RKDIA featuring Morten Schantz & Anton Eger

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Thursday 18 th November 2021

PizzaExpress Live (Holborn)

Armed with technical brilliance and a penchant for the epic, well-known names on the jazz and fusion scenes - Danish Morten Schantz (synth+vocals) and Swedish/Norwegian Anton Eger (drums) - spin up forceful and hypnotic works that inject the free kinetic of jazz into synth-based electronica and cascading power pop. It’s a sound of its own, a burst of colour and rhythm and their most explosive project yet, from pulsating house music blows to warm-blooded ambient synth-pop pathos. The music shimmers and sparks, layered with blazing intensity and starry-eyed beauty, and for a band of two they make an unforgettable roar onstage. Their debut album is set to be released in late 2021 on Danish label Music For Dreams.

“Schantz is able to embrace a carefully constructed dramaturgy that often explodes in melodic hooks that are so grand that they would fit a stadium”
