MC: Bastian Killjoy

Xandepic was formed by Jezz Collard whose goal was to put together a 'live' Drum n Bass flavoured band with elements of Jazz/Hip Hop/Funk/Reggae/Dub.
Every sound was to be manipulated in real-time without the assistance of loops or programming.
The aim was to stay true to the complex rhythmic structure, energy and timing of classic DnB while putting on a totally live performance which allowed an audience to see every sound being played live.
The first elements used were bass and drums to create a solid foundation for every track in a live setting with. This was going to be fun. :)
Another component we wanted to add to our sound was live saxophone. We needed someone who was not only talented but experimental... The crazy but amazing jazz improv style combined with some futuristic effects was the element needed to solidify a new type of sound which was very close to becoming what is known as "Xandepic".
The next element on the list, more bass! A second bassist gave us a thicker sound and allowed for a more complex rhythmic sections.
Now we were after a female who could compliment the dark aspect of our music with beautiful, powerful & intelligent vocal melodies.
Unique soul/jazz influenced vocals and cleaver lyrical content instantly gave the instrumental group a whole new flavour.
The cherry on top was finding an MC to work with the vocalist. Someone who was capable of juggling between hip-hop & DnB styles of mc'ing to add the feel of an old school Drum n Bass gig when required.
An instant chemistry formed and the combination of mc'ing and beautiful vocals became a crucial part of the sound.
Xandepic was born.
