Filibusta (Troy Probst) is an emerging artist from the tiny town of Fillmore, IL. When he grew bored of tipping cows and wrecking tractors, he taught himself to play guitar. Since then, his fingers have buzzed with life. He uses an MPD drum pad to trigger drum, bass, synth, and vocal samples live. Thus, Filibusta’s work vibes as a real-life, in-your-face experience — creative, original, and just for you.
Filibusta has been mixing and producing music since 2007, sharing the stage with The Glitch Mob, EOTO, Crizzly, MartyParty, Minnesota, Freddy Todd, Robotic Pirate Monkey, R/D, ChrisB, Trill Murray, jOBOT, Unlimited Gravity, Spankalicious, Prophet Massive, Jantsen, Break Science, ill-esha, Signal Path, and Papa Skunk in recent years. His remixes include tracks by The Glitch Mob, Skillrex, and Nit Grit just to name a few. In spring 2012, he achieved a mighty 3rd place in the Untz Challenge III. Filibusta’s grand scheme in life is to restore the progressive and melodic elements of glitch and dubstep. With over 500,000 plays on Soundcloud, Filibusta is an artist you’ll want to keep your ears open to!
