AF: What did you come away with from the experience in Austin during the week of SXSW?
STVY RVRE: Well I must say this year at SXSW it was the largest gathering of Black Marble Collective producers yet. It was so great to get our producers from all over the country to come together. The friendships that started URL to finally come together IRL has been a dream for sometime. The friendship was instant and the comradery was nothing I have felt before. It was truly a great experience not only for the crew but all our artists friends from other labels and supporters. Bonds that will go on for years to come.
AF: Is there a favorite food of the collective?
STVY RVRE: Ramen, Phò, Sushi, Beer and Pizza I would say.
AF: Are there any Black Marble Collective music videos or choreography videos?
