If the recent trends continue, Denver may become a hot-spot for electronic music on the national scene. Among the newest class of artists in the genre is The Biz, a trio consisting of Tim Santos, Phil Buck, and Leigh Bernstein. Their debut full-length The Ancient Future hit the internet just last week and is available on the group’s homepage as a “pay-what-you-want” download.
The Biz manages to maintain a certain organic sound throughout the 70+ minute record. From acoustic-drum and horn samples to non-sampled bass grooves, The Ancient Future feels like a sexy soul record turned sideways. “Infinite Light” and “The NEXUS” stand out as two tracks that are as smooth as they are inventive.
