These four outstanding instrumentalists live and breathe their passion for and music through riveting live performances!

Dub Spencer & Trance Hill play laid-back, instrumental almost . And they play it with virtuosity, with washed-out grooves, breaks, hints of other tracks and all so thrillingly slooooowly that they’re sure to lose any shoot-out.
