Grand Analog is a group of record collectors, musicians and self-described beat junkies. You can easily find any of the GA crewDJingat various clubs aroundToronto.
The Grand Analog sound is a beautiful mess of rap'n'roll, dub ‘n’ soul. Each personality this collective brings something unique to the table. Odario and DJ Ofield blame their father, a reggae DJ from the 80s, for cursing them with the love of music, bass and trouble. Warren Bray is the secret sauce on bass, TJ Garcia sings and plays behind his drum kit and Aubrey McGhee is the sonic adventurer on saxophone. The band’s critically acclaimed albums, “Modern Thunder”, “Metropolis Is Burning” and “Calligraffiti”, and EPs “Love Is A Battlefield”, “Survival” and “Donna Summer” boast an infectious array of soundscapes. Their recent EP, “Survival”, featured guest artists ranging from Posdnuos of De La Soul to Shad, A Tribe Called Red producer 2oolman, Clairmont The Second and Adaline. The new EP, Donna Summer, features the effervescent Maiko Watson on vocals and a remix by JUNO nominated producer/DJ Muneshine. Grand Analog's restless feet inspire an extensive touring schedule. The live show adds soul to the bloodline along with frequent stage jams and off the wall spontaneity.
