The KBCS represent the coming together of four very uniquely gifted, but very complementary, musicians from Hamburg, Germany. Drummer Lucas Kochbeck spends much of his time obsessing about vintage recording equipment, tape machines and the like, whilst adding his talents to the recordings of retro-loving contemporaries such the Bacao Rhythm And Steel Band and the Colemine Records family. Keyboard wiz Nicolas Börger is very much an in-demand, sound-centric master of the blacks and whites, in the same way that guitarist Lars Coelln lends his skills to a myriad of works across the sonic spectrum. Completing the quartet, bottom end provider Daniel Stritzke adds a little freeform jazz and hip-hop attitude to the mix, but even then you can find his bass holding things down on crossover hits galore. Given their background, this project allows all four musicians a sense of creative freedom they perhaps don’t find elsewhere in their musical 9 to 5. It’s a natural evolution from being sidemen and session musicians to taking centre stage together and allowing themselves to be more experimental with their output. Mistakes are embraced, musical rabbit holes are explored, allowing emotion and spontaneity to shine through. This is music from the heart; a document of their coming together; and music that needs to be heard live! New album coming soon...
