Local Spotlight- Linus Stubbs at 7:59 PM

"Linus Stubbs maintains a low profile, but on the underground circuit his beats are in high demand. The Ogden-based producer’s resume is covered in collaborations with multiple emcees, from Utah to Canada and thereabouts in between. Recently, he teamed up with Task for Urban Life of the Suburbanite"
Jamie Gadette, City Weekly, Salt Lake City, UT
____________________________________________________

Linus was raised here in Ogden, Utah collecting records, skateboarding, snowboarding and mixing beats together in remarkable ways. In his early teens Linus was inspired to start mixing beats from going to desert raves, local hip hop shows and house parties and his determination helped him continue to create and prosper. Now Linus Stubbs beats are sought after by some of hip hops most up and coming emcees.

Linus Stubbs is quite possible one of the most creative artists I've encountered to date. Mixing jazz beats with classical instrumental, drum beats with old school soul and creating music that makes you want to dance wildly. Listening to Linus Stubbs evokes emotions that make me want to both create art and burn it all down at the same time, i get a rush and I cant help but to stand up and dance . His beats inspire you, make you see or hear things just a little bit differently and even transport you, for just a little while, somewhere so much better than a sometimes boring day. isn't that what music is supposed to do, move you? If so Linus Stubbs does it right and with style. I have a feeling that Linus Stubbs is a force to be reckoned with, the future sound of hip hop. I'd love to see Linus collaborating with MF Doom or Peanut Butter Wolf and being a staple name in the hip hop community and he is well on his way to that.
