PRESS RELEASE

  • “They’re just taking popular and formal aspects of popular music and putting it into this new sound. One of the principle differences is you’re dealing with musicians who are actually quite accomplished. It’s not people who can only play three chords. It’s not people who need to use Auto-Tune. And you’re getting music like this.”
    -Steven Cantor (Beats and Pieces in the Cloud) on NPR 
  • “”It’s the confluence of the rhythmic intricacies in Louis’ superhuman drumming, ear-catching harmonic movement, wonderfully catchy melodies, and trippy visuals all fused together seamlessly into a singular artistic entity that put Knower in a class of their own…be prepared to have your mind blown and your booty shaken.”
    -Michael Fishman, Jazz, Spontaneous Music Programming 
  • “…they’re so universally conscious. I like that. You can feel it in their music. Killin. So badass. And I don’t give it up very easily! I don’t.”
    -Eric Harland (Drummer), Interview in Back Beat Magazine 
  • “Yoo! This is my sh%&%*t! I confess upon my first listen I thought “Ohh it’s too early for this tempo.” Not a big fan of synths and 130 bpms but this is the exception!”
    -Anthony Valadez, KCRW DJ 
  • “…their combined sound is one of pure MDMA. Citing influences such as Tony Williams, James Brown and Kate Bush, they’ve pumped out a funky stream of percussion-heavy music since their initial merge in 2010.”
    -Brandon Tauszik, Friends With Both Arms 
  • “Parts jazz, drum and bass, and electronica, their music is rhythmically and harmonically sophisticated, while still being catchy and very danceable.”
    -Jonathan Lindhorst, About.com Jazz 
  • “Artadi provides exquisite part-jazz singer, part-pop star vocals over Cole’s mind-bending, near-unfathomable drumming. With a duo like this, it would be all too easy for the talent and performance to eclipse the music, but Cole and Artadi continually offer well-crafted songs…”

    -Jonathan Lindhorst, About.com Jazz 
  • “It is often taken for granted in today’s musical culture that musicians must choose between being serious and having fun…Louis and Genevieve have artfully carved a niche for themselves someplace far from both extremes. Theirs is the fun of an absurd idea carried through to its conclusion, whether it be comic, tragic, or some combination of the two.”
