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.

Slimkid3: It's good when you hit rock bottom because there's nothing but you.
5 days ago
Slimkid3 was a member of The Pharcyde back in the 90s, bringing us some of the most fun hip-hop at a time when most of the music coming out of New York and LA was so damn serious. Their hits like "Passin’ Me By” and “Runnin’” blew up worldwide, and then everything fell apart for the group.
Now Tre is in our studio telling us how he was able to start over and build a career that’s now into its third decade.
Today, he’s partners with DJ Nu-Mark in TRDMRK; he’s part of the rock band Backbone, and he’s performing live with his former bandmate under the name Bizarre Ride, as well as tearing up the dance floor as a DJ.
A couple secrets to his success:
- Just don’t give a fuck. He’ll tell you how things started happening when he learned to stop caring what people thing.
- Get lost in the music. Spend time listing to the muse.
- Never let someone else define your path.
Dig in here and let us know if you dig it, ya dig?

DJ NuMark is dope!
I love all the artists featured so far but I really love the episode with DJ NuMark. He's so down to earth, fun, and really inspired me to keep doing my thing. The host has a great voice. Can't wait to hear more!
