Boosh & the Dip
In Edmonton AB Canada, one of these leaders is the MC known as Boosh, who has collected a band of some of the finest improvisational musicians this side of the river, to create a live performing hip-hop experience slicker than thieves in the night. The fusion of blues, roots, punk, and jazz keeps the crowd on their toes, while the heavy production influences of legends like Timbaland, Dr. Dre, Rick Rubin and Pharrell Williams give their recorded works a true-to-form hip-hop feel, which is all self-produced by Boosh in house. The rapper/producer is ambitious and is looking to one day be considered a legend of the game himself.

Jordan, who plays guitar and keyboard, is the co-founder of Boosh & the Dip. The group was originally put together as a live performing act centered around the first makeshift album Jordan and Boosh wrote and recorded together; a record given the suiting title of: “Adventures of the Talented & Lazy”. Bob Howse came into the picture shortly before the first album was finished, and he helped to lay down some classic material from their debut. He is the lead guitar. Next came Chris, who is Jordan’s brother, the drummer. A diva and art purist that has helped shape the group's live sound more to the ways of jazz and punk. Last but not least came JP, the bass player with pure intuition and the funk of a very special white boy.

They have pulled together in the studio with Boosh to create a new offering: the River City Riot. This two-part album set to release Fall/Winter 2015/16 respectively, will showcase the new direction and progress of Boosh & the Dip. Stay tuned!
