DOMi & JD BECK have released their highly anticipated debut album NOT TiGHT, which is out now on Anderson .Paak’s new label APESHIT in partnership with Blue Note Records.
The duo—keyboardist DOMi Louna and drummer JD Beck—are joined on the album by a line-up of special guests which includes .Paak, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Herbie Hancock, Thundercat, Mac DeMarco, and Kurt Rosenwinkel. NOT TiGHT is available now digitally and on CD, with a vinyl release to follow on November 11.
Their music finds both humor and greatness in harmonic complexity and rhythmic shiftiness, abruptly adopting and ditching tempos, toying with time signatures, and sneaking extra beats into bridges.
Back in 2018, DOMi & JD BECK would meet when they were both invited to join an ensemble performing at the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) trade show and played in a room full of blaring instrumental demos, surrounded by a chaotic din. “It was so bad, we couldn’t hear anything,” JD laughs. They bonded over gauche keyboard effects and mom jokes, and a more audible jam that night sparked interest in working more.
“Hold on, just let go of who I used to be
Right now, I need you to take a chance on me
You’ve heard it before
So this time, I’ll let the actions speak
Right now, I need you to take a chance on me (Yeah)“– DOMi & JD BECK, Anderson .Paak (Take A Chance)
