Korgy & Bass, comprised of drummer/composer Barra Brown and bassist/beatmaker Alex Meltzer, is an expertly crafted blend of deep hip-hop cuts, jazz experimentalism, and forward-thinking composition. Using limited instrumentation and improvisation in their performance, the duo drops massive grooves that harken back to hip hop's Golden Era while simultaneously paving a way for future sounds. The result is a sonic journey composed of digital and analog textures which allows Korgy & Bass to reverse engineer classic instrumental hip-hop vibes in real time

    Korgy & Bass

    Music

    Drummer/composer Barra Brown (Shook Twins, Ages and Ages, Old Wave, The Wishermen) and bassist/beat maker Alex Meltzer (Coco Columbia, Two Planets) met at an underground hip-hop jam session hosted by the HIVE Mind Collective in Portland, OR. Consisting of strictly hardware based sampling (no computers are used in the sampling/ creation/or live performance of the songs) through the Roland 404, 303, 202, SPD-S, micro-Korg and Korg Kaossilator pad, Korgy & Bass construct sample based beat music inspired by classic beatmakers like J. Dilla to more modern/jazz stylings like Robert Glasper and Flying Lotus.

    Pulling from their backgrounds in jazz, Korgy & Bass move expertly between composed and improvised beats in their live shows. The band pushes the boundaries of what a duo can do with samplers, bass, drums, and two synths and often invite MCs to freestyle during their sets. Their debut EP was released on Cavity Search Records in the summer of 2016.
