Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez aren’t just master players, they’re musical mad scientists. Between 2008 and 2013 their NY-based duo Buke and Gase was batting at just under an album a year…until they suddenly disappeared. Their namesake instruments (buke/baritone ukelele & gase/guitar-bass) have since taken a backseat in Buke and Gase’s recordings in favor of innovative electronic devices, ushering in a new wave of music from Dyer and Sanchez.
Cut down from more than sixty songs and hundreds of hours of raw recording completely different from anything we’ve heard from them before, Buke and Gase almost renamed the group what has become their latest album title, Scholars. Scholars is a deep investment in electronic music, a proof of Buke and Gase’s aural academia, and you can enjoy the twelve new songs on Friday, starting right now with “Derby”!
