bio

oakland, ca based noise-hop duo divisor/ incorporates electronic rhythms, soundscapes, noise, live instrumentation and vocals to create a dark, sinister, fusion of drone, rap and electronic music.

since 2014, ryan honaker/ (co-producer, multi-instrumentalist) and ross hoyt/ (vocalist, co-producer) have multiple releases, encompassing a body of work that incorporates both alt-hip-hop and noise-hop themes with bass heavy instrumentals, mixed with live drones and ambient soundscapes. 2015 saw the release of their first two EP’s / and //. 2016 saw the release of the ep \re that contains the single future kill and remixes from their first two albums, featuring artists from the US and UK. Late 2017 will see the release of /// and a single piece of ambient work titled ambient series volume one.

live divisor/ performs with an arrangement leveraging guitars, violins, trumpets, guest musicians and real time created soundscapes, while vocalist hoyt/ delivers his frantic, paranoid flows over a combination of crushing bass and beats: an ever-evolving, twisted audible-onslaught not to be missed.

divisor/ has proudly supported and performed with some of their favorite bands and artists, such as: GO DARK, Moodie Black, Coolzey, Onewerd, ThatKidCry and JPEGMAFIA.
