About This Show
Rebel Radio is brought to you in partnership with EDM.com
The Art of Selling Without Selling Out.
Rebel Radio shines a light on cultural pioneers and their influences, reflecting on the roots and future of underground culture. We engage the influencers who define what we wear, watch, listen to, and play with — and how we spend our spare time and loose change — and explore what it means to be a creative entrepreneur today.
Our weekly interview show explores the journeys of those who do it best in all areas of youth culture. We learn how they stay creative in the face of relentless distract and setbacks. How they make something where previously nothing existed, how they find inspiration and influence, as well as how they inspire and influence others, and what it takes to create movements.

Mattie Safer: How to Find Something Better
Mattie Safer has made music across three genres. You might know him as the bassist for The Rapture, the indie (or something) band whose track House of Jealous Lovers was called a top-10 song of the decade by NME.
But Mattie’s true passion is in soul and hip-hop. So much so that he left The Rapture so he could make music that really speaks to him. His debut EP — All We Are — feels like more of a tribute to Stevie Wonder and Curtis Mayfield, or at least Bobby Caldwell, than anything from the early 2000s electro era.
He comes by the studio to tell us what it’s like to walk away from success in search of something bigger, to organize everything in life around a single pursuit.
