London’s hottest new-jazz **** with a wave of cosmic-leaning sound

With influences across the board, from Miles Davis to Thundercat, Vels **** explore their mutual loves and individual fortes from jazz, funk, electronic, and hip-hop. Their live performances are characterised by heavy grooves, frenetic energy and fiery improvisation.

Rooted in a process of constant refinement and development, the creative mission of Vels **** is never complete. To see them perform is not to watch the reimagination of a previously perfected product, but to experience a continuation of the creative process. Having spent years jamming together, and performing live with the likes of Moses Boyd and Shabaka Hutchings, before putting their music down to tape, Vels ****’s music yearns to be heard live, rooted in the unexpected excitement of the moment. A process which proved itself; When they did release their debut offering, 2017’s Yellow Ochre EP, they scooped a nomination for Jazz Album of the Year in the Worldwide Awards.

Some of the brightest stars of the blossoming UK Jazz scene, this is an unmissable evening of heavy groove and spicy improvisation.
