THIS BITCH RIGHT HERE! One of the first people ever to reach out to Cunt Traxxx in the early days, it seemed obvious to ask Shane when I needed a vocal for my debut EP. A real all-rounder, I sent his busy ass some questions to catch up, and to introduce him to the CVNTY readers...
Who is Sugur Shane?
Sugur Shane is an artist, but to break it down, a rapper, house vocalist, and DJ. In any case, not to be confused with a commentator or ballroom artist. Just wanted to clear that up, the mixtape has made some new Sugur Shane fans and they sometimes think I’m just ballroom.
How would you describe your sound?My sound is dark, grimey and aggressive. Very in your face! You can always catch some shady lyrics in my art.
Who or what is your biggest musical inspiration?
What's your favourite part of making music - djing, performance, production, etc?
How did you get into the whole house/ballroom scene?
You're very prolific - tell us what releases you have just now…
How did the collab with Schwarz happen and are you happy with it?He hit me up a few days after I followed him on soundcloud. I live for his production so when he hit me up I was immediately down. Our collab Club Kid Cunt is one of my favorite tracks. That trance kick with the ha did it for me. I wrote that track within a hour, that’s when you know I’m truly feeling it.
You play a lot in your native Philly - how is the ballroom scene outside of New York at the moment? Is it different from NY?
What has been the biggest influence on you besides music?
What's coming up in the near future for Sugur Shane?
