The OriGinALz, a west coast bass duo consists of Michael D. Rivera and Troy Prokopowich. They started working in the studio together, in late 2011, early 2012. What came was something unexpected. Their music consists of a rich plethora of synthetic and organic sounds. Ranging from hard hitting bass to more etheric melodic, futuristic purple sounds. Reaching into funky glitch hop and slower sexy club tunes. Michael was greatly influenced by hip hop, which gravitated him towards the beat scene and the keys early on. Troy is classically trained and has studied music theory, since the early years. He plays a wide variety of instruments .They inspire to bring innovation, authenticity and accessibility to their sounds, making point for there to be something for everyone to boogie down to on the dance floor without sacrificing the integrity of there music.
"Here’s some lovely, and extremely musically talented, fellows you may not be familiar with...I think I speak for many Funkadelphians when I say I hope to be hearing more from these guys in the future."-- Funkadelphia
"Yes, there’s definitely an incorporation of trap, but its so “OriGinALLy” used here that it works. While these guys fit in with other west coast acts such as Minnesota, G Jones and Perkulat0r, they still hold their ground with plenty of original sound design and freshly unique beats."-- Funkadelphia
"The Originalz’ newest release, Get Lucid, out on Gravitas Recordings, is like a cosmic journey through a seamless soundscape. I would highly recommend checking out and downloading this stellar release (name your own price)."-- Afromonk
