After seven years of touring the west coast of North America, from Tijuana to Vancouver Island, BURNT has refined their sound down to raw vocals, bass-heavy soul and a rock-steady groove. Primo, Danny, and Robie Dreads music is pure California underground - elements of rebellious reggae, old skool ska, dirty punk and true hip hop are mashed together to make for constant good times on the dance floor. This three piece band from San Francisco is stoked to bring their unique and positive vibration to the stage and your backyard! The rhythm tracks for 'La Quinta' were recorded live, in our basement practice dungeon, below the streets of the Tenderloin District, San Francisco. The resulting mixes were then seasoned with analog tape goo at The Old School Studio in Caspar, CA, on the Mendocino coast. The album features some searing lead guitar work from Smokin' Joe Ransom. Nathan McCoy (Rivel) contributed keys to 'Small Dreams'. and the legendary Tom Cook (of The Debonaires and The Revivers) did some organ work on 'Do It'. Burnt's fifth album brings head-nodding sounds of hope, and is the result of a minimalist approach to songwriting and production. Our music exists because of the tremendous energies of a small but dedicated number of people who are consistently putting forth their best creative works. By the very nature of the eclectic and multi-talented people who comprise the band, BURNT manages to avoid the one-dimensionality so common in the contemporary world of music-art. From hip hop to reggae to punk rock and ska - BURNT has made their home at the crossroads of cultures that is at the heart of underground music- their approach to music-making can only be described as fearless. Without regard for words like genre and image, BURNT dives headfirst into uncharted musical waters.
