    L&F

    //www.facebook.com/LandFOfficial/

    Having performed together in many different musical combinations from straight ahead jazz to four on the floor electronic dance music, Juba (drums), Oli (baritone sax) and Hamish (keyboards) had the idea sometime in late 2016 to get together for a jam and write some groove ideas.

    The initial blueprint of irregular yet accessible grooves coming from the bass, drums and sometimes sax, higher up with the emphasis being on spacious melodies and harmony with a consistent blend of organic and digital timbres are all very much a key part of the conception of this project.
