LiveHuman — the trio of bassist Andrew Ross Kushin, drummer Albert Mathias, and DJ Quest on the 1s and 2s — have been together for twenty years and are set to release their latest album, ScratchBop, this coming January on Cosmic Records. For twenty years, their integration of live improvisation incorporating turntables have garnered great appeal. Twenty years later, the concept still seems to be working out. This is certainly true in their new single, “Magic For Beginners”, complete with a trippy animated video from bassist Kushin. Check it out after the jump.
DJ Quest – Turntables
