Blacks' Myths is a duo from Washington, D.C. comprised of Luke Stewart on bass and Warren G. "Trae" Crudup III on drums. The group's latest release, 'Blacks' Myths II' collects thirteen tracks from a marathon recording session in the summer of 2019.
Two of D.C.'s most active and versatile musicians, Stewart and Crudup build symbiotic rhythmic pieces by locking into something both hypnotic and free. Their collaboration is redefining the rhythm section by dismantling its tropes and injecting unpredictability as well as a sense of vibrancy and freedom. The group's debut, Blacks' Myths (Atlantic Rhythms, 2018), established a space for ambience and eruption, building hypnotic rhythmic structures and exploratory soundscapes.
"On Blacks' Myths, Stewart and Crudup craft evocative, Afro-futuristic grooves, frequently disrupted by eruptions of feedback dissonance or languid soundscapes." -- Down Beat Magazine
