The Loop: One4All
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.
Back when he was in a band in high school, Augustine Verrengia got fed up with having to convince the other bandmates to practice. So Verrengia picked up a computer and started to make his own music under the name One4All, and soon he found an entire network of fellow electronic artists to collaborate with. It’s a bit different from sitting in the same room as another musician, but the wider boundaries have led to music that’s as creative and all-inclusive as the One4All moniker. On this edition of The Loop, Verrengia talks about how technology and the quantity of artists are both positives in contemporary music.
