First single from the upcoming compilation “KRAUT JAZZ FUTURISM” that portraits the new Berlin “Neo-Jazz” scene.
Karl Hector & The Malcouns, founded by JJ Whitefield (Stones Throw, Now Again, Daptone, Ninja Tune), lead the way with the exclusive track “Orange Man”. An ethno-kraut-jazz-funkmasterpiece.
This band is part of a new German wave. After the UK jazz and US jazz hype it’s time for the german jazz revolution. But while the new US & UK jazz is more influenced by hip hop and R&B, the young German jazz musicians are rooted in Krautrock and electronic music.
This upcoming KRYPTOX compilation shows that Berlin is not a techno city anymore. There are many jazz musicians, new hot live clubs and festivals. The compilation release will coincide with Kryptox stage takeovers at Uberjazz festival Hamburg and XJazz Berlin. Full PR campaigns in Germany, US and UK.
