GREY TAPES - Live In Newcastle
Beat-maker and producer collective Grey Tapes to hit Newcastle's The Cluny
More live than most electronic bands, and more electronic than most live bands, Grey Tapes is a beat-maker and producer collective based in Newcastle upon Tyne. The group consists of Mr Blazey, Bert Verso, Calum Howard, and Bain, with Dan Potter on live drums.
Grey Tapes endeavour to keep live electronic music truly live - avoiding clicks, sequencers or backing tracks in favour of live sample triggering and instrumentation. Everything you hear is played manually by a finger, an arm or leg. Each member of Grey Tapes is a producer in their own right, giving the live band a wealth of electronic music to perform.
Their instrumentation includes double bass, live drums, homemade midi controllers, synthesisers, piano, samplers, vocals, drum machines and omnichord. Grey Tapes' music traces the lines between hip hop, trip hop, jazz, electronica, ambient and lofi dream pop.
