Jack London Revue, Portland, OR
21 years and over
Drummer/composer Barra Brown (Shook Twins, Ages and Ages, Old Wave, The Wishermen) and bassist/beat maker Alex Meltzer (Coco Columbia, Two Planets) 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.
