The musicians in DelVita, sound magicians, are presenting their second album. Inspired by Radiohead, Wayne Shorter, Kurt Rosenwinkel and electronic music, their repertoire goes beyond the jazz confines to deliver an eclectic jazz, a unique and explosive sound.
The Belgian band DelVita is known for infusing their acoustic sound with the skank and energy of electronic music, while still using jazz as a get-out clause. The result is unlike anything you’ve heard before. In this project, the soundbrewing brothers are entering a new kosmos. Their carefully crafted compositions strive for an interesting mix of upbeat alt-rock while at the same time keeping a slow sonic intensity that recalls Radiohead. Their music is inspired by Wayne Shorter and relies on concepts developed by their former collaborator Kurt Rosenwinkel. This makes for an explosive style that doesn’t shy away from intimate and minimalistic moments. From raving acoustic beats to nuanced ensemble-playing, the brothers were able to create a unique soundscape varying from giant scenery to the smallest microcosm.
