I highly recommend checking out this band’s music. Gravity delivers a roller coaster of sonic energy to its listeners. The band blends traditional instrumentation with live studio production and DJ techniques to form a futuristic blend of funk, dub, hip-hop, rock, and psychedelia. The result is a balance of digital and analog sound coming together that moves the feet and stimulates the mind.
Gravity’s explosive live shows offer a range of intriguing original compositions and clever covers, making for a sound that is simultaneously futuristic and vintage, a ride that is not to be missed! Check out this Slideshow of the band at their latest show at Cervante’s Masterpiece Ballroom in downtown Denver(click image below).
The Pocket Piano is a mini electronic synthesizer with a big sound! The synthesizer features six unique modes:
• Vibrato Synth
• Harmonic Sweeper
• Two-Octave Arpeggiator
• Octave Cascade
• Mono FM Synth
• FM Arpeggiator
The Pocket Piano is housed in a sturdy aluminum and hardwood case and also includes a built-in speaker, a 1/4″ output jack, and wooden keys made for a refined touch. It can be powered both by a 9V battery or a wall wart (not included).
When you change modes with the right-most wooden button, a color LED above that button indicates what mode is selected with a different color for each mode. The entire keyboard may be tuned over a 2 octave range by turning the knob second from right. Volume is controlled by the right-most knob. The function of the remaining two left knobs depend on what mode is selected, and are described below. There is also a button that selects waveform (sine, square, triangle, sawtooth) in the first four modes, and shifts the keyboard an octave higher in the last two modes.
Mr. Sakitumi has played a whole-wide-world of instruments, (from drums, through guitar, past double-bass, and far beyond) in some of the most reputable acts in South Africa, including Krushed & Sorted, Max Normal, LARK, Goldfish, Freshly Ground, Battery 9, Closet Snare, Godessa, Gazelle and Teba. He’s played at festivals like: Pukkelpop (Belgium), Lowlands (Netherlands), Face fest (Finland) and Oppikoppi (South Africa). Basically.. He’s the sh*t 🙂
His music is in the style of beats and breaks, having been influenced by the likes of Ninja Tune, DJ Krush, Bonobo, RJD2 and DJ Shadow. The man recently returned from a European tour alongside EJ von Lyrik, and he’s planning another one for next August.
We’ll let you know the progress on the full album, till then, if you need evidence of the extent of his mad, mad skillys; make sure to check out this video of the man himself performing his track “Franklinstein”.
