“…Once the badlands to NYC’s clubland, Brooklyn has been experiencing somewhat of a nitelife boom lately. With the opening of System, Output, TBA, and other mega clubs and spaces, the BK, as the borough is lovingly called (usually followed by a whut whut), is quickly becoming the new music mecca of the Big Apple state. But don’t be fooled, BK might be attracting big name EDM DJs and fist pumping tools to its newly minted dance floors, but the real scene is in the gritty underground that’s always been there. And it’s from this scene that emerges the subject of the following interview.

“Right from the belly of the Brooklyn underground comes emerging trend setters, Cubez. The hip-hop influenced duo made their debut with the release of their first EP, “Skams”.

“Cubez is a new duo consisting of Angelo Tursi’s tonal exploration and Eric White’s 808 beat crafting skills.

Eric laying down his signature 808 beats instantly had us bouncing and wanting more.
