Neue Grafik Ensemble

Neue Grafik, producer, instrumentalist and DJ whose home base is Paris, has been building a solid rep for himself over the past few years. He did so with eclectic productions released on labels as Rhythm Section, 22a and Wolf Music. His music is a mixture of jazz, house and hip-hop and he soon found his way to the Total Refreshment Centre - the place to be for the new generation of London jazz musicians. There he crossed paths with drummer Dougal Taylor, bassist MaddAddam, saxophonist Jordan Saintard and Emma-Jean Thackray (who makes arrangements out of his compositions). Together they form Neue Grafik Ensemble and had their first gig a week after the first day of rehearsals. Then the group got in the studio and 'Foulden Road' the EP taken from those sessions came out. Neue Grafik is now setting to release a new record entirely dedicated to Adama Traoré and Assa Traoré, their community and more largely to all Black people around the globe.
