"Blending elements of today’s modern recording techniques and equipment coupled with the chops of top notch seasoned players; they embody the best of both worlds, old school and new school. Live the audio element can stand on its own but when coupled with the visual element brought forth by the dynamic duo it is an experience for all the senses... very exciting to hear and the show is a visual feast..."
Ben Kaplan Producer, Engineer, Mixer, Owner - Fader Mountain Sound (Hedley, Mother Mother, Alexisonfire)
"...amazed by their level of creativity and their work ethic. Their music blends electronic and organic instruments played with dexterity that is sure to impress an international audience. They write songs that are artistic, hooky, danceable, and accessible. Dynamo & Badnutbeats have honed a live presentation over the last number of years that manages to give the audience a visual interpretation of the sounds they create on stage. Their shows are mind blowing."
Flavio Monopoli Producer, Drummer, Arranger - Monopoli Music (The Barenaked Ladies, Jeff Straker, Kiri Etzkorn)
Two figures appear out of the ether, glowing white in the black-lit darkness, sounds and visuals swirling – chimes and churning textures you’ve never heard before...

D&BNB evolved organically as the friends played together in various bands and projects over the last 12 years. They developed telepathy. And a deeply disturbing shared sense of humour. Gonzo – the first D&BNB manifesto, was released in 2009. The next evolution has taken a bit of time - but this is a whole new creature. A trilogy, entitled “In Dog We Trust”.
D&BNB has already successfully toured over the last 5 years supporting established artists such as The Herbaliser, EOTO, Beats Antique, Future Rock, Perpetual Groove, Orchard Lounge, BioDiesel, and many more. They continue to develop the visual component of their live performances by employing state of the art technology and leading industry professionals in lighting/projection/stage design and show production. The “In Dog We Trust” trilogy, an unbelievable romp through sounds and textures and grooves and mind bending sonic alliteration, will be released and toured internationally.
