessly bridges several instrumental genres — including upbeat future-funk, electronica,…

Devaloop Slams Song Thieves and Explains How Labels Have Changed the Online Beat Scene

Devaloop Slams Song Thieves and Explains How Labels Have Changed the Online Beat Scene

Devaloop keeps a low profile. The industrious Austrian beatmaker — born Fabian Pfitzer in Salzburg — eschews most social media; besides his Soundcloud, Devaloop maintains only a bare-bones Instagram page and a small Facebook page. This may not appear noteworthy at first glance, but it is. As the beat community has expanded online and gained increasing attention, many producers have become just as extraverted on social media as rappers and singers — two groups that have always tended to be heavy self-promoters. An extensive social media presence for producers is now no longer an exception; it's essentially the norm. But Devaloop would rather…

Chuck D, Bishop Lamont & Mykill Miers - I Rap Black (feat. Create & Devastate)

Chuck D, Bishop Lamont & Mykill Miers - I Rap Black (feat. Create & Devastate)

“I Rap Black” is a powerful collaborative statement from rappers Chuck D, Bishop Lamont, and Mykill Miers, who kick serious knowledge over a slapping instrumental from Swedish producer, Max I Million. They’re also joined by Swedish deejay/turntablist duo Create & Devastate—the latter of whom tragically passed this past March—with outro cuts handled by Besh One. The track is an all-out celebration of unity and strength, and its arrival couldn’t have been timed better as today marks the 28th anniversary of Public Enemy’s classic third album, 'Fear of a Black Planet. ' Fittingly, PE frontman…
