Sounduo is a post-dub, audio/visual live performance project. It features poly-rhythmic hip-hop grooves, vintage samples, soulful vocals, ambient soundscapes, and heavy synth bass passed through a scuzzed-out dub filter and mangled using the latest in glitch technology, live. Masters of creating a futuristic glowing dub atmosphere while maintaining the bass-driven, party-vibe feel of bass music, Sounduo has showcased their abilities to cater to both festival environments as well as intimate club settings. Whether performing in the Southeast at some of the biggest music festivals (Ultra, Blackwater, Aura, Winter Music Conference, Art Basel), sharing dates with artists such as Big Gigantic, Elliot Lipp, Zoogma, and Archnemesis, headlining club dates, or being featured on prominent electronic blogs, Sounduo’s buzz for their live performances has steadily grown and the next year promises to be a leap forward for these electronic and visual dub pioneers.
With the release of ‘Departures,’ their debut LP on Made in Glitch (Bass Science, Gladkill, NastyNasty,Samples,GRiZ), and subsequent Southeast regional tour in early 2012, Sounduo continues to push the boundaries of post-dub/glitch music and are poised to enter the national arena. Stay tuned for more releases as well as dates, videos, and updates from Sounduo.
