Boostive is a 6 to 7 piece musical collective drawing inspiration from late 70s roots reggae, golden era Hip-Hop, and Soul from the days of Motown. Led by Chilean/Asian American music producer Seiji Komo, the group has spent the last few years grinding away on the west coast festival circuit. The bands explosive horn section and dynamic rhythm section is what sets the band apart from the rest of the crowd and has earned them slots with their genres biggest acts like Matisyahu, Dirtwire, Don Carlos, Lee “Scratch” Perry, and many more. The recent addition of female lead singer Divina has solidified them as a premiere live act and even landed them a record deal with Slightly Stoopids, Stoopid Records.
Mitchum Yacoub is an Egyptian American multi-instrumentalist, producer, and DJ based out of San Diego, CA. As a lifelong drummer that has supported many projects in the vein of afrobeat, soul, funk, and reggae, he's been slow brewing a unique feel for roots and dance music. His 12-piece band, inspired by artists like Fela Kuti and James Brown, harkens back to Africa in the 70’s with the bass and drums turned up a notch. Strong, repetitive grooves layered with Afro-Latin percussion and vibrant, tightly executed horn lines that call all dancers to the floor.
