Heavy Color's music can be traced to the intense emotional explorations of 60's and 70's Spiritual Jazz, the non-stop and relentless heartbeat of Fuji, Warba, and Afrobeat musics, and the oft kilter yet ever expanding futurist beatmusic universe.
Heavy Color creates ethereal soundscapes with live percussion, MPC mashing, on the fly sampling, vocals and synthesizers. Combining a soulful electronic hazinesss with the organic textures of African and Latin percussion heavy music. The live performance is accompanied by synchronized projections creating an interactive audio/visual experience. The project toured most of the US in 2014 and shared the stage with such artists as Black Milk, Ras G, Quelle Chris, EDAN, Radius, Beyond Luck, Nunca Duerma, Diogenes and plenty more. A new album is in the works and is due out in early 2015. The self-titled album is available on iTunes or Bandcamp.
