Loop Doctors: Loops, effects, & more – the Science Fiction of Jazz!
Contemporary Jazz from NYC/Budapest based band
Artist support: 25 lei
Loop Doctors plays a medley of different styles, including jazz, drum ‘n’ bass, jungle, hip-hop and rap, spiced with effects and samples. An overall category could be nu-jazz, but Loop Doctors can also be seen in clubs, where people actually dance to the music. They usually perform as a duo, Peter using an ‘Octa-pad’, from which the grooves, bass lines and additional synths are played, and also playing acoustic drums. Aron plays keys, and also does vocals/rap.
Their latest album, Frontier Science released in 2018 is exploring the final frontiers of music, this sci-fi inspired jazz crossover album boasts creative tunes, crafty musicians and an overall high energy vibe. An eclectic crossover of modern sounds, grooves and traditional jazz improvisation, referred to as “cyber-bebop”. Áron Romhányi on keys/rap, Szendőfi Péter on drums/pads, introducing Varga Gergely on saxophone. The members of Loop Doctors are obsessed with space travel, nanotechnology, basically any area of science that involves exploration. They apply the same methodology in music: combining modern sounds with bebop, electronic music with improvisation.
