East Meets West - Audio Underground
Audio Underground is a collective of session musicians based out of the Wall, NJ studio "Original Union Records" fronted by DJ Chris J. Smith. It is primarily an electronic project, but heavily influenced by a wide variety of world genres such as latin, hip-hop and dub reggae. The outfit blends both samples and performance to create a musical hybrid consisting of both technological savvy as well as tasteful natural percussive and melodic elements. AU is putting special emphasis on looping and set based live production as of late.
