Grand Analog

Featured Musicians

Grand Analog is a group of record collectors, musicians and self-described beat junkies whose sound is a beautiful mess of rap ‘n’ roll, dub ‘n’ soul. We were thrilled to have them not only on the Series Six Labels but perform at our Series Launch Bash in May.

Their critically acclaimed albums, “Modern Thunder”, “Metropolis Is Burning” and “Calligraffiti”, boast an infectious array of soundscapes that “sweeten its hip-hop cocktail with dubby reggae, wah-wah funk and Bo Diddley beats.”

Odario and DJ Ofield blame their father, a reggae DJ from the 80s, for cursing them with the love of music, bass and trouble. Catalist was also born into a musical family, inheriting a vintage collection of analog keyboards and an uncanny resemblance to Frank Zappa. Warren Bray is the secret sauce on bass and TJ Garcia trips the light fantastic behind his drum kit.

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. Over the last eight years, Grand Analog has left its mark on prestigious showcases and festivals such as the Great Escape Festival, SXSW, the Reeperbahn Festival, CMJ, Pop Montreal, the Halifax Pop Explosion and CMW plus sharing stages with such artists as the Roots, Little Dragon, the Herbaliser, K-OS, Big Boi, UB40 and Kardinall Offishall.

There have been over 40 placements of Grand Analog songs in films, television and commercials including such U.S. and Canadian television series as 90210, Criminal Minds, NCIS: Los Angeles and many more. They have also written the theme song for the feature film Low Riders starring Eva Longoria and Melissa Benoist which will be premiering at the L.A. Film Festival in June 2016, and the animated adult television series Mother Up!
