“Funky and hypnotic, with multiple genres interlaced in each track, Ogres is a musical mad science project gone right. Equal parts punk rock and hip-hop, and laced with EDM and disco beats, the group consists of Justin Aswell (beats/drums/guitar), Robert Childers (vocals), Cody Bennett (bass), and Scott Blackwood (turntables, procession). Having formed in 2020, Ogres made their live debut on the Snug Harbor stage in 2021, and are looking to release a collection by the end of the year. Their current discography can be found on Soundcloud.” – Jonny Golian, CLTure
