Kubus is a Dutch producer mainly known as the man behind some of the most upfront and extraordinary hip hop productions of the past decades. Unlike other hip hop producers, Kubus' roots go back to the early rave days when raw analogue beats and brutal electronics were fused into something unheard of before. Hence it's no surprise that his unique style is a fusion of techno, electro, and hip hop. Throughout the years, he expanded his own borders and experiments on a daily basis with some of the finest modular- and hardware synths, constantly in search of new, wicked sounds.
