Gregory Shorter, Jr., better known by his stage name Ras G, is an instrumental hip hop producer and DJ from Los Angeles, California. He is associated with the record label Brainfeeder established by fellow producer Flying Lotus as well as Poo-Bah Records, a label Ras G co-founded with partners Ron Stivers and multi-genre music producer Black Monk.
This is the music that people will be playing in the ghettos of Mars in the year 3014. He has released a slew of albums and EPs for Poo-Bah that have garnered him a devout following from Japan to the Netherlands. And since being inducted into FlyLo's L.A.-based artist collective/label Brainfeeder, which Ras G dubs "the X-Men of future music," it's apparent that he's bound for the exosphere.
Ras G guides a deep space exploration of music’s ancient history and rich future. Working thru obsolete tools to reach back in time and pluck out the essence of groove, Ras G’s music is rich with space-funktified rhythms, fog horns, natty chattin, subterranean bass lines, colossal percussion and glorious highs.
