G Interview With The Youngest Artist At Vh1 Supersonic: Curbi

Posted at February 21st, 2017 | by Karan Acharya | in

Toby Curwen-Bingley or Curbi, as we better know him, is a 19 year old British DJ and producer. He is currently signed under Spinnin’ Records, one of the largest record labels in the Dance music industry. Curbi was interestingly the youngest artist at this year’s edition of Vh1 Supersonic and it is safe to say that the man behind some of the hit releases Hoohah, Triple Six, Rubber, and Discharge was undoubtedly one of the best main stage performers at the festival. We caught up with him before his set at Supersonic, and here’s what he had to say:

GVO: Being a 19 year old DJ under revealed, what advice would you have for young and upcoming Indian artists out there?

Curbi:  Okay, so in my eyes, nowadays to be a well know DJ you obviously need the music. So in terms of production in music, I think that, you need to stand out with your own sound and style. So there are two different things, there is like sound and style and then there is your genre and in my eyes I think that its important to play around with genres that you make with tracks. So any genre, experiment with that, but try to like curve your own sound and style.

 

GVO: So since you mentioned genre, How would you like to describe your genre in particular?

Curbi: Well I don’t really have a genre. I tend to try to make anything, but with my sound and style, I think you could say its very loud, energetic, and upbeat.

 

GVO: You are currently one of the biggest artists in Spinnin’ records. So how hard or easy was it for you to rise up the ranks in Spinnin’?

Curbi: I signed like 2 to 3 years ago, but it’s difficult. You have just got to keep pushing your music out there, and if you stand out with your music, then are really going to focus on that. So as I started with Spinnin’, I already had a couple of tracks, in fact my first track which I released in Spinnin’ was Discharge and that got on to #2 on Beatport, and so they noticed that and were like “Oh, that’s cool.” So yeah, I just started pushing more and more music out there and so its really important to be persistent. Focus on your sound and play with different genres.

 

GVO: So what are your thoughts on music here in India?

Curbi: It’s amazing! It’s a wide range and I really like it. And with this festival as well, such a broad lineup, a different lineup, that’s really cool. It’s really nice to be a part of a festival like this.

 

GVO: Any Indian artists you would be looking to collaborate with in the future?

Curbi: I think Zaeden. He’s Indian right? *chuckles*. I was just checking. I like him, he’s also with Spinnin’ I believe.
