DOMI & JD BECK (2024)
DOMi & JD BECK’s music finds both humour and greatness in harmonic complexity, rhythmic shiftiness, and speed. DOMi favours sounds that evoke ‘70s jazz fusion and the colourful blips of 2000s Pokémon soundtracks, while JD tunes and plays his snare in ways that can sound electronic, channelling IDM and boom bap. Sometimes they’re stuffed into a bathroom and sometimes the drums are muffled by pretzels stacked on the hi-hat, or toilet paper tossed on the snare. Their acclaimed debut album – NOT TiGHT, released by Anderson .Paak’s new label APESHIT in partnership with the legendary jazz label Blue Note Records – is an attempt to bottle their goofy magic. Featuring collaborations with the likes of Laneway alumni Thundercat, Mac DeMarco and .Paak himself, the album earned them two Grammy nominations including Best New Artist.
