Cykada play The Beats of L.A. + Major Ruse on Friday 30th November 2018
London-based fusion outfit Cykada comprises six of the capital’s most exciting underground jazz, rock and electronic music talents. Saxophonist James Mollison plays with the mighty Ezra Collective, as well as alongside trumpeter Axel Kaner-Lidstrom in the visionary octet, Where Pathways Meet. Tim Doyle, aka. drummer extraordinaire and Nubya Garcia collaborator Chiminyo, occupies the drum stool, with fellow Don Kipper member Jamie Benzies on bass. Guitarist Javi Pérez brings psychedelic rock licks and electronics wizard Tilé Gigichi-Lipere brings electronic textures and sound manipulation techniques, to complete the exceptional line-up.
For their first club shows outside of London, the up-and-coming group will perform The Beats of L.A., a set which includes live renditions of material by Flying Lotus, Mndsgn and more, alongside new original material. It went down a storm before a packed Jazz Café earlier this year and is certain to do so again, as the band pick up a head of steam with their debut album, slated for release on Astigmatic records. Fans of Melt Yourself Down, Josef Leimberg and The Heliocentrics will no doubt appreciate their dynamic sound, electronic edge and cosmic vision.
Opening the show are hip-hop influenced jazz trio Major Ruse. The group features guitarist and Bitches Be Brewin' regular Joe Egan, drummer Jamie Sykes and saxophonist Marcus Joseph.
