Run Logan Run
Run Logan Run are a head on collision of pounding tribal drums and screaming guttural saxophone. Architects of intense contrast the duo's diverse and precise instrumentation regularly flirts with fragility and raw power. Formed through a shared passion for improvisation, spiritual jazz and heavier experimental music, they are Andrew Neil Hayes (Saxophones/FX) and Dan Johnson (Drum Kit/Percussion), and have been authoring their own narrative in the new wave of crossover jazz, whilst touring the UK extensively, sharing stages with the likes of Colin Stetson, Melt Yourself Down, Shabaka Hutchings, Sarathy Korwar and Hieroglyphic Being.
"A raw, aggressive, and unrelentingly creative sound." - Clash Music.
"Somewhere between @MeltYrselfDown and @YussefKamaal, this is brilliant." - Fresh On The Net.
"These chaps are the new generation of a heralded lineage of trained musicians forging their own unique style, akin to Polar Bear or Sons of Kemet who have gone on to critical acclaim." - The Comet Is Coming.
"The two-man Run Logan Run is so perfectly in sync that it's like listening to twins born into jazz." - Jazz Author.
Il Santo Bevitore
A mixture of ritualistic percussion, blackened tribal, raw techno and power electronics, Il Santo Bevitore is the moniker of Sardinian drummer and percussionist, Nicola Serra. His most recent works feature sound and healing therapist and shamanic practitioner, Lani Rocillo, on vocals. Together they investigate the relationship between percussion and shamanism using repetition as a key to hypnotise and trance the listener.
Minus Pilots is percussionist Matt Pittori and bassist Adam Barringer. Together they weave sparse textures, crumbling atmospheres and fractured drones with currents of gentle crackle. Minus Pilots have performed in Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Dublin, London, Milan and Paris.
