Badbadnotgood remixes Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – Shame


Rappcats exclusive: BBNG has remixed Freddie Gibbs & Madlib’s “Shame” and with the approval of the MC and Producer, the MP3 is included here as a bonus track.

BADBADNOTGOOD is a trio of musicians – Matthew Tavares on keys, Chester Hansen on bass, and Alex Sowinski on drums. They formed at Toronto’s Humber College Music Performance program in 2011, and quickly started changing the rules of what an improvised jazz group should be, and what hip-hop music could sound like.

The group released two collections of music on the web – BBNG EP and BBNG 2 – and won praise from the four corners of the globe and collaborated with Frank Ocean, Earl Sweatshirt, MF Doom, Pharaoh Monch and RZA among many. They signed to Innovative Leisure last year, and now released their first full length of original material on III.

BBNG live this week in Europe:

Wed 7 – The Exchange – Bristol

Bad Bad Not Good (BBNG) is three guys from Toronto who first caught our attention years ago with a live interpretation of Madvillain & Doom’s “Supervillain Theme”, “Fazers” and “Vomitspit”. These days, they’re signed to Innovative Leisure and have just released their first 12-inch: “Flashing Lights” b/w “UMW” music on one side, an etching on the other.

On paper, they’re a jazz trio. In actual practice, they’re musicians who do whatever it takes, imaginative electronic beat makers.

Their album BBNG2 is available below – includes a digital booklet of photos, hi-res album art and liner notes.
