D Fine Us is a unique explorative music project, founded in Tel Aviv by producer and songwriter Tomer Katz. A marriage of dusty earthbound blues to warm modern electronic textures gives the project its signature hybrid sound.
Driven by a passion for exploring and understanding cultures, Katz traveled all the way to Mississippi in the heart of the delta to learn his craft from authentic local blues musicians. This musical creation draws lines and connects the dots between worlds.
Mixing raw live recordings with polished studio work, these songs were created in desolated bar rooms, wide-open fields, and friend’s living rooms. The end result is a one-of-a-kind musical experience that redefines the words rhythm & blues.
