Jam on the Wall, our regular jam night continues. This time, hosted by Beck Pocket.
Viv Griffin (bass, vocals) and Jasper Clarke (keys) are Beck Pocket. Infusing funk, neo-soul and synth-pop, their music combines groovy bass lines and unorthodox harmony with lush synth design and intricate drum programming.
The duo share writing and production roles whilst embracing a DIY ethos: fabricating entire drum tracks with field recordings, designing visuals for live performance from scratch and manipulating live vocals with Ableton. Partly named after their appreciation of Vulfpeck and a misspelling they saw on the way to Lidl, Beck Pocket was formed in 2021. The two met in Manchester, collaborating in several projects before combining their influences of Thundercat, Magdalena Bay and SOPHIE together into one big Y2K-inspired package.
