Jon Wayne and The Pain
If Lee Scratch Perry and Deadmau5 died, went to heaven, and recorded an album with Bradley Nowell and Jerry Garcia, they’d end up with something like Jon Wayne and The Pain’s new full length album “Surrender”. In addition to the Minneapolis trio’s signature sound of roots infused Reggae Rock, their latest release adds a bold fusion of Jam and EDM into the fold.
The trio’s previous album “Follow Through” for the most part only teases with a few subtle, dark electronic elements but stays true to the roots infused Reggae Rock sound that could be described as an ideal poolside soundtrack. Until the release of “Surrender”, their sometimes sinister combination of organic drums and guitar with electronic bass and synths could only be heard if fans could catch the band’s live act in clubs and festivals around the U.S. or sift through bootleg uploads on Youtube. Their third full length album is full of electronic instrumentals that build from entrasic dub loops (wait for the drop) then explode into high energy party anthems with intense vocals and powerful acoustic drums.
Pushing boundaries further, Jon Wayne and The Pain inject Roots, Jam, and Ska into the mix with sounds that band members Jon, Chuckie, and Teeto have grown to love while playing alongside some of the most influential musicians in the festival scene. Complete with a sanctioned Grateful Dead cover and a festie-fan shout out track “Festival Friends”, JWP pays tribute to the Jam scene in a big way. Keeping in tune with the sound that made fans rush to see Jon Wayne and The Pain since the band’s early days, heartfelt Reggae-Rock tunes are still a staple in the diverse collection of songs that make up “Surrender”
New Sound Underground
New Sound Underground is a genre-defying, Minneapolis-based ensemble who has built a reputation around their energetic & riveting live performances, and is quickly becoming one of the most respected names among musicians & audiences alike. While their influences include such instrumental music heavyweights as Soulive, Weather Report, The RH Factor & Snarky Puppy, their music is a well-developed fu...sion of varied inspirations. It’s this ultimately soulful, yet inventive balance which makes their music so compelling for audiences of the most careful listeners or carefree revelers.
May of 2011 marked the release of their well-received debut album, "Lipofunktion," under their original moniker, P.B. & The Jam, at Minneapolis’ famed funk capital, Bunker’s Bar & Grill. Not wanting to waste any time, they promptly reentered the studio to begin recording their sophomore effort, "Pocket Protectors." In April of 2012, it was released at a nearly maxed out capacity Whiskey Junction where they have held a strong residency every Sunday night since 2010. Since these momentous album releases, they've given 25 states, dozens of Minnesota & national music festivals, and hundreds of thousands of people across the nation the pleasure of their sulfuric, unique expressions. Even now, New Sound Underground is already preparing their next studio project, which is sure to mark a departure point in the growth & evolution of the band, to be released in early 2013.
Despite hailing from various places over the country – the Pacific Northwest, the South, the Upper Midwest – New Sound Underground’s members have all become mainstays in the Minneapolis music scene in such wide-ranging genres as hip-hop, reggae, jazz, salsa, funk, R&B, and gospel. This convergence of diverse experience has developed into a natural group dynamic & is a diligently defining characteristic of their unparalleled, signature sound.
Kanser is a hip hop group from Minnesota, USA, originally comprised of MCs New MC and Unicus, MC/Producer Mesh (5), and DJ Elusive.
