Beyond Albedo are a Leeds-based improvisatory retro-futuristic synth-jazz 4 piece. This jazz/EDM quartet make original music that's exploratory and experimental, but also energetic and danceable feeling equally at home in clubs, concert halls, art galleries and pubs.
All members bring both traditional and genre pushing elements to the bands exciting sonic mix resulting in a sound that draws from the jazz tradition while pushing it in exciting new directions. This brand new group are helping signpost a way for how jazz can fuse in elements of electronic dance music to its ever evolving tradition and you can catch them here at one of their first ever gigs.
Their interstellar soundscapes and danceable beats can be heard on their debut EP ‘CONTACT' which came out in June this year.
