RKDIA featuring Morten Schantz & Anton Eger

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Friday 16 th September 2022

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

Morten Schantz (synth+vocals) and Anton Eger (drums) are well-known names on the jazz and fusion scenes around the world and have received world-wide critical acclaim with artists such as JazzKamikaze, Phronesis and Marius Neset as well as their own solo projects. With RKDIA they come together in a burst of colour and rhythm. Armed with technical brilliance and a penchant for the epic, the duo 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. One minute it goes to the body in pulsating blows like house music, the next, it envelops you in warm- blooded synth-pop pathos. One plays keys like a god and the other plays drums like an animal.

“…possibly the craziest drummer, visually, this side of The Muppets’ Animal... and while capable of some wild and crazy playing, he’s equally adept at contributing delicate textures, softer timbres and gentler pulses.”  - All About Jazz

“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” – All About Jazz
