Artist, songwriter and producer CUB, known to his friends as Billy, makes an eclectic crossover of electronic dance and pop music. A graduate of music production, CUB has been immersed in music his entire life, and started his musical journey age ten. During his studies, Billy founded In A Box Records and The In A Box Project, which he describes as a “forward thinking production collective, music publisher, record label & blog that looks to provide resources & support to independent artists.”
Still in the early stages of his career, CUB is currently working to develop his brand and industry connections whilst discovering his sonic identity. The soul searching has not stopped the young producer from working on material with artists such as Fredrick Long, Clara Hurtado and Pleasure Trap as well as writing songs for Brighton’s LIFT Music/Boost Publishing and Hookers Songs.
Obsessed sees CUB lay a multitude of his artistic talents down. A statement of desire for another, Clara’s smooth vocals float between a quirky guitar hook and pounding bass line to create a club-infused pop cocktail. Citing influences from the likes of Mura Masa, Diplo and Zedd, CUB and Clara have a firm grasp on what it takes to make a boundary pushing, standout hit.
Sharing an insight to Obsessed, CUB states “It came together so naturally, it’s starting to feel like a family and that’s how it should be.”
