Neue Grafik Ensemble
Neue Grafik is – contrary to what his stage name might suggest – a French producer with a preference for British genres such as breakbeat and grime. So it’s not surprising that during a visit to the English capital he immediately felt at home in the Total Refreshment Center, an iconic breeding ground for the groundbreaking jazz scene of London. He soon formed the Neue Grafik Ensemble, with emerging names such as multi-instrumentalist Emma-Jean Thackray and drummer Dougal Taylor (Vels Trio). In 2019, the quartet released Foulden Road, a mini-album on which jazz, hip-hop and electronics come together effortlessly.
