NIKITCH & KUNA MAZE
The collaboration project between musician Nicolas Morant aka Nikitch and Brussels-based producer Edouard Gilbert aka Kuna Maze began when the duo met at the Chambery Jazz Conservatory in France.Before attending university to study jazz, both artists had trained in classical music while growing up in the Lyon countryside. It wasn’t long until the duo started making electronic music together – a genre that wasn’t popular at the conservatory at the time, as retaliation.
Born out of wanting to try something different, and a mutual love of the same artists, the pair produced their first beat on the train from Chambery to Lyon. Influenced by the likes of Flying Lotus (a pivotal artists for Kuna Maze, who started producing after hearing his fresh sounds), as well as Roy Hargrove, Thundercat, Flako, Dorian Concept, Tigran Hamasyan, Esböjrn Svensson Trio and Erykah Badu – the duo blend their influences from jazz, broken beat and a wide pallet of electronic music, into dance-floor package.
« Killer dancefloor business from Tru Thoughts that should appeal to fans of house, broken beat and Brazilan jazz funk legends Azymuth. » - Exclusive premiere on Music Is My Sanctuary
« It’s something that you can continuously listen to and catch something new each time. » - Scratched Vinyle
