Jazz, breakbeat and jungle coalesce beautifully on AKJ Trio's live one-take wonder — watch

Jazz, breakbeat and jungle coalesce beautifully on AKJ Trio's live one-take wonder  — watch

Housed under Singaporean label Phyla, newly-formed group AKJ Trio is a band unlike any other.

Comprising of KAIN on production, Anomy on drums and jandaL on bass - the virtuoso outfit look organically blend their disparate influences into an shape-shifting and free-flowing sonic entity.

Their first collaborative effort isn't a collection of tracks so much as a 17 minute jam, bridging the gap between electronic and acoustic elements, while walking the fine line between production, composition and improvisation.

Recorded in one-take, their first set together is the perfect crystallization of their ambitious live music-making ethos, where any one of them can (and does) take the music into any direction at any given time. 

This liberating set-up can seem wild and full of pitfalls, but these three navigate their uncharted space with rarely-seen finesse, often choosing unbeaten paths, leading into more interesting terrain.

You can purchase this AKJ Trio Set on Bandcamp, listen to it on SoundCloud, or watch it via YouTube below.
