ATM-MicrophoneMastersDubCNN

Microphone Masters Radio is broadcast in stream / podcast format every Wednesday through the DubCnn network.

Last week, the show’s host J-Luv sat down with Julius, Demetrius, Kenny & Dice from Horseshoe Gang to discuss their new album “Anti-Trap Music” which releases on April 29th through Seven 13 Music & Entertainment.

During the interview, the group clarified their take on the trap music genre and the discussion progressed onto the issue of retaining lyrical integrity, and how remaining true to these ideals can be maintained using commercial productions.

They then moved on to the frustrations faced by many artists in the modern age, the prevelant expectation of multiple back to back releases. The oversaturation of the internet where quantity has replaced quality has become an issue in recent times, and has created an apparent obligation on artists to consistently produce new material and make available for free.

The interview wraps up with the group addressing the net grind / financial gain factor, the life sacrifices that have to be made to pursue a musical career and their call to radio stations to sit emerging and established artists side by side on the basis of quality and not budgets.

Interesting insight to which many will relate. The full feature was published on DubCnn where you can hear the full stream of the show which also includes tracks by E-40, Brotha Lynch Hung, J-Live, Grand Puba, Big Boi and more HERE
