The DNA of the French band The Geek x VRV originates from their Beat Tapes “Back To Old School” (BTOS). A tribute to Hip-Hop & Soul classics, it’s the beginning of the story that shows the talent of these two beatmakers.

Their flagship track « It’s Because », released 3 years ago, comes directly from their first Beat Tape and lays the foundation for the The Geek x VRV’s sound today.

Three volumes of BTOS brought them to a first EP, ORIGAMI, on Embrace Records, a Sold Out Maroquinerie (Paris), 2 USA tours and French festivals in 2016. Finally, they presented their new live set up, with 360° video projection and a brass instrument section, in front of a Sold Out Gaîté Lyrique in January 2017.

Like a liberating step back, this new tape definitively returns to their musical roots. On March 3rd, The Geek x VRV will present BTOS VOL. 4, a selection of 15 tracks that summarises the desire for authenticity and an old school sound.
Ageless
Ageless
Ageless is the musical vision of NY native Wesley Paioff. He's known for blending vintage vinyl samples with modern day synthesizers and rhythms. Often referred to as Electro-Soul or Future-Funk, Ageless describes his sound: "At some point I started producing music exactly as it's always sounded in my head. Not bound to any specific Genre, but influenced by many genres".
