The science of delivering a tasteful combination of top notch production with a crushing live band. S&C aims to bring electronic, hip hop, and beat junkies together for an audible experience unlike anything you've ever heard.
Formed in August 2011, Shapes & Colors emerged from the dust of funk-fusion band, "Raoul Duke" (2007-2011), and began knocking down all barriers within the Live Electronic Music community.
Consisting of Ramsey Zabout aka RamZ (production/ableton), Matt Rezetko (drums/percussion/samples), Jeremy Williams (bass/moog/EFX), Lucas Ellman (EWI/Sax/EFX) and Dan Cantone (guitar/slide/EFX); Shapes & Colors continue to evolve and develop their unique blend of electronic production and live instrumentation.
The squad delivers a collage of Glitch, Funk, Electro Soul, Down-Tempo & Hip Hop beats. Lyrical samples from our favorite MC's are often found within a S&C set, along with growling bass lines, crackin' live drums, and captivating melodies. Shapes & Colors is a live electronic project brought to you by members of Raoul Duke, IndigoSun, Sam Sinclair Trio, and orchestrated by RamZ. The concept is to build a live band around well-crafted electronic production; blending the best of both worlds.
