About the Artist

Ableton, effect pedals, keyboards, electronic drumkit, midi controllers and an upright bass are the tools that Ness and Jakob of Kashoo use to create real, original, hybrid electronic music. Building from a rich background in traditional music to modern electronica, dubstep and glitch-hop, the two maestros work beats, samples and basslines off each other like two old timey banjo players jammin’ on the porch. Ness holds down the beats and melodies working with Ableton Live and an array of keyboards and controllers, while Jacob pummels the bins with his revolving kit of bass tools, from stand-up to midi controller. The feel is truly organic, while the sound is unmistakably electronic. Live performance is where its at for this band, and Kashoo has no problems keeping the floor grooving with their thick and fertile rhythms. From packed shows at the Spirit Bar and The Royal in Nelson, playing with the likes of Adham Shaikh, Dub FX and Drive If You Must, to tearing it up at the legendary Fandango Farms in the Okanagan to the infamous Beach Stage at Shambahla Music Festival, Kashoo are quickly becoming veterans of the live music scene in BC.
