Show after show, track after track, the last year has seen Philadelphia producer Tyler Barton, AKA FOCUSS, continue cementing his name in the electronic music scene. And after his most recent release, “HOSTILE,” it appears he has no intention of slowing down.
The two and half minute track follows the course of a rambunctious and chaotic dubstep banger with twists and turns at every corner. FOCUSS’ ability to layer vocal samples over gritty bass lines continues to seep through his music, most notably in this recent release, but well felt throughout his entire discography in songs like “Falling” featuring JOZIE and his remix of Post Malone’s “Hollywood’s Bleeding.”
Having received the nod from dubstep don Excision and even getting featured on his Subsidia Records collective on past releases, FOCUSS seems to be approaching his production efforts with newfound confidence and momentum that is injecting his music with emotion and widespread appeal. Fans should look for him to keep pace as he fills his schedule collaborating with fellow artists in Philly and beyond while finetuning his live performance.

Earlier this year, FOCUS dropped a mix with over 10 IDs in it – every one of them as hard-hitting as the one before it. So if “HOSTILE” has left you wanting more from the rising dubstep artist, keep your eyes on his socials to make sure you know when the needle drops on the next one.
