More Info:

Jason Grimes is all about making timeless music. The Cincinnati-based DJ and producer has a long history of record collecting, sampling, and creating new sounds with analog gear. Grimes works with some of Cincinnati's finest studio musicians to create raw, soulful, instrumental hip-hop under the moniker Doctor Bionic. The next LP, Spiritual Conquest, is due out 10/27/2023 via Chiefdom Records. As a teenager in the 90s, Grimes fell in love with hip-hop at an early age. He became comfortable scratching on a pair of 1200s and sampling records with an NPC in high school. After years of collecting records and working on his sound behind the scenes, he had compiled a huge discography of original songs - but he wasn't sure how to share them. "I got pretty burnt out and I had to take a hiatus for a few years," he explained. "There wasn't much going on in the Cincinnati music scene, and it always felt like an uphill battle." Then, on a casual bike ride with his wife through Loveland in 2015, Grimes came across a new record shop. "I heard some music playing and I saw a sign that read 'funk/soul' - I had to go in and see what these guys were all about." He spoke with Terry Cole, co-owner of Colemine & Plaid Room Records. "It was a breath of fresh air to meet Terry. The interaction inspired me to start making records again." A short time later, Grimes started his independent label Chiefdom Records. His studio persona Doctor Bionic was one of the first to see a release on the new imprint. "Doctor Bionic is a studio band of session musicians," he shared. "The personnel changes on every record. It depends on the sound I'm going for." For every record, the goal is to make timeless music. Grimes is responsible for writing, recording, producing, mixing, and releasing the records. Spiritual Conquest features several heavy hitters from the Cincinnati music scene. Brad Myers and Brandon Scott played guitar on a few tracks each. Marvin Hawkins laid down some live drums. The album offers a dynamic mix of instrumental hip-hop sounds. From punchy, head-bobbing beats to ethereal, floating piano lines, the mix offers a little something for everyone.
