Modern jazz with synth-powered grooves
Scandinavian band Machina Mundi draws inspiration from Weather Report's use of synths and Chris Potter's Underground project. Led by Lubos Soukup, the band's compositions feature elegant melodies, feel-good grooves, and exciting solos. With a unique harmonic universe, the music evokes images of a dark Scandinavian sky one moment and busy New York streets the next.

“With complex arrangements and a sound that moves between a gentle groove of odd meter grooves and floating, cloudy passages, you quickly find access to this basically positively radiant music with many lyrical moments. […] Yes, this music is very moving and intoxicating.”
