Hypnotic trance grooves, featuring the transcendental, dubbed-out sound of musical alchemists Justin Adams (guitar) and the Gambian ritti master Juldeh Camara in a mesmerising and thrilling live performance. They’re joined by Billy Fuller on bass and Dave Smith on drums.
Two live drummers and deep basslines with strong jazz and classical influences make cinematic, emotive, percussive, next-generation music using traditional instrumentation and organic samples. Their debut album Night Walks showcases their energetic originality. Their beautifully crafted, explosive live show, where the core quartet is augmented with visuals, cello and brass, has cemented their reputation as one of the UK’s unique upcoming outfits.
