"Their Loss is Your Gain"

"Reggae fans should be excited about the return of Katchafire on Friday, June 22 (7 p.m.; all ages; $20 presale or $22 at the door), with KauzaFex opening. Katchafire, an all-Maori band from New Zealand, has been at it since 1997, gaining steam—and worldwide fans—throughout its career. Local underground hip-hop act KauzaFex was one of the winners of the inaugural 2009 New Times Music Awards for its track “Clones Awoke Us.”" - New Times SLO

"Local Live Hip Hop Blowing Up in SLO"

"Bands like Kauzafex are often a mash-up of one or more groups that are exploring with combining genres to create new musical styles, Kauzafex singer-songwriter Chad Futer said. “A lot of different genres are teaming up together to try to make a new style of music,” Futer said. In Kauzafex’s case, that team comes from the collaboration of Jacob Moore and Futer, who were rapping together under the name Kauzafex, with a local rock band called “Idiosyncratic Rabbit.” The result is an energetic, talented group of musicians who are passionate about pushing boundaries and providing great music.. Kauzafex was next up. Basically, I’ve loved this group ever since I figured out what the name meant (say it out loud if you’re having trouble). Slightly older, with more of an emphasis on rap with a heavily rock-influenced sound, this group is made up of veterans of the San Luis Obispo music scene, and it shows. The group’s performance was energetic as usual, as the crowd danced along..." - The Mustang Daily


Still working on that hot first release.



With Jacob Moore (Lemore) and Chad Futer (Hume) vocalizing abstract poetic lyrical flows. Backed by a classic creative guitarist and vocalist Mike Frick, smooth-fingered bassist Houston Hayes, and the intricate "human-metronome like" drummer Matt Brandon; this group creates a performance that will leave your brainwaves cycling and your heart beat pumping. Always in pursuit of pureness, Kauzafex will continue to blend grungy, yet often jazzy alternative rock with flows that will bring you back to your hip hop roots for years to come.
