There are currently two bands called The Let Go. One of them is from Seattle, WA and the other one is from Utrecht, The Netherlands.
THE LET GO is a hip hop group comprised of two emcees, Type and Kublakai, and one producer, Captain Midnite. All members were born and raised in Seattle, WA, where they all currently reside. The combination of their talents came together naturally for the three friends and each member has something distinctively unique they bring to the group: Type is known for his satirical content and smash mouth punchlines, Kublakai made a name for himself by having catchy hooks and genuine style, while Captain Midnite brings the art of true composition back to boom bap hip hop, with crackin drums and bold sample chops in a beat bound to have at least three change-ups before the tracks ends. Keep an eye out for the trio’s debut full length album TOMORROW HANDLES THAT, set to be released in late 2008.
The Let Go is a four piece band from Utrecht, The Netherlands. The band consists of lead singer & guitarist Rogier Werschkull, guitarist Ron Bos, Jacco Rustenburg on bass and Roeland van der Put on drums.
It all began.. when Roeland and Rogier first met at an open mic evening in 2001. They started playing together in a band called Traveller, which also consisted of Ron on bass. After some short lived succes their lead singer decided to quit the band, leaving Rogier and Roeland to form The Let Go. After a year or so Ron once again joined them, this time on guitar. Jacco Rustenburg joined in 2008, replacing long-time bandmember Joost Woltering.
As far as the music is concerned, it's what everyone brings to the table. There is no concept or template that needs to be followed, it just has to fall into place. Musical influences range from alternative 90's groups (Radiohead, Blur) to contemporaries like Bloc Party or Franz Ferdinand, to name a few. It's all about originality and familiarity, and finding that sweet spot in between.
In 2004 The Let Go released their first self-produced and recorded EP called Stardust. They are currently in the process of releasing their second EP called Bermuda. - www.theletgo.nl
