Ease & Taste
Production duo Ease & Taste consists of Mad Ease & Timmy Taste. With a combined wealth of production knowledge, experience in the studio, at events and gigs this powerhouse team built a name for themselves in the vibrant German Hip Hop scene through the 90’s. From Playing events alongside the likes of Afura, Das EFX, WuTang Clan & Absolute Banger to Live Radio shows these two have done it all. From these heights they expanded their skills; Taste plays guitar, bass, keyboards, raps & sings while Ease is a sound engineer, Dj & plays keyboard too. Now, after taking a break to build their families, they’re back and raring to release some fresh sounds.
Knowing each other since they were 13 years old has lead to many influences and some in obscure places, such as; playing in bands with punk drummers, teaming up with death metal bass players, jamming with beatles obsessed guitarists and of course the more obvious influences of American Hip Hop, German Rap, and the likes of Massive Attack, DJ Shadow, The Prodigy & Bonobo. This wide range of styles and genre makes for an enormous sound palette to play with and the influence on their sound is evident. However Ease & Taste manage to take these influences and combine them with their own unique voice to bring something new and exciting to the table. A genre defying mix of Hip Hop, Funk, Soul and Downtempo.
