Hungarian Jazz Collective Àbáse Releases Eclectic Jazz And Hip-Hop Infused Debut EP 'Invocation'


Budapest-born and Berlin-based producer, pianist and multi-instrumentalist Àbáse releases debut EP ‘Invocation’.

Created in a live recording session set up with Àbáse’s home-band in Budapest, "Invocation" is seven pieces of instrumental artistry, each channeling a musical journey of its own, while inviting the listener on a personal, emotional journey with guests which he encountered during his travels in Brazil, Ghana and Europe.

The crossover of jazz instrumentation and trap-style beats with swaggering repetition is one that feels as relevant as ever—e.g. Kendrick's To Pimp A Butterfly, Kamasi Washington, the flavours of Brainfeeder's output. Riding this wave of band-created groove well away from the producer's studio, Àbáse reflects a newness of modern pick-and-mix culture diverting from the specificity of genre.
