we are vbrtr.
Future-R&B DJ/producer duo, hailing from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, rise from the wheat blanketed fields that are synonymous with country and folk music. They aim to spread the music they love and create to those who are not familiar with it. VBRTR finds production inspiration in artists such as; Mura Masa, Diplo and TroyBoi to name a few. As songwriters, they pull the stylistic charms that made 90’s R&B, instant classics. With this diverse combination, they bring their own feel-good touch to music.
