We at OSV have probably written more about The OneUps than any other VGM-based band. Rather than list all the articles individually, I recommend you just search our tag for The OneUps .
This jazz band turned funk band has been doing some really special and important work in the world of VGM arrangements. So many bands go for straight up rock arrangements, or some variation of rock. With a very similar band setup, The OneUps manage to drop the driving beats and go for funky, swing-like grooves in almost all of their songs. Their albums have improved in quality from year to year, with the recent “Intergalactic” albums showcasing a sound unlike anything we’d heard before.
The band’s lead, Mustin, recently opened “Mustin Enterprises” in place of the old OneUp Studios. What this means for the future of the band, we’re still not sure, but we’re hoping to get more details at MAGFest after their Thursday night performance!
