B-Side Music Fridays w/ The TMRW PPL & Dr3am Ca$t
MCA Denver’s B-Side Music Fridays return in July with a fabulous line-up of amazingly talented local musicians ranging from surf rock and electronic to hip hop and dreamy soundscapes. On July 15 MCA Denver welcomes The TMRW PPL & Dr3am Ca$t. Get your crew together and come enjoy Friday nights this summer with crisp libations and solid grooves on one of Denver’s best rooftops.
When did The TMRW PPL come together?
The group originally started in Chicago in 2017, but when I (Parris) moved to Denver in 2018, I started the version of the group you see today, the duo of Isaac Teel and myself.
How long have you been performing in Denver? What is your favorite thing about the Denver music scene?
Our first gig in Denver was opening for the Robert Glasper Trio at Cervantes’ Masterpiece in December of 2019, and we’ve been performing across the city ever since (Mission Ballroom, Cervantes, Knew Conscious, Thriftcon, Red Rocks). My favorite thing about Denver’s music scene is its popularity among the citizens of Denver. Most of the people that live here go out to see live music several times a week, sometimes several shows on the same night. It’s a great environment to be a professional musician because there are always people at your shows, dancing and having a good time!
Where do you find inspiration for your music?
My inspiration comes from my peers and my good friends that are releasing amazing music. Hearing their growth and seeing the reception it gets really inspires me to find and develop my own style.
Who are some artists/creators that are influential to your musical practice?
Artists like A Tribe Called Quest, J Dilla, Anderson.Paak, Robert Glasper, Kamasi Washington, and Roy Hargrove are very influential in what we do.
Music can be an immersive experience. How would you describe your sound as a texture, a scent, or a taste?
I would say that our sound is a perfect marriage of Velvet, Egyptian Musk, and Earthy undertones.
What should we expect from your performance?
You should expect to see a combination of high-energy, soulful sounds and immersive live-production displayed through our Afro-Futuristic lens.
What are you excited about for this year?
We are excited to finally start releasing our original music! Our first single Chunky Diesel was released on June 24th and has already landed on several Spotify playlists!
Embedded in the memory of a lost game cartridge playable only in the 9th dimension are the duo of Dr3am Ca$t. "Ness" on synths and "N0bahdee" on drums are your tour guides through digital soundscapes unknown. Taking influences from anime, video games, and only the finest snacks Dr3am Ca$t forge fresh sonic worlds that fully immerse listeners in both the nostalgia and euphoria of escaping our mortal realm.
