My first Pool Cosby show was a warm welcome. As I watched in awe of their ridiculously talented collection of voices and live instruments (even a trumpet), it felt like I had been a fan of theirs for a while. A perfect setting and tone for a groovy night @ The Bowery Electric.
The show featured an electronic blend of free-funk jazz, hip-hop, and future bass. Pair that up with live strings, brass, and woodwinds, and you have a uniquely, creative blend of sounds. It's a little something to get the backyard party popping, but so poetically crafted that it also fits perfectly into those down-tempo days. Pool Cosby is carving out their own self-defined style of production.
The crowd was all in - climbing benches for a better view and fully taking in the experience while the supergroup is still rising in the local touring circuit. The sample-based electronic group from Brooklyn, New York, reworks old school hip-hop and electronic future bass with an amazing taste and style. With a new album set to release this year, it's only a matter of time before they break out onto the regional and national scene.
