Rooted in a friendship formed in 2004, foi oi oi and What the Bleep are tag team partners hailing from Ohio. “Ragga jungle” is the most accurate label used to describe what they play – as they are junglists that lean toward reggae-influenced styles – but they truthfully are not bound by any specific genre.Instead, their focus is on a positive bass music experience with undertones of ragga and dubwise. Their mindfulness of a dancefloor’s needs is reflected in their diverse selection of drum & bass, juke, footwork, roots dubstep, dub reggae, dancehall, and more.
As their individual musical tastes matured over the years, their duo performance evolved into something much greater than the sum of the parts. Recently they released another iteration of their widely-popular annual mixtape in honor of their Detroit Electronic Music Festival tradition. Each year they attend the festival, perform at afterparties, and spread their junglist sound as “brothers”. This year’s CD release took on a new greatly-refined form, fluidly transitioning through a surprising multiplicity of sound: “Feelings for Detroit Vol. 6: Water Sound”. And in July 2012, to open the floodgates for new ears to experience a refreshing bass music experience, they are embarking on a CD-release East Coast mini-tour: “foi oi oi & What the Bleep’s Water Sound Voyage”.
