Ripe is seven musical soulmates who refuse to believe in a single definition of dance music. They are an unstoppable groove, an extended moment of ecstatic release, the catalyst for taking “just another night” and elevating it into something else entirely. They are the swagger of funk filtered through a rock anthem, a musical journey that somehow gets as stuck in your head as your favorite pop banger.
What They're Using
On stage the group utilizes almost the entire range of Dynamic Series microphones. The M80-WH wireless dynamic capsule is lead vocalist Robbie Wulfsohn's go to microphone, while M81 Universal Dynamic microphones are featured for backing vocals and guitar cabinets.
“It was night and day when we heard the Telefunken mics from out front,” says general manager and bass player Tommy Black. “They sound great on vocals, but they also sound great on guitars and snare drums, so they’re multi-use.”
“Telefunken is amazing,” adds Erik Himel. “We thank them for supporting us on this weekly celebration. It really makes it an outstanding sonic showcase and we really appreciate it.” [Stole this quote from a press release but you get the idea]
In Spring 2018, we partnered with Ripe to bring you the Immersive Studio Experience. This brought the energy of the group into the studio for two performance videos as well as building an interactive 3D environment inside of the recording space that lets you explore the sights and the sounds of the studio. Ripe has also participated in the Live From The Lab series performing within TELEFUNKEN's production space and recording studio in South Windsor, Connecticut.
