B. Bravo returns to Bastard Jazz with a new single alongside longtime collaborator and soulful chanteuse Reva DeVito. “Fly Bye” – inspired by the dreamy notion of hopping on a private plane with Pilot Reva and flying away from everything – surrounds Reva’s vocals with ambient pads, a Dilla-inspired beat, and an irresistibly groovy bass line to transport you to a party in the sky and beyond.
The funk flows in LA-based producer B. Bravo (aka Adam Mori). Born and raised in California, with roots in Japan, his signature style of Cosmic Funk and late night synth grooves have made him a favorite among DJ’s, dancers, and music lovers worldwide. A tasteful producer, sought after remixer, party rocking DJ, master of the talkbox, band leader, and alumnus of the Red Bull Music Academy, Mr. Bravo is an accomplished performer both at home and abroad.
Heavily inspired by the synthesizer-enhanced R&B grooves of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, B. Bravo debuted in 2009 with the seven-track “Analog Starship” EP. A deeper impression was made the following year with a shorter extended play, “Computa Love,” the title track of which was supported by BBC DJ Benji B months prior to release. Additional strides were made with a batch of singles and EPs that followed throughout the next few years, as Bravo toured and performed at numerous festivals around the world.
His relationship with the Brooklyn tastemaker label, Bastard Jazz Recordings, began in 2016 with the 7” single “I’m For Real / Stay The Night’ (which notably featured a Mr. Carmack remix of the latter). Bravo’s debut solo LP quickly followed with 2017’s critically acclaimed “Paradise” – which shone a light on vocalists and frequent collaborators Reva DeVito, Trailer Limon, Kissey, and Lauren Faith – with a remix album appearing six months later.
Additional solo releases have found a home on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings and Frite Nite, while production credits have appeared on releases from the legendary Blue Note Records, HW&W, All City, Friends of Friends, and Tokyo Dawn. B. Bravo has worked on projects with the likes of Salva, Mr. Carmack, Teeko, DJ Lean Rock, Reva DeVito, Lauren Faith, and Kate Stewart.
Having toured throughout the US, Latin America, Europe and Asia, he’s shared the stage with performers like Erykah Badu, Flying Lotus, D?M-FunK, Hudson Mohawke, at a world-spanning range of festivals such as Detroit Electronic Music Fest, HARD LA, Northern Nights, Laneway Singapore, Sonar in Barcelona, Snowglobe, SXSW, Basscoast, Do-Over, Low End Theory, Boiler Room, and Soulection.
After 2020’s “Cosmic Mind” EP, B. Bravo once again returns to Bastard Jazz with his new album, “Vizionz,” out Spring, 2022.
