Elastic Bond

Support 88Nine And This Artist:

Elastic Bond brings an urban edge with a tropical Miami twist to the scene. With a name that gives reference to an atomic physics concept, they are able to find common ground and stick together despite a myriad of influences, all while redefining existing boundaries. Pleasantly surprising velvety vocals combined with unexpectedly awesome and evocative bilingual rap is reminiscent of Lauryn Hill meets the Roots meets Yerba Buena. On some songs, blaring trumpets transport you to a sultry street in Brooklyn rather than the sun kissed beaches of Miami. Other tracks bring you right back to town with Latin rhythms, drums and flavor. You never know where you will end up with these guys, but you are guaranteed to like it. The raw honesty of their feel good-lyrics are a clear indicator of the passion for music that each member shares. Sprinkling drum and bass, funk, and soul in their songs, the hardworking creative lineup includes Andres Ponce (keyboards/samplers/musical direction), Sofy Encanto (vocals), MC. Orion (vocals), Buffalo Brown (guitar), El David (trumpet), Manuel “Papayo” Corao (percussion). Elastic Bond aims to express their personal stories in each and every tune. “We do this through mixing retro sounds with sounds of today and producing this sound with an approach of mixing electronica and samplers with organic instrumentation and songwriting,” explained Ponce of their process.
