Best Korea is an electrifying 80s Outrun/Synthwave electronic music duo hailing from Bozeman, Montana. Formed in 2016, Best Korea consists of multi-instrumentalists, vocalists, and producers Dacotah Stordahl and Raymond Jimenez – two members of the indie synthpop band Sigmund. Inspired by the explosive popularity of the 80s-themed Synthwave and Outrun genres, Best Korea is a fiery mix of huge, driving dance beats, hammering analog synth lines, and anachronistic snippets of popular culture. Their music inspires instant nostalgia, and simultaneously fuses retro styling cues with the heavy beats and experimental sound design of modern electronic dance music.
Best Korea’s unique style is the key to their bombastic live performances. Surrounded onstage by synthesizers, drum machines, percussion pads, guitars, and unusual custom electronic instruments, Stordahl and Jimenez demonstrate that electronic music truly can be performed completely live – and that it can be done in a way that is just as dynamic and visually exciting as any non-electronic live band.
Jackson Lamar currently runs Seldom Music in Bozeman, MT. He's traveled the world playing music, sharing the stage with many of the world's elite DJs and performers. He champions the old way of disk jockeying, where every mix is done by ear and spells are cast from vast books of CDs & records. Likes playing extended sets (3 hrs plus) because it allows you to stretch out time and tell a much deeper story.
Jackson believes the best moments in music are when a person might not like or understand what they are hearing.....but their body cannot stop moving to it. The body knows.
$12 - $15
