Previously known as Odd Trio, Bad Bad Not Good hail from Toronto Canada. Gilles Peterson recently hyped them saying “they are the most exciting rhythm section coming out of hip-hop since i heard The Roots”.

Coming together at jazz music school, Matt, Alex and Chester found common ground over Odd Future tracks. For a school project, they filmed and recorded cover versions of Odd Future tracks titling it the ‘Odd Future Sessions’. Once uploaded to Youtube, things took off for Bad Bad Not Good, which included a recorded collaboration with Tyler The Creator.
