Exact Change Project is a live hip-hop band from Queens and Brooklyn, New York City. Their progressive style fuses international vibes with jazz, funk, and latin rhythms. The composition is collective; the lyricism and musicality is purposeful. Their sound is inspired from a wide range of musical styles across eras, from Thelonious Monk to Hiatus Kaiyote, from A Tribe Called Quest to Radiohead. "Weight of the Wild" is truly a fusion of styles, both topically and musically. Written months after the group's return from living abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the album is a memoir of both their travels and eventual return to NYC.
