Music for digital natives
Abekejser was founded in 2015 in the city of Aarhus. The four young musicians with a background in Jazz and World-Music decided to combine their individual ideas through a common musical vision.
The musical approach was deliberately electronic from the get go in terms of Instrumentation and production – so they created an urban universe between jazz, beats and electronica that shares some musical ground with bands like Snarky Puppy or Jaga Jazzist but follows its very own rules by doing so!
"one of the best ultra-modern jazz rock formations"… "I don't just like the album ... I love it!"
– Musikreviews (DE)
"Future jazz, jazztronica, jazz pop: the young quintet Abekejser is hard to pin down but their catchy, party-time jazz with a positive attitude is proving popular in their native Denmark."
