The Present are an NYC based duo consisting of Rusty Santos and Mina Ohashi. The name is derived from their own concept of creating the music they feel is right now. They previously released ambient records World I See and The Way We Are (Lo Recordings) in 2009. With the new record, FSG, The Present emerge with an inspired collection of dance floor hits drawing from elements of house, juke, and beyond. Santos’ bold soundscapes and Mina’s intimate voice are at the center of FSG (or Feels So Good) their far-reaching eight song LP. The music was recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered by The Present in New York. Artwork by Seth Zucker.
