For Fans Of...El Michels Affair, Adrian Younge, Roy Ayers, Karriem Riggins, The
Roots, Khruangbin. Deep, Hard Hitting Soul-Jazz Meets Dub Instrumental Analog Grooves For Your Psyche. In few words, Doctor
Bionic can be described as Instrumental b-movie psych-hop. But that doesn't tell the whole story. Doctor Bionic is the brainchild of
Cincinnati's Jason Grimes, formerly the producer of the hip-hop group MOOD (with emcees Main Flow & Donte). Having grown up in
the Scribble Jam scene here in Cincy, and running in circles that included artists like Hi-Tek & Talib Kweli, Grimes' music has continued
to evolve from sample-based loops, to live instrumentation with deep layering; provided by a revolving door of local musicians. The
common thread in most Doctor Bionic tracks are the neck snapping drum breaks, but the tempo adjustments and varying
instrumentation lends itself to a collection of non-genre specific songs - held together in unity by the flawless drums, often provided by
Josiah Wolf (of indie-rock band Why?). The result of these recording sessions are a masterclass in musical juxtaposition. Spacious yet
clustered. Futuristic nostalgia. Ideal for long car rides or setting the vibe during a laid back gathering of friends. Also Available From
