Bands We Like: The Multi Format Virtuosity of Berlin's Comfort Fit

You’ve heard about him from the tags on your new jeans, and now it’s time to get better acquainted with Berlin’s Comfort Fit.

As the legend goes, Comfort Fit learned the art of sampling at age four. He DJed his first gig at age 12, and he released his first record at age 18. Wow. Either his parents were incredibly supportive of his endeavors, or they’re failed musicians living vicariously through him.

Whatever their technique of child rearing, Mr. and Mrs. Fit reared themselves a damn virtuoso.

Over several albums, Comfort Fit has forged a sound that borrows from soul, hip hop, funk, and glitch formats. While any one track might fall into one of these categories, it will never do so neatly.

These records are better defined by clean, nuanced production than by any genre title.

Comfort Fit collaborates like crazy, so his record liner notes are packed with obscure gems of rap and song from all languages.

Hear a preview for his upcoming record via a quote from Soderbergh’s Schizopolis and a little background funk.
