Drummer/producer Steve Bryant has made a career out of bringing live musicianship to electronic music performance. As the touring drummer for several notable acts including Benzos, Michna, Eliot Lipp, and Young & Sick, he’s provided a bridge between the unyielding precision of programmed beats & loops and the elasticity of live performance and improvisation.
Although trained in jazz, Bryant has gravitated towards hip-hop and drum & bass in both his playing and production styles. While keeping busy touring, he has been putting out his own music under the name Cru the Dynamic. Today he announces his new EP, The Quick and has shared the captivating, footwork-inspired first single “New Things”. The Quick EP is out October 27 on Detroit label Young Heavy Souls (Eliot Lipp, Mux Mool, Blockhead).
Cru the Dynamic on “New Things”:
“‘New Things’ was the first song I wrote for my upcoming EP, and really set the pace for the entire project.”
