A week or so ago I ran into this artist at a show in Chicago and let me be the first to tell you, Troy Probst is a class act. Not only was I surprised by his willingness to chat with a fan of his music, but he absolutely killed his live set. Playing a wide range of EDM including glitch, trap, and dub, FiLiBuStA put on one hell of an unexpected show for those there to see L.A. resident and production whiz Sound Remedy. Throughout the brief set I had several friends and acquaintances approach me to inquire exactly, “Who is that”?
Well, that my friends is the one and only glitch hop sensation, Troy Probst aka FiLiBuStA.
Today we present to you his latest release, a remix of “Around The Block”, originally composed by EDM sensation and seasoned veteran Pretty Lights. On this track, FiLiBuStA does an excellent job of maintaining the original inherent soul that goes hand in hand with a production from Colorado based funk master Derek Vincent Smith, also known as Pretty Lights. While using a plethora of non-electronic instruments (guitar and even a badass saxophone) on this jam, Troy encourages listeners to scratch that peculiar itch with a hefty dose of his glitch fix.
Oh, and be sure to look out for Rager Onions’ forthcoming interview with the glitch hop super stud, FiLiBuStA.
