Who is Safety Bear?
Safety Bear (C.P. Kush – drum machine guitar, vocals) is a DC-based HiNRG electronic group that co-mingles retro dance beats, immersive atmospheres, and subject matter typically alien to the dance floor. Safety Bear offers 80's inspired originals and re-imagined Hi-NRG dance classics in the delightful guise of a neurotic teddy bear. (As earlier incarnation of Safety Bear was previously known as Data Recovery Project.)
Safety Bear tracks have been remixed by Nate Lanzino, Lane Young, Chinedu Onome, and Sanity Assassin. Safety Bear's EP02 and EP03 are produced by Steve Wright (Future Islands / Pigeons Playing Ping Pong). EP04 and the forthcoming EP05 are produced by Ian Shaw (Bikini Kill / Nick Heyward) .
To date, Safety Bear has performed in major U.S. cities including New York, Boston, Washington, D.C., Orlando, Key West, and also in London, England. Local festivals have included the Fort Reno Summer Concert Series and Capitol Pride Celebration.
