Abstract Collective / Press

“The Abstract Collective has a dedicated vibraphone player included in their lineup; when you notice this, you immediately know that these guys aren't your average hip hop group (I mean, really, how cool is that?). Along with the vibraphone, the Abstract Collective bring a full band to the stage which includes drums, bass guitar and keyboards.The two MCs for the group, Ari Max Wechsler and Matt Melsen, take turns accompanying their fellow musicians on stage in a pleasant harmony of words and sound. The group has more of a positive bend to them, with lyrics spoken intelligently about making positive change. During their set, the group performed a cover by Telefon Tel Aviv and had a guest MC join them on stage.”
