BADBADNOTGOOD – Artist You Should Know

Written by

BADBADNOTGOOD are three young jazz enthusiasts based out of Toronto.

They bring to the table interesting jazz covers of Kanye West, Odd Future, James Blake, Gangstarr and Tribe Called Quest tracks.

What makes these guys really good at what they do is their ability to keep it simple — to set a mellow groove and then take into a whole new direction.

It’s really great to see artists like BBNG and Robert Glasper push their sound to a younger audience and keep the elements of jazz still intact, especially in an age where MPC’s and samplers seem to be the new tool of choice of young producers.


They’ve offered their second album as a free download on their website. Grab it!
