Balkan Bump is the newest project from trumpet player, producer and ethnomusicologist Will Magid.
Balkan Bump debuted with the single “Aymo” alongside superstar collaborators Gramatik and Talib Kweli. Gramatik quickly championed the new project; unveiling Balkan Bump's live show on his Re:Coil Tour and releasing Balkan Bump’s debut EP on his Lowtemp label imprint in 2018. Balkan Bump then blossomed to international audiences, performing at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lightning In A Bottle and Electric Forest, and releasing collaborations with CloZee, Beats Antique, The Gift Of Gab, The Geek x Vrv, Fakear, and more.
Musically, Balkan Bump is a fusion of live instruments, world influences and lush electronic production. His releases flaunt experience as an instrumentalist and arranger, fusing energetic Balkan brass with heavy electronic production and hip-hop influences.
Balkan Bump’s newest EP NFTrees features an environmentally-focused NFT release which Will explains:
The music industry needs to change! A few months ago I sold one of my songs as an NFT. It was an exciting new adventure, but something about it didn't feel quite right. It felt so intangible, and there was a lot of concern about the environmental impact from crypto currencies...
So I created NFTrees (Nitrogen Fixing Trees). With this project I’m not only reducing the environmental impact from the blockchain (geek alert), but I’ll also offset all of Balkan Bump’s touring carbon footprint. I'm releasing a brand new EP as an NFTree, where all sales go towards carbon credits that will help me reach carbon neutrality for the tour.
I hope you'll join me on the NFTrees journey. See you soon on the dancefloor!View Map
