Bystander is my alter ego of hardcore funky electronica. Released
in 2000, this CD was featured prominently in MTV Road Rules.
The music infuses elements of Drum-n-Bass, Techno,
Reggae, and Funk all with a unifying
B-3 organ throughout. Innocent Bystander transcends the
space time continuum from 70's funk to the new millennium by perfectly
melding the computerized sounds of the new electronica with the raw human
feel of old school soul and funk.
It's as if Sly Stone and Jimmy Smith
were genetically combined with the Chemical Brothers and
Fat Boy Slim! There is even a cover of Sly Stone's "Sing
A Simple Song". The result is music for your mind and your ass. It's
Medeski, Martin, and Wood on a futuristic tour around
only certainty throughout the universe is that funk will find a way, and
the masses shall groove."
