Black Space Odyssey
The Brooklyn bred live / electronic hip-hop quartet, Black Space Odyssey, pilots their listeners ( passengers ) into an endless horizon of thunderous 808's, wailing analog synths, psychedelic lyricism and an itchy auto - filter trigger finger. Fortified with the beckoning of live drums and guitar with an effects run worthy of an air strip. The Kushstorm is the mission, the motto, and the movement. It'd be nothing short of appropriate to introduce BSO with their debut "Kushstorm EP", set for a digital release on August 1st of 2016 and it only starts there. To witness Black Space Odyssey live is a voyage in itself. Ambushing the stage from a barrage of medicinal smoke and rocks glasses, the room's energy finds its niche at the pinnacle of your curiosity. The pilots of BSO have retracted the landing gear and lifted curtain to an in-flight movie of synchronized visuals and relentless groove.
