Boogie T
Boogie T
Born and raised in the swamps of Louisiana, playing and writing music since the tender age of eight, Brock Thornton aka Boogie T has come along way to bring the low end ruckus. Hailing from the South, the cradle of soul, it is easy to hear this influence in his music. Riddim, Dubstep, Bass, whatever you want to call it, for Boogie T it has always been about entertaining. Whether singing, playing guitar/keys/bass, acting, DJ’ing or producing, Boogie T's goal is simple: make great music and connect with people by taking risks and pushing boundaries. And these risks are paying off as Boogie T is set to explode!

With releases on Atlantic/Big Beat, SubCarbon Records, Circus Records, SMOG Records + more coming, and recent dates across the country and beyond with Ganja White Night, Snails, Trollphace, Funtcase, Midnight Tyrannosaurus, Minnesota, G Jones, LOUDPVCK, Skism, pOgman, Riot Ten + many more, and now gracing the stages of festivals such as Big Dub, Imagine, 515 Alive, UpNorth, Dreamscape,and Nightmare Fest, Boogie T is blazing a path from bayou the to the main stage!
A bass dragon lurks over the underground. A dark lizard soars over the scene and regularly drops bangers from above. He is the dreaded and dank, the revered and feared. His name is SQUNTO, and if you have heard him, your consciousness may or may not be intact.

Combining crusty, growling synth lines, heavy drums, and influences from across the low spectrum, SQUNTO has been letting the hammer fall all over the United States, as well as Europe and Australia. He just dropped his STAY LOCKED II EP as a free download, and it is a force from another world.

The SQUNTO project is one of the many focuses of Eric Roth, a man of many talents, from music production to longboarding, and some crazy stuff in between. I got the chance to ask the man about his music, passions, and future plans for the movement.
