The Emerald City has both produced and influenced some of the finest musical minds of the late century. From Ray Charles to Jimi Hendrix, Seattle has served as inspiration for the imaginative, the troubled, the pioneers, and the innovators. From this creative mecca has arisen THE NEW LAW, the music duo who put forth their passion of sound into a unique blend of organic and synthetic evolving soundscapes that feature dreamlike sax, dusty samples, soaring synths, and pulsing drum machines.
The group comprises Adam Straney and Justin Neff, who met during college while working at a movie theater. Adam began his musical career playing guitar, bass guitar and drums in punk bands throughout his youth. In college he discovered a new love for Drum ‘n’ Bass music, which soon led to DJing and producing. Justin has played the piano and saxophone in jazz, funk and rock bands since childhood. For more than half a decade, The New Law has combined these influences and backgrounds which have resulted in the deep, hypnotic, instrumental mind-warping music that has become its signature sound.

"If you remember the movie HARDWARE, the album cover might get you thinking of a sort of Bladerunner apocalypse sound. You might be right, but The New Law is way better than such a simplification. Really nice work!"
