In their work, they combine three synthesizers, drum, rhythm machines, bass, guitar, vocals, and a lots of effects with the idea to inspire people to listen, think and act independently and responsibly in their lives. Bamwise combines “synthetic” and “acoustic” elements into a raw and energetic sound, with emphasis on rhythm and basically as the basic elements of the original dub reggae music.
Although their music is inspired by Jamaican dub and reggae musicians, their sound is very fresh and modern with a combination of various elements of contemporary electronic music, followed by the trends of English and French music production, but with their own view of underground bass music.
