Biography

The band

Vybespace is a fancy intercontinental collective of musicians and vocalists, all of whom have settled in the region of Basel, Switzerland. The group performs mainly original compositions in the reggae, funk, hip-hop and RnB genres. The band’s history is closely linked to the Vybez Studio Basel and its music. Crucial for the band’s formation was Schus-T, who is constantly producing tracks with artists from the studio environment, in particular with the studio owner William Martin and the American rapper MineBlown.
