Sounduo is pleased to announce the release of their debut album, Departures, on Made In Glitch – January 2012 – and will headline BLP/SFMO/JOLT Radio Present…Boca Shindig at the Funky Buddha Lounge & Brewey with Dusthead and Freq. on Saturday, February 18th and will perform on the BLP Campground Stage at AURA Music & Arts Festival in St. Cloud, FL on Friday, March 9th.
Equally melodic and heavy, this deep collection of eight tracks showcases their progression as producers and musicians, as well as the band’s unique take on electronic dub-hop in a studio production format. It’s everything you can expect from Sounduo – future dub to glitched funkiness with heavy beats and a healthy amount of bass that showcases the studio and programmed elements of the songs. These studio tracks form the basis for their improvised dub sets which are accompanied by live instrumentation and visual representations. Released under Made in Glitch alongside bass pioneers including Bass Science, Gladkill, NastyNasty and many more, Departures reflects Sounduo’s growing respect among bass communities across the country. While the album certainly features some huge bass drops, the band aims more for creating a futuristic glowing dub atmosphere in the tracks. From the heavy syncopated basslines of “Fever” to the dancehall-drum’n bass-lovestep vibe of “Shaka” to the jazz-fusion glitch dub of ‘”8 Degrees,” the album maintains the bass driven feel of dub music while staying relevant and consistent with the electronic sounds of the future.

I’ve been privileged enough to have two recent conversations with Matthew McDonald, one by phone and another by email, amidst the whirlwind surrounding the announcement of his return to Perpetual Groove, a band he helped start a decade ago but left for personal reasons in June of 2008. Our last interaction being a loose night in an old synagogue, better known in BLP lore as the Art Temple, when Matt supported and joined Brother Bean for a long night of musical mayhem in October of that same year; we spent a few minutes catching up before digging in to what transpired to spark their current evolution, his return to the public realm and what us Perps can expect out of PGoove 2.012.
