Ebi Soda

Mar 15, 2024

9:00pm – 9:40pm CT

The Velveeta Room

Born from ten-hour jam sessions in peeling Brighton bedsits, the technical parameters of a bootstrap recording process and the osmotic, multi-genre influence of internet music archives, quintet Ebi Soda have been steady-cultivating a unique sound amidst the exploding UK jazz scene.

With a cynical, somewhat industrial approach to jazz which could only be informed by the greyness of the streets of Britain, Ebi Soda juxtapose the skies of their surroundings with an illustrious approach to crafting sound over their abrasive beats, conveying colour and dreariness simultaneously. As staunch anti-traditionalists, they thrive on this idea of contradiction, seeming more inspired by the atmosphere inside a rave than the sounds heard on jazz records. Their only debt to typical jazz being to attempt to innovate and experiment at every opportunity.”

(optional 3rd paragraph): “Created through following a particular feeling among the crew, each Ebi track is a sign of the times and contains the essence of their state of mind when recorded.
