2015, Electrophazz is awarded « All That Jazz Revelation of the Year » a tremendous achievement quickly followed by a recurrent rotation on nationwide Jazz Radio’s playlist. Since 2007, these eight musicians have been cultivating their shared passion : the Groove, an energy that makes you move and puts a smile on your face.
With already two albums under their belt, ELECTROPHAZZ, driven by pianist and lead composer David Marion, released in April 2014 a five track EP « Shades of your Soul », which poetically explores an array of human emotions, such as grief, love and resiliance.
The balance of a masterfully coordinated rhythm section complimented by the silky smooth sound of saxophones harbours the perfect platform for the talented Celia Kameni and Thaïs Lopes de Pina to express themselves in immaculate harmony. From the subtle use of opportune samples to rapper NotaBene’s sharp flow and thouroughly pampered lyrics, all the elements are gathered to provide a mesmerizing and heartwarming show.
Inspired by a wide variety of colourful artists (Roy Hargrove, Robert Glasper, The Roots, Common, Erykah Badu, Jamiroquaï, Lauryn Hill…), ELECTROPHAZZ is unlike any other : a unique take on Neo Soul, stemming from African- American culture with a twist of French glamour. Don't miss their performance at Live at The Quarter!
