Lespecial wsg Cypher Offical Road To Disc Jam Pre-Party @ Nietzsche's | Buffalo | NY | United States

lespecial
lespecial carve their own sonic path in modern music,
creating their signature blend of “heavy future groove”. The
power trio’s fresh synthesis of varied and divergent
influences doesn’t underestimate the listener, reflecting a
post-modern cultural climate in which fans have space on
their aural palette for J Dilla, Radiohead, King Crimson and
Fela Kuti. Veering from hip-hop to metal, prog to house,
pensive indie-rock to apocalyptic dub, leaving room for
head banging and hip swaying alike, while still presenting a
unified sound and vision.
