Juno What?! is America’s newest contribution to the late 70's/early 80's-inspired, high energy, funk-disco, synth bass, electronica genre.

Citing reference points as diverse as The Beatles, Widespread Panic, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, and The Allman Brothers, EB avoids pigeonholing through genre-bending syntheses of their many different influences. “It’s about variety,” explains Willis. “We’ve got three distinctive songwriters all writing in their own way, so this band is definitely about variety.” These guys switch between funky riff-rockers, improvised jams, and pop mini-suites with ease. The result: listeners are treated to an array of styles, further augmented by their use of non-traditional instruments such as African percussion and the trombone.

Papadosio's latest release, entitled Magreenery, showcases the band's unique attempt to blend your grandfather's favorite jam grooves into an contemporary electronic soufflé. Forcing these two divergent forms of music into a viable chimera is no easy task. Typical jam fans do the elbow-spin-dance for organic grooves, organic clothing, and organs played by organisms, like humans. Electronica, on the other hand, rewards those who posses the technical skills to program clever loops, patches and the ability to push sound-processing apparatus to the limit of their design. Electronica artists often create sonic soundscapes unachievable by the human hand or analog instrument. The trick to appreciating Papadosio is to not think of their music as strictly jam or electronica. Instead, one needs to focus on the properties shared by both worlds. For example, both forms of music inspire listeners to dance and they both inspire trance-like mental states. Simply put, Papadosio creates music to dance and trance to.
