Portland artists Korgy & Bass, as well as their friend and collaborator Cyrus Nabipoor stopped by PRP studio to chat with Jenna D and Asia Wagner about their new album Remote and the upcoming show at the Mississippi Studios.
Drummer Barra Brown and bassist & beat-maker Alex Meltzer, who have been producing music together since 2015, teamed up with Portland-raised and NOLA-based jazz musician Nabipoor for this unique project. They poignantly float between the tradition and modernism, sampling trumpet loops created by Nabipoor and adding Korgy & Bass flavor – heavy with drums, beats, and chill electro vibes. The album drops today and is available on all streaming services.
The three of them will perform together on June 19that Mississippi Studios, where they will celebrate their album in a double release show, alongside another Portland musician, Aan.
Listen to the interview below to learn about their musical background, the unique process of creating Remote, and their upcoming show.
