Teeko & B. Bravo
Bay Area mainstays Teeko and B.Bravo have hefty resumes.
Bravo is a 2010 graduate of Red Bull Music Academy with releases on Brownswood, Frite Nite and Ernest Endeavors. His tune “Computer Love” was named one of 2009’s best tracks by Benji B (BBC Radio 1). He’s shared the stage with artists like Chromeo, Dam-Funk, Flying Lotus and serenaded crowds across the world with his bass heavy outerspace boogie and dirty grinding synth grooves at festivals like SXSW, Detroit Electronic Music Festival, and Sonar in Barcelona.
Teeko, creator of SF’s infamous 4ONEFUNK crew, has been a key player in the next generation of the Bay Area’s Turntablist scene and has been called “the most insane & creative turntablist I have ever worked with" by Mark Ronson, who featured him on his Record Collection album. Recent years have had Teeko looking towards production with his debut album Turn Off The Dark and his collaboration with B.Bravo as The Starship Connection, churning out cosmic, sludgy electronic funk music on Salva’s Fritenite label.
The duo's deft ear and unparalleled musical credentials inspired Bastard Jazz to enlist them for their second expedition into Tempo Dreams. "We wanted to represent soulful music being made by our piers from all over the world," says B. Bravo "Artists from California to New York, Canada, London, Germany all with different modern styles but sharing a common thread of being influenced by funk and soul."
