Vinyl Party offers a genre-bending sound that stays true to their influences while still pushing the boundaries. It is truly refreshing when such a band comes along and dispels a few conceptions and breaks a few genres along the way. The varied funk, hip-hop, soul, and rock elements that the group employs reflect the eclectic beach communities of Los Angeles in which it was formed and provides a unique listening experience for either the casual or studied music fan.
On their first EP, "Shuffle This", Vinyl Party provides something for everyone. Recorded over an inspired weekend at the historic Complex Studios in Santa Monica, “Shuffle This” proves to be a truly dynamic piece of work. Whether it is their intricate lyrics, their tightly wound solos, or their energetic instrumental sections, the songs keep listeners in balance with a seamless flow of unpredictable harmony. "Shuffle This" truly encapsulates the Vinyl Party vibe and will guide listeners through a genre transcending musical journey that is all it's own.
