FuntCase delineates DPMO label launch, the ‘Corruption’ EP that’s starting it all, mental health, and more [Q&A]

FuntCase embarked on his DPMO (Don’t P*ss Me Off) label journey in 2017, and while under Circus Records, he was able to showcase an onslaught of dubstep’s filthiest tracks through a three-volume compilation series, FuntCase Presents: DPMO. After this strong start, the masked artisan is now overseeing the official launch of his DPMO label with a four-track EP, Corruption. FuntCase collaborates with some of the finest up-and-coming producers in bass music on the DPMO-installing effort, enlisting Versa, Yakz, Jkyl & Hyde, and Stoned LeveL for a monstrous upheaval. To FuntCase and his collaborators’ credit, all four tracks catapult fans into otherworldly realms of prismatic rhythms and afflicting doom.In an interview with Dancing Astronaut, FuntCase discussed the label’s journey, sourcing Corruption‘s collaborators, mental health, and what’s ahead.
