DJ Limbs and Butter release their debut single “Mad Jazz Noodle” b/w “The Wimp” on June 18th, 2010.
A collaboration that started after meeting at a Chicago loft party, the two bring their unique experiences and influences to the table. Through collaborations over the internet, and meetups in Curitiba, Brazil and Chicago, Illinois they have recorded songs that span across age, location and genre.
The results are “Mad Jazz Noodle”, a dance record that
shifts between downtempo and drum n bass, and “The
Wimp” a poignant tale sung over an electronic fury. These samples present a small section of the musical palette on their upcoming album “The Many Flavors of Bittersweet”.
Ruth’s songwriting background in rock and RnB, mixed with her native Brazilian rhythms and knack for improvisation brings an exotic, jazzy vocal melody to DJ Limbs’ textured beats. It is easy to hear her fine-tuned sensibilities from many years of experience in top Chicago studios and producing bands in Brazil.
On the production-side, DJ Limbs seamlessly combines influences from hiphop, jazz, funk, drum n bass and EDM creating an organic yet futuristic sound. His drive to experiment with new technology and across genres brings Ruth’s songs to new spaces.
The results are tracks that appeal to a wide-range of genre aficionados and general music lovers alike. Niches that vary from downtempo to dubstep, indie hiphop and nu-jazz find a recognizable sonic quality in the music to please their tastes.
