Little White Earbuds took the opportunity to interview Steven Tang in Chicago, learning more about what’s given him the drive to make it as a full time artist. He also mixed together LWE’s 173rd exclusive podcast, 60 minutes of luscious house and techno, both new and old.
LWE reached out to Jimpster to discuss how the new album came about, some of the most potent recent trends in dance music, and the depths of his A&R practices.
