Athletic Progression

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Friday 21 st September 2018

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

Athletic Progression is an instrumental trio (drums, bass and keys) rooted in hip-hop and jazz. Whilst the three young Danes are openly influenced by artists such as Herbie Hancock, Yussef Kamaal, and Flying Lotus, they have a sound completely of their own making, instantly recognisable and undeniably catchy. Since making their debut a few years ago, the band has gone from strength to strength. They were recognised as the Best Act at Spot Festival 2017 by Danish online music magazine Regnsky, and have since then played SoFar Sounds, Distortion (P8 Jazz Stage), Jungelen in Bergen, NO, and CPH Jazz Festival for a WorldwideFM special.
