"Meet Brooklyn’s Beat Magician, Xenia Rubinos"

Not only is Xenia Rubinos MTV Iggy’s Artist of the Week winner, but she has also captured the attention of The New Yorker, Fader, VICE, WNYC, and more in her brief career. She has only released her seminal debut album, Magic Trix last year, but luckily she’s already planning another one.

Magic Trix is built off the foundation of syncopated percussion and heavy keyboards and manic craziness that will knock you sideways.

In the interview, Rubinos told us all about her Cuban and Puerto Rican roots, her music, her fans, and even her family. She told us about Aunt Rosa, the melodic complexity of her music, and Brooklyn. Read on, read on, read on… - MTV Iggy
