Toronto, Ontario-based jazz ensemble BadBadNotGood make expansive music that straddles the line between '70s soul-jazz, alternative hip-hop, and experimental electronica. BadBadNotGood initially gained attention in the early 2010s playing jazz covers of hip-hop tracks by the likes of Odd Future and MF Doom. It was a sound they developed on their first two records, 2011's BBNG and 2012's BBNG2, covering songs by A Tribe Called Quest and Kanye West as well as My Bloody Valentine and Feist. Since then, they have balanced working on their own original songs as on 2016's IV, and collaborating on projects with hip-hop, dance, and neo-soul artists like Ghostface Killah and Kendrick Lamar. 2021's Talk Memory found the group exploring fusion, new age, and orchestral influences.
