Thanks to their jazz roots and shared interest for electronic music, Jérôme (trumpet, keyboard), and Jonathan (drum, programming), created Topium in 2015. Equally spontaneous and methodical, this Quebec outfit finds pleasure through improvisation and the search of structures. Their tracks combine rich, organic analog/acoustic sounds with digital elements, which is reproduced both on record and on stage. Electro-jazz, hypnotic rhythm meets cloudy, ambient soundscape. With a universal, relatable sound, Topium sure knows how to add a deliciously groovy touch to their instrumental tracks. The duo will appeal to both newcomers and regulars of the jazz/electro scene. Why Topium, you may ask? Nope, it’s not a reference to the opiates; it’s simply because it rolls off th
e tongue nicely and catches the ear.
