Cool Hunting Video Presents: Nugroove v1: Ellis and Arnold Live

Welcome to the first episode in our new CH Video series, Nugroove—an exploration of musicians who are able to expand both what we hear and think.

This episode focuses on two critically acclaimed Detroit musicians; Jeremy Ellis and John Arnold. Ellis and Arnold have been playing together in an experimental live electronic format for over a decade.

On Friday 24 March 2006, during the Winter Music Conference week in Miami, Arnold and Ellis performed an eclectic set of sounds that touched nearly every style and taste—in one improvised set they manifested a sonic tour through jazz, soul and funk to latin, rock, techno, electro, breaks and hip hop.

The show took place as part of CO-OP MIAMI, an event organized by Goya Music and Amalgama at The District in Miami’s Design District.
