About

UBERSOUNDS is a music blog that focuses on “art rap”—i.e. otherground, experimental, avant-garde rap music—and music generally. Created by Jordan Bates and his alter-ego, LOSTBOYEVSKY, the object here is to cull the dark caverns, share whatever gems we discover, and spark intellectual discourse about rap and music. Let’s grace our earholes with some uber-creative shite. Because fuck the radio.
