HQ Vinterjazz 2018: Abekejser

Koncert

Abekejser. Fierce hip hop beats and epical synth-harmonies spiced up with breathtaking melodies that solidifies in your mind. Words are unnecessary when Danish band ’Abekejser’ invites you into their spacious unique universe, in which you will be able to both dance and disappear into a musical dream.

In the woodlands lives the Emperor Tamarin (Danish: Abekejser) who parties to groovy beats of jazztronica. Abekejser is a new gang of five from the top of the lively musical scene in Aarhus, Denmark. Together they have created an instrumental portal to an intriguing new universe.

With a background mostly in jazz and world music you might expect a certain sound, but Abekejser has long transcended the fixed templates and thrown the double bass on the fire. What you get is a sound built on strong beats from a combination of electronic drum machine and acoustic drums underneath the big sound of flaming synthesizers and saturated guitar sounds, giving you epical harmonies and captivating melodies.

We move you both ways – you can quietly dream away or be devoured in a fresh dance party – the faithful guardians of the Emperor delivers the soundtrack. The musical inspiration comes from bands such as Jaga Jazzist, Snarky Puppy, and Weather Report, but Abekejser is unique all on its own. A new Danish sound – not easily classified….
