Moon Hooch + Kendler
6 O'Meara Street
Moon Hooch create what they like to call Cave Music. It's like house, but more wild, more jagged, more free, more natural to live in. From busking on the New York Subway to supporting They Might Be Giants, Moon Hooch’s thunderous tech-jazz log-jammed the streets with their 'hit-and-run skronking antics' (Louder than War) before ramming their first London club gig in the EFG London Jazz Festival.
The word is out on this two-saxophone and drums trio —a feisty take on minimalist techno, house and dubstep that guarantees dancefloor action. Don’t miss their only UK show this year, as they perform music from their new EP, Joshua Tree.
Opening act Kendler describe themselves as 'instrumental beat music' – the Austrian trio improvise with double bass, saxophone, drums, samplers and synths to deliver melodious basslines and grooves, inspired by breakbeat, downtempo and electro elements.
‘ Energetic, joyful, relentless and, best of all, original' ’
‘ Catchy melodic hooks and funky rhythms while leaving room for plenty of jazzy improvisation ’
‘ Electronic house music mixed with brawny saxophone riffs ’
