WBGO The Checkout Presents DOMi & JD Beck
February 12 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$5 – $10
DOMi & JD Beck are a duo collaboration between keyboardist Domitlle Degalle and drummer JD Beck. Their sound of up-tempo future-sonic jazz meets with hip-hop breakbeats, luscious synth harms, and absolute virtuosity. The duo have become one of the internet’s viral addictions, attracting interest from Thundercat, Will.i.am, and Skrillex.
The duo first met at NAMM through their collaborator “Sput” a.k.a. Robert Searight II of Snarky Puppy. JD Beck is a 16 year old drummer and producer from Dallas who began his drum career at age 8 and started producing aged 12. JD performs as a side-man with Thundercat, Andreson Paak, Jon Bap, Anna Wise, and Mono Neon. He is sponsored by Vic Firth.
DOMi is the youngest woman to the world’s top keyboard innovators and is sponsored by Yamaha Synth Artist and Spectrasonics. A piano graduate of the National Conservatory of Paris (CNSM), Domi continues her studies in Boston at Berklee College of Music under a full Presidential Scholarship and has performed alongside Robert Glasper, Mac Miller, Thundercat, Louis Cole, Jason Palmer, MonoNeon, Ghost-Note, Justin Brown, Mike Mitchell, Mark Guiliana, and Anomalie.
Celebrated as one of the most exciting young forces to the future-sonic-jazz movement, DOMi & JD Beck can be caught live with headline dates internationally and are soon to release their first debut album this 2019.
