Brainfeeder's Taylor McFerrin and Austin Peralta Collab Live on Stage

Brainfeeder squared.

A few days ago at Little Temple in LA, the son of a great voice artist and the son of a great skateboarder found themselves together on stage and made some kind of noise.

Taylor McFerrin and Austin Peralta, both artists on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint, jammed a tune they had worked on just the day before when the two first met.

With Austin on the keys perfectly in sync with Taylor on the beat box, you’d think the pair had been working together for years.

The tempo changes constantly and the jam seems to never end, with a new phase starting right as each one finishes. But eventually it hits a climax and ends and the crowd loves it. Let’s see if the synergy they achieved on stage ever plays out in an official collaboration.
