Sounduo is a post-dub, audio/visual live performance project. Their sound features poly-rhythmic hip-hop grooves, vintage samples, soulful vocals, ambient soundscapes, live instruments, and heavy synth bass passed through a scuzzed-out dub filter and mangled using the latest in glitch technology. Sounduo's performances have an emphasis on live remix's and dub versions of their studio tracks, live drums, plenty of improvisation, and a synced lighting and visuals show. With the addition of their "unofficial"
third member, Andrew Byrd, Sounduo's live presence is a force not to be reckoned with. Andrew seamlessly syncs a plethora of glowing LED lights, projections, and 3d mapped structures, with Sounduo's music to create an intoxicating audio/visual experience and environment that regularly leaves attendees with their minds blown.
Masters of creating a futuristic glowing dub atmosphere while maintaining the bass-driven, party-vibe feel of bass music, Sounduo has showcased their abilities to completely capture crowds throughout multiple extensive Southeast tours and at some of the biggest music festivals in the region. Whether through performing at Ultra, Blackwater, Aura, Impulse, Winter Music Conference, or Art Basel, sharing stages with artists such as Big Gigantic, Elliot Lipp, Zoogma, Archnemesis, and Dr. Fameus, headlining club dates, or being featured on prominent EDM blogs, Sounduo's buzz for their live performances and studio productions have steadily grown and each year promises to be leaps forward for these electronic and visual dub pioneers.
