“Of the Trees” is Tyler Coombs; electronic music producer hailing from Portland, Maine. Melding strong influences from hip hop, downtempo, and EDM – Of the Trees has crafted his own special blend of bass-heavy beats that keep the listening (and live) experience full of surprising twists and turns. At just 21 years old and currently in his first year of performing live – Of the Trees has made a significant impact on the East Coast bass music scene and isn’t slowing down any time soon.
Noteworthy achievements and performances include: multiple showcases at SXSW 2012; headlining Maine’s Kahbang Festival alongside artists such as Bassnectar and Paper Diamond; and opening for artists such as Figure, Kraddy, RJD2, Kill the Noise, Conspirator, Opiuo, Tycho, Minnesota and many more internationally known acts. 2012 proved to be a year of emergence – with Tyler playing shows and festivals throughout the North East and as far South as Texas; in 2013 he hopes to break through and travel across the United States making his mark with his special blend of experimental/psychedelic bass music. Citing influences from fellow bass music producers such as Mimosa, MartyParty, and Joker – to as far as Flying Lotus, Nosaj Thing, Hudson Mohawke, and Aphex Twin; Of the Trees brings a cerebral and soulful touch to heavy, danceable beats.
