Fronted by Odario Williams, Canadian hip hoppers Grand Analog are a band that seamlessly fuse R&B, jazz, reggae and rock into their very own style of hip hop that Williams has fittingly described as “rap’n’roll!” Joined by Warren Bray, Alister Johnson, TJ Garcia and Aubrey McGhee, Grand Analog perform and record mainly on live instruments instead of digital electronics!
The project have just completed a brand new EP, Survival, which is due for release on January 26th 2018 and features lead single Mutations which was released just three days ago. Featuring Posdnuos from De La Soul, the track pays homage to the early days of hip hop and struts along to a good old school slow-paced beat with rhythmic, harmonised, punchy vocals and a sweet-sounding, fluttering synth-driven melody. I love it to bits!! Listen above.
