Biography

Variable Unit is more than a band. It is a community dedicated to the musical merging of breaks, hip-hop, down tempo, dub, classical, rock and soul. As the name suggests, the members of Variable Unit fluctuate over time.

Although the personnel vary, there remains continuity in both the band’s sound and feel; with a consistent, musical consistency, where high production is the standard for the group’s evolution, the instrumentation is dedicated to the direction of the composition.

Matt Montgomery stands as the only musician on every Wide Hive full releases for a reason. He has an unusual rhythmic and melodic blend that resonates incredibly well on bass. He is a primary contributor to Seven Grain, Cold Flow, Handbook for the Apocalypse, Mahemystics and Mayhemystics OutBreaks. Tracks such as, Butterfly in the River Nile, Seven Grain, and Handbook for the Apocalypse bear his sonic touch.

DJ Zeph has strongly contributed to Seven Grain and Cold Flow. His edgy beats and cautious cutting instill a hardness found from the foundry of his hip-hop roots. For Zeph’s sound, check out tracks like Short Bread, R.J. Dub, Royal Jack and Break It On Down.

Kat Ouano’s caresses keys to create soundscapes. Her impressionistic flavor of classically minded patterns grace Seven Grain, Cold Flow and Handbook for the Apocalypse.

Handbook for the Apocalypse marked the arrival of versatile keyboardist Jacob Elijah Ajinsky on B-3 Organ and Synthesizers. Jacob’s contribution to Mahemystics and Mayhemystics OutBreaks saturated tracks with moody synthesizers and epic chordal raging.
