Press Roll are a duo who perform new tunes carved from crate digging through jazz and funk records, electronic beats and bass lines, melded with live Trumpet, Rhodes, keyboards, Electric Guitar and bass.
Press Roll began when Ryan Beehre and Martin Emo began talking about great drum breaks over a blue cheese soup on a cold winter’s night. What followed was a regular Thursday night studio session and after they had 4 tunes, they had their first gig, booked by a friend without checking with Ryan or Martin. Since those early days in 2015, they have moved through three studios to their current base in Nelson, NZ. Ryan Beehre brings the experience of being a founder of Minuit, one of Aotearoa’s earliest live electronic band. He co-wrote and co-produce the gold selling “The 88” and has had tracks play on Grey’s Anatomy and Bones. Whilst known for his electronic skills as he masters tracks for artists from Detroit to Nashville, including Roots Manuva and Mel Parsons, his role in Press Roll brings out and opportunity to display his fluidity on the electric guitar and bass.
Martin Emo purchased his first jazz record at the age of 12 and hasn’t stopped in his desire to find the best tunes to DJ around New Zealand. Playing trumpet and piano from a young age led to tertiary study in classical music and a chance electro-acoustic paper led him into the internationally renowned Douglas Lilburn Sound Studios in 2000 where he met Pro Tools. The rest is history.
