Evolution Of Their Sound From BBNG1 To BBNG2
Matt: “BBNG2 is more of a document of all our influences and the energy we create when we play live. With BBNG1 it was just about jamming a couple hip-hop songs in a studio. When the first videos and recordings were happening, Chester was still in Ottawa.
We don't find that we're a lame hip-hop cover band or anything like that because we change things up. We keep it fresh and keep it fun.
"We hadn’t really jammed much and all we had were a couple cool ideas. Now we all understand each other’s influences and what everyone brings to the table and hopefully our music will continue to grow.”
Alex: “Most people heard the first tape and were like, ‘You're doing Ol' Dirty Bastard and stuff’ and asked where can they find more music that sounds like that. And it's like, we're not doing something new in the hip-hop thing—maybe the shoegaze thing [covering My Bloody Valentine] is more innovative.
"But people want to hear more jazz and music so why not put a cool spin on the music we like and breathe new life into it and get people into more music like that? For us, we don't find that we're a lame hip-hop cover band or anything like that because we change things up. We keep it fresh and keep it fun.”
