A versatile Canadian alternative dance duo with a penchant for pairing pulsing electro-pop and drum'n'bass with hip-hop and guitar-driven modern rock, USS (Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker) formed in 2007 around the talents of vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Ashley Buchholz (aka Ash Boo-Schultz) and turntablist/hype man Jason Parsons (aka Human Kebab). Hailing from Toronto, the duo began honing their high-energy live show in 2008, releasing their debut EP, Welding the C:/, independently that summer. The single "Hollowpoint Sniper Hyperbole" became a regional hit, and by 2009 the band was supporting reggae-fusion hitmakers IllScarlett on their Canadian tour, and had released their acclaimed debut full-length outing, Questamation. The year 2011 saw the release of a new EP, Approved, with a third EP, the crowdsourced Advanced Basics, dropping in 2014, the latter of which was the first USS release to see distribution outside of their Canadian homeland. ~ James Christopher Monger
