"Party's Never Over" is a Latin influenced hip-hop party song that features Mark Victor on vocals. The contagious energy and light-hearted vibrancy of this single are the first things that stand out. The clever hook that integrates Latin flair and the quirky wordplay showcase Dubkiller’s talented as a songwriter, while the bouncing beat, vast soundscape, and the horn section tie everything together. As a producer, Dubkiller flawlessly blends genres to create the party track of 2019. The music video showcases Mark Victor as an energetic artist and gifted vocalist. I highly recommend you check out this new single “Party’s Never Over” and the exciting new visuals to match.

Hey Dubkiller! Welcome to BuzzMusic! How did you originally get started producing music and songwriting?
My earliest memories of music are of my father playing the drums. He would be practicing in the basement and it just made me dance and jump around like a madman. The way music made me feel was incredible. I just wanted to be able to do that for other people. I played drums in lots of rock bands with varying degrees of success. When the last band I was in imploded I just decided that I was done with being in bands, but I didn’t want to give up on music. So I bought a computer, a keyboard and music-making software and taught myself to write and produce. I’ve produced and written music for everyone from Selena Gomez to Tokio Hotel to Disney, all while releasing my own music. Though my own music has taken a back seat from time to time while working on projects for other artists.
What do you hope your fans take away from your latest track “Party’s Never Over”?
“Party’s Never Over” which features (Mark Victor) is the first single off my upcoming EP. “The Antidote” which comes out September 27th on all digital platforms. With “Party” we just wanted it to sound and feel like a party. With all the crap and negativity going on in the world, we just wanted to free people to have a little fun and feel good if even for just a few minutes. Also, I’ve been digging a lot of the Latin music I’ve been hearing lately and I just wanted to give this song some of that flavor.
If you had to pick just one song in your collection to adequately describe your sound, which song would you choose and why?
That’s a hard one. I’m such a fan of music, in general, it’s hard not to find bits in every genre that I love and want to incorporate into my own productions. It’s a lot like cooking. For better or worse I love mixing different sounds and flavors constantly looking to create something new. If I had to narrow it down to one song. Right now I’d say “Eyes On You” by Oekiin. It’s heavy, it’s electronic, it’s a trap, there are cellos and I love the message. It’s out now too. Oekiin is someone to look out for he’s featured on the new Illenium album.
What do you think sets you apart from mainstream music today?
I’m not totally sure, to be honest. I just do what I do. I’m in a place to be as creative as I want to be. I guess it’s my willingness to combine genres. Hip Hop, Pop, electronic, etc. I love big beats, heavy bass, and great melodies.
What do you hope to achieve through the remainder of 2019?
My goal for the rest of the year is to expose my music to as many people as possible. Make people feel something, make them dance, make them think, make them happy. Also to keep releasing new music.
