About Vibe Street
Taking influences from game-changing producers in the ever exploding Electro-Hiphop-Glitch-Funk movement, and combining it with elements of bluegrass, folk, blues and jam, Vibe Street (Ben Davis) brings a flavor that is unrivaled in the world of music today. Davis has coined the genre “Grass-Hop/Future-Folk” to describe his unique sound – ranging from feel good, blue-grassy tunes, to spacey, soulful electronic beats that can rock a late-night dance tent. Combining forward thinking and versatility, Vibe Street is providing music fans across all spectrums with the refreshing dose of originality that they so desperately crave.
You can catch Vibe Street throwing down at this year’s Backwoods Music Festival in Stroud, Oklahoma, September 1 – September 5.

Be sure to check out Blunt Force if you liked this “Refunk”
Blunt Force is the musical vision of Austin, Texas locals Brian Gustafson & Deniz Baykal. Mixing elements of funk, hip-hop, and livetronica, Blunt Force has quickly gained notoriety throughout the scene with their unique blend of styles.
Heavily influenced by the rise of sample-driven electronic music, Gustafson sought to add his own touch to this newly emerging genre. After moving to Austin, Texas in 2011 to attend St. Edward’s University, Gustafson began producing music out of his freshman dorm room. Not wanting to be just another DJ, Gustafson strived to create a unique style of his own by blending sample-based productions with rhythmic guitar riffs.
