The international trio of Paris-based pianist Sophie Agnel, Swiss Berlin-based turntablist Joke Lanz and U.S. drummer Michael Vatcher, who lives in Amsterdam, impresses with precise playing, intensity and spontanity. Rhythms and sound often change quickly and unpredictably, the role of leadership and push generator changes back and forth rapidly, with which the trio creates numerous unpredictable moments through the sounds of records, snatches of noise, bleeps, clicks and cuts, to name a few. An unconventional, fascinating constellation.
Anyone familiar with the last 50 years of progressive music in Germany will be familiar with formerly style-defining groups like Faust, Cassiber, Nachtluft or Ton, Steine, Scherben. The four from Taste Tribes represent these diverse strains and mix together more signals. As a trio, Taste Tribes began in 2007 with a CD of the same name. Since 2021 they play with Wolfgang Seidel; the CD Nischen, mixed by him, will be released in 2023.
