The Cosmic Beats of Buffalo’s Space Boy: An Exclusive Dive

Space Boy: Buffalo’s Underground Luminary

Buffalo, New York has witnessed a massive upheaval in its hip-hop scene, and leading the charge is none other than Space Boy. An independent producer and guitarist, Space Boy is redefining the beats that echo through the city’s streets. His sound, a perfect blend of trap, EDM, and classic hip-hop, is the refreshing taste that the industry didn’t know it needed.

The Evolution of Space Boy’s Music

Beginning with a love for the piano and guitar during his middle school years, Space Boy’s musical journey is deeply intertwined with his life’s experiences. Whether it was playing for a death metal band in high school or being greatly inspired by Buffalo’s vibrant hip-hop culture during his university years, these influences have shaped the artist he is today.

His unique fusion labeled as “cybergoth” is what sets him apart. Space Boy’s music encapsulates a wide range of electronic genres. From the hauntingly gothic horror sounds to the danceable hip-hop grooves, his music captures a diverse audience, making him a staple in the Buffalo music scene.

Collaboration: The Heartbeat of “SL9Y3R”

Space Boy’s latest album “SL9Y3R” is not just a testament to his evolving sound but also to the collaborative spirit of music. Working with 9 different vocalists and producers, the album is a blend of genres, from R&B to horror trap. Yet, at its core, it retains Space Boy’s distinct mix and mastering style, giving it a touch that’s truly out of this world.

His collaborative efforts have given rise to some of the most memorable tracks. Space Boy believes in the organic evolution of music, often relying on group sessions and input from everyone in the studio.

A Voice for Buffalo’s Hip-Hop

Space Boy’s love for hip-hop shines brightly in his work. Drawing from the culture’s free-form lyricism, he gives his artists the freedom to voice their thoughts and feelings. Space Boy’s music stands as a testament to Buffalo’s diverse music scene and the potential it holds beyond the mainstream.

Having faced challenges, including the loss of a year’s worth of work when his Macbook was stolen in 2022, Space Boy’s resilience is commendable. He’s bounced back with even greater determination and passion for his craft.

What Lies Ahead?

With plans to tour other cities and already producing three additional albums for some undisclosed big names, the future looks promising for Space Boy. As he says, his best work is yet to come.
