About Us

 
 

86 SUPREME is a Brooklyn-based live electronic trio that combines their DIY punk vibe with reggae, hip hop, jungle and grime sound. They turn the traditional band set up on its head by integrating beat production and sample triggering into an explosive live performance.

 

86 Supreme began as an expression of an original sound and technique. After all having worked as professional musicians in the new york music scene for 10 years, they recognized that their concepts were beyond any existing lane. With live production concepts lead by midi-bassist/vocalist Sean Play, the band took its full form with drummer Xavier Hill, and synthesist Tenzin Hunter in 2017, creating their own signature style.

 

Both Sean and Tenzin introduce a FREAK set up to the stage by using their instruments to control stand alone samplers (gear geeks),  resulting in their own distinct take on sound and musical technique.

 

Through their releases, live performances and clothing line 1 Plus Edition, 86 Supreme is more than just a band; it's an expression of culture, creativity, sonics and lifestyle.
