arrowOneBeat recommends: The Hoo “My Degeneration”, out now!

19.02.13 by Lukas

We’re most definitely loving the vibe and energetic music by “The Hoo”. A mix between Jazz, Funk and Hip Hop,…

“…formed around the parisian keyboardist Anthony Malka with Tristano Pala (vocals and flute) and Uele Carboni (bass) from the Italian Funk combo Fun*Key plus the Moscow born drummer Alex Sitnikov. Musically it’s Sly Stone meeting The Roots. It’s all about tightness. About head banging and sweat.”

Their life performances look like a ton of fun and we’re looking forward to finally be on one . “The Hoo” just finished recording their demo album “My Degeneration”. If you want your dose of most danceable funk you should listen to (and buy) it now.

Catch them live at Badehaus Szimpla for their album launch on the 30.03. We’ll be there!

arrowExperimental Session 5 – compositions for film w/ ELEPHANT 9.11 21h

02.11.12 by Lukas


Session 5 is a special one.
We challenged the trio ELEPHANT to play a live jam session to accompany silent film sequences.

ELEPHANT are the ‘contemporary melodic groove collective’. Drums, bass and piano by Christoph, Antti and Marco. Various elements from jazz, popculture, classical, contemporary and electronica, whilst improvisation is the underlying core.

For the session we’ll work with a wide range of footage, not exclusively from silent films but coming mostly from around the 1920s and 1930s. The night will be divided into 3 20min parts, each representing a different theme and divided by short breaks. ELEPHANT will be improvising to a sequence they will have seen before, but never played or rehearsed to.

3 parts = 3 themes = 3 songs
I – Rythms & Colors
II – Narrative
III – Animation

RSVP at (thanks for sharing): https://www.facebook.com/events/378658952209262/


We hope to see you on Friday, November 9th.
As always come to Joao Cocteau at Kienitzer Strasse 98, 12049 Berlin

Entry is free.

arrowNew artist: “Contemporary Melodic Groove” by Elephant

17.09.12 by Lukas

We are very happy to announce that the contemporary jazz trio Elephant have joined our music collective and will from now on be supported by the growing OneBeat network and structures. ELEPHANT are Marco (Piano), Jesse (Bass), and Christoph (Drums, Electronics).  2 thirds Berlin, 1 third Montreal they teamed up in the beginning of 2012 and quickly found a common voice in their music. When we first saw them play live we got carried away and instantly had ideas for projects or events we could work on together. For them “improvisation is the underlying core” and Elephant works around various elements from jazz, popculture, classical, contemporary to electronica, in an ever evolving process. We’re looking forward to an Experimental Session in November and another gig soon to be confirmed.
Check their OneBeat profile for more infos, listen below and don’t miss them live at Badehaus Berlin on Wednesday (9 pm).
