The Loop: Eversive
Beat music is a form that has grown out of various strains of electronic music, right in our backyard. Several local collectives are going strong with monthly live showcases and online compilations, and Texas Music Matters wants to shine a light on the scene. Each week, we’ll highlight a different artist and their music, and we’ll let them tell their own stories in order to put beat music into a Texas perspective—we’re calling it The Loop.
For beat artist Chris Medders, his hometown of Corpus Christi is something of a mixed bag. According to him, electronic music there is years behind the curve, but the kind of struggle that Medders endured has certainly made him a better musician. Under the name Eversive, he’s switched from rapping into full-on electronic sounds, though he still incorporates hip-hop beats into his eclectic songs. On this edition of The Loop, Medders discusses his punk and hip-hop roots and how music is a spiritual experience for him.
Note: The Loop will be taking a short break after this week as KUT moves into its new building.
