Basa is like a sponge bath, or like wearing a leisure suit. Its deja vu.
Eric Corbett and Darrell Smith have been exploring the space between jazz,
pop, electro, and soul; trying to discover a fresh take. The strong narratives
gravitate toward stories of love. From the frustrated love that never quite
works out in "touche", to the hopeful story of love being enough in "starlight";
the thoughts are witty and deeper than they appear at first glance. Each
listen reveals another layer of tone and thought. The approach is sensual but
not sexual, intelligent but not intellectual, hip but not trendy, future and retro
at the same time. Textures of tone wash over each expression and
moment. The band is deep rooted in jazz, but shares a love for old school
funk and soul, that euro electro sound, and urban rhythms and beats. Basa's
hope is to be the soundtrack for the best times of your life.
Serve chilled and enjoy.
