their chart-topping 2007 album En Route with the studio duo s signature
grooves and in-the-pocket production savvy. Four80East is the brainchild of
Toronto-based remix producers Tony Grace and Rob DeBoer (collectively known
as Boomtang). Inspired by the acid jazz/groove movement that was flourishing
in the United Kingdom, they launched their Four80East concept in the late 90s
as a cool, creative side project geared towards a loose, improvisational dance
vibe, and over the last decade, as chill music established itself as a genre of its
own, their jazz-inflected urban trance music became a global phenomenon.
