John Ferrara (bassist for Consider the Source) had been working on solo material for quite some time but in doing so realized that some of the songs needed something more. His first thought was to contact an amazingly talented drummer and multi percussionist, Seth Moutal, to bounce ideas off of. Together they turned the songs into something truly unique, dynamic and powerful.
The music is a fusion of rock, jazz, world music, progressive rock, classical and minimalism. They cover a lot of ground with just two people. John plays bass and loops tapping and slap lines while playing lead over them often while playing midi bass foot pedals with his feet. Seth plays drum set, tabla and hand drums often mixing all three together at times. Between the two of them they manage a massive sound that ranges from slow, spacey songs to solo pieces to full force prog and jazz fusion epics.

“Ferrara has been admired for his compelling bass approach which evokes as much bodily emotion as it does passion, exquisitely combining South Indian, drum n bass and metal rhythms, has been called a “Slap Funk maestro with dazzling technique and and intense conception of groove.” – Sensible Reason
