PAARD. is an instrumental trio from Ghent, Belgium. It consists of vibraphonist Wim Segers (Flat Earth Society, Compro Oro), bassist Owen Perry Weston (Coely) and drummer Sigfried Burroughs (Kapitan Korsakov).
Their experimental mish mash travels from eclectic hip hop grooves to a freestyle of funk flows with a bunch of unexpected stops along the way.
EP ‘Zalm’ is out now!
Hailing from Brussels, Bandler Ching is a creation of musical ideas from composer and saxophonist Ambroos De Schepper (Kosmo Sound, Azmari and Mos Ensemble).
Flawlessly blending contemporary jazz, electronics, trap, hip-hop and global beats, the sound is based around the freedom of expression and improvisation and performed with astounding conviction. With the help of Alan Van Rompuy (Azertyklavierwerke), Federico Pecoraro (ECHT!) and Olivier Penu (Kel Assouf), the four idiosyncratic artists come together to express their musical identity to dazzling effect.
After a period of exploration, the quartet are set to release their debut album ‘Coaxial’ on the 27th January, via the groove-obsessed Sdban Ultra label. A hypnotic trip through each band members’ musical fantasies, the band have their roots in jazz. “We start from Jazz and we give it our own attitude with improvisation and a lot of freedom and eventually mix it with influences such as electronics, beats, hip-hop etc,” says De Schepper.
