At just 19 years old, Tincup stands as both a rising star and a driving force in the EDM and Trap worlds. With a clever blend of jazz, hip-hop, dubstep and trap, Tincup’s many inspirations allow him to seamlessly create from genre to genre without losing his subtle, yet signature sound. Music creation started for Tincup at age 9, when he took a simple keyboard and began reprogramming the drums presets that came with the keyboard to a sound more to his liking. After playing drums in 6th grade, his music curiosities lead him to study other instruments before making the full plunge into music production by studying and using Apple Logic. His first productions were very hip-hop based but after listening to Rusko, he transitioned to EDM and has not looked back since. In just a year, Tincup has been ranked #7 on Billboard’s Next Big Sound December 5, 2013 chart and has racked up over 1.2 million plays on Soundcloud. In 2014, Tincup has already released 2 big records: “Critics”, which gained over 25,000 plays in the 1st day of release and “Gucci Jacuzzi” featuring RiFF RAFF, Crichy Crich, Yung Elvis and multiplatinum rapper Lil Flip. With a number of shows planned across the U.S., the best for Tincup is yet to come.
