Stationary is an adjective that means something is not moving, not intended to be moved, or not to be changed. It is easily mistaken for the word ‘Stationery’ which is a noun representing things such as erasers and pencils and other equipment used for writing letters, academic literature, and different forms of art like drawing and painting. The idea of BELOWGROUND is based on a stationary concept. It is an everlasting venue for fashion and culture lovers to come together and set their eyes on a new piece of clothing or creative product each time they visit. Image source: Pen Store
A rotation is a circular movement of an object around a center (or point) of rotation. The geometric plane along which the rotation occurs is called the rotation plane, and the imaginary line extending from the center and perpendicular to the rotation plane is called the rotation axis. A three-dimensional object can always be rotated about an infinite number of rotation axes. Many different brands move in and out of BELOWGROUND almost like a rotation of rosters, keeping the energy and experience moving for those who visit. Image Source: Sylverarts
Memphis rap, also known as Memphis hip hop or Memphis horrorcore, is a regional subgenre of hip hop music that originated in Memphis, Tennessee in the early 1990s. It has been characterized by its often low budget, repetitive production, and its occasional lo-fi sound that utilizes the 808 and minimal synth melodies. The genre commonly features double-time flows and samples ranging from soul and funk to horror film scores and classical music, as well as hooks from songs by related rappers in the same genre.
Just like the unpredictability of Memphis Rap, BELOWGROUND will have its own sense of unpredictability with a roaster and rotation of different brands and DJs taking part in it yet giving the same sense of feel for the culture.

A high-pass filter (HPF) is an electronic filter that passes signals with a frequency higher than a certain cutoff frequency and attenuates signals with frequencies lower than the cutoff frequency. It is sometimes called a low-cut filter or bass-cut filter in the context of audio engineering. High-pass filters have many uses, such as blocking DC from circuitry sensitive to non-zero average voltages or radiofrequency devices.
A high-pass filter is being used by DJs at FM BELOWGROUND to bring you the best possible sound system and experience.
