Archie Pelago is a production and live performance trio based in Brooklyn, NY. Formed in late 2010, the trio of Hirshi (trumpet/DJ), Cosmo D (cello/Ableton) and Kroba (sax/Ableton) combine their varied backgrounds in jazz and classical music with a common love for rhythm and the wide-open possibilities of electronic music.
In the studio, the three produce collectively and prominently feature their instruments, lending deeply emotive patterns and textures to their tracks. On the stage, the group innovatively combines DJ-style performance with live playing and processing of their instruments, conjuring singular renditions of their original works as well as music that inspires them.
2013 features two new EPs on the horizon with the Subway Gothic EP forthcoming on Well Rounded Individuals on February 25th, 2013 and the Sly Gazabo EP forthcoming on Archie Pelago Music in April 2013. Their first 12” EP on the Mister Saturday Night label has received rave reviews from FACT and Resident Advisor, and recently Archie Pelago was featured as an XLR8R Bubblin’ Up Artist for 2013. With new releases and heavyweight collaborations with Grenier and Distal in the works, the Archie Pelago sound should not be missed, live or on record.
