Philadelphia's funktronica powerhouse, Tweed, is filling dance floors with their high-energy fusion of funk, rock, and electronica. Just as their namesake fabric of mingling colors and textures, Tweed has interwoven a psychedelic web of high energy performance and improvisation. Their collaboration can take listeners from multi-layered visions through the psyche to sweaty, raging dance parties driven by their own incessant beat. With several national tours, crossing over 145 shows in 2016, they have proven they can bring the party anywhere they go.
"Wax Future's name mirrors their sound. Vinyl records are colloquially called "wax", and in the studio the duo fill their music with their own organic instrumental samples. The duo's rendition of the blues, jazz, rock or funk is then throttled into the future with melodic synthesizer work and crisp, hard-hitting drum tracks. Their production style is progressive while also harkening back to original experiments into electronic production by conventional musicians i.e. Pink Floyd.
Wax Future makes live electronic music with tasteful improvisation and deep roots in hip-hop and soul."
The band is made up of Connor Hansell (synths & production), Keith Wadsworth (lead guitar & synthesizer), and Gralin Hughes (live digital art). They honed their live performances through slots at F.A.R.M fest alongside of Papadosio and Eoto, and several headlining and support slots in their hometown alongside heavy hitters MiTiS, Mat Zo, and Haywyre. They enjoy the daytime as well as late night where you may have recently caught them supporting Random Rab, and Tauk at Midsummer Night Dream. Their 2nd EP "Keep the Memories" Drops 8.28 via Funkadelphia Recordings.
