In the steamy basement of an otherwise unremarkable house in Baltimore, "Fake Flowers Real Dirt" forges their mix of genres from the funk/dope characteristic (e.g.
funk, hip-hop): driving skank reggae moves to frenetic breakbeat/jungle, joined together with a series of quick jazz changes. Simple melodic lines and hooks give way to solos, with space.
FFRD's efforts began when singer Billy D William marshaled the forces of an accomplished group of veterans from the DMV music scene. Their goal is nothing less than sonic nirvana - obtained through the melding of diverse musical traditions into a form greater than the sum of its parts (a form deserving a new name (and wikipedia page)). The group embraces the style nouveau while never forgetting the trivial inequality: 11 seasoned players, still on their way 'round the block.
FFRD transcends superlatives; their awesomeness is matched only by their modesty. From the basement in a house in Baltimore, MD to your ears, "The flyest and the most, as real as non-fiction."
