Within the current electronic music scene, it’s hard for an artist to just make music without being automatically assigned to an ever-expanding filing cabinet of made-up sub-genres *ahem* Pitchfork. If it wobbles, it’s post-dubstep. Vocodes? It’s post-grunge (or some shit). If it’s got hi-hats on the 16ths, it’s trap. Forcing these lenses on electronic music is limiting to the listener, the artist, and the genre as a whole. As the genre continues to evolve, styles naturally break, bend, and blend. One day in the future, everything will be post-everything.
Pasadena producer and pure mathematician Slopycopy IS post-everything, and and one of the most pioneering and versatile electronic producers to look out for this year. His sweeping sonic landscapes range from the familiar dubstep bounce, to raver kid ear-candy, to eerie and downright what-the-fuck, often all in the same song, making him impossible to pigeonhole into a single genre. This year, Slopycopy wrapped up a new album, Satanic, which is available for free download on his BandCamp.
