BADBADNOTGOOD / Arrangement Studio / Group Climate

Al Sow

Making a name for oneself as a modern jazz performer can be quite tough. With such a long and illustrious history, sounding fresh, innovative, and thrilling in jazz can almost seem impossible. BADBADNOTGOOD, based out of Toronto, Ontario, has reinvented current jazz music. With a unique take on modern and experimental jazz, the trio has established itself as a staple and fan favourite. Alexander Sowinski, the group’s backbone, and drummer has established one of the most innovative sounds in the genre in decades. Sowinski is well-educated in the subject and has spent the better part of a decade honing his sound and skill. By partnering and working with numerous Hip-Hop artists, Sowinski has cemented his place among superstars. Credited on the productions of artist such as Kendrick Lamar, Sowinski has yet to be stopped. By collaborating with musicians and producers such as Kaytranada and Frank Dukes, Sowinski has developed a unique sound that combines jazz, hip hop, and electronic elements. This is also one of his several successful contributions to the modern world of jazz and music. Currently on tour with the release of BADBADNOTGOOD’s fifth Studio album “Talk Memory” (via XL Recordings) Playing festivals and shows such as Coachella while also touring across the United States, Canada and the rest of the world.

Message to CANOPUS

Product (Snare Drum) : Zelkova
The most beautiful and insane sounding drum! Where else can you get a solid wood drum made out of rare 100 year old wood. On top of that this drum sings in a huge range of tuning. Fabulous!

Product (Drum Kit): NV60-M1
Being a huge fan of vintage drums for over a decade now, I've not playing made modern drum-kits that have really spoke to my liking. After coming across the incredible Canopus manufacturing, I'm so happy to play these modern-vintage drums that sing and explode like a vintage kit. The craftsmanship is of the highest quality and these drums look and sound amazing on the road.
