More live than most electronic bands, and more electronic than most live bands, Grey Tapes is a beat-maker and producer collective based in Newcastle upon Tyne. The group consists of Mr Blazey, Bert Verso, Calum Howard and Bain, with Dan Potter on live drums.
Grey Tapes endeavour to keep live electronic music truly live – avoiding clicks, sequencers or backing tracks in favour of real musical instruments and live samples. Everything you hear is played manually by a finger, an arm or leg.
Each member of Grey Tapes is a music producer in their own right, giving the live band a wealth of electronic music to perform. Their instrumentation includes double bass, live drums, homemade midi controllers, synthesisers, piano, samplers, vocals, drum machines and omnichord. Grey Tapes’ music traces the lines between hip hop, trip hop, jazz, electronica, ambient and lo-fi experimental pop.
