Every week, the State of Sound podcast welcomes an artist from our monthly concert series into the studio to go deep on one of their songs. For more info on the live show, including how to get tickets, visit the event page.

On Feb. 3, 88Nine officially relaunched our State of Sound project with the first of what's sure to be many concert showcases. The performance space at Radio Milwaukee was packed as Sleepy Gaucho, dak duBois, Scam Likely and Wave Chapelle introduced this amped-up version that left everyone looking forward to the next concert showcase March 2.

But we still weren’t done.

Last Thursday marked the debut of the podcast companion to State of Sound, which features highlights from the live show and an artist interview that digs deep into one of their songs. Episodes focused on the four artists from the February concert will be released soon, but in the meantime, we decided to get started by inviting back someone who helped us bring State of Sound to life last year.

In this episode, I talk with Milwaukee’s El Sebas — a Mexican rapper, writer, performer and curator whose art is influenced by his culture and experiences. He forms half of Latin hip-hop duo Browns Crew, performing alongside fellow rapper Cristo Paz, but is currently putting further focus on his solo material.

Use the player at the top of the page or your podcast engine of choice to listen to the full episode featuring El Sabas’ live studio performance from last July, as well as our chat about the song “Chavo de Abajo.” And don’t forget to get tickets to our next live show on the State of Sound event page.
