Hailing from Aarhus, Denmark, Athletic Progression is an instrumental trio rooted in Hip Hop and Jazz. Consisting of Jonas Cook on keys, Jonathan J. Ludvigsen on drums & Justo Gambula on bass, the band has gone from strength to strength over the last couple of years, and looks to conquer Europe in 2020. They visit by:Larm in march and did two "kick ass" concerts. You have to see em live.
While the group has been compared to Yussef Kamaal and their cohorts, their rise on the scene in Denmark has been happening simultaneously with the rise of the UK Jazz scene. Athletic Progression is deeply rooted in J Dilla-esque swing. Heavy, meditative vibes, instantly recognizable and insanely catchy. But these grooves do not emanate from samplers and chopped up breaks – they are played live. In the blink of an eye they tend to shift from an inhumanely tight synthetic electronic sound, to the wonkiest and elegant organic sound that time and time again proves them to be amazing individuals on their instruments.
The organizers have stated that they are taking necessary measures regarding COVID-19.
