A future jazz vision buried in a nest of beefy electronics and bouncing rhythms. Saxophones, synthesisers and drums go in, hippo comes out.
“There's only 3 of them, but it sounds humongous"
BBC Radio 3 - Jazz Now
"Wow! Absolutely loving that - that was kind of a bit odd but kind of beautiful at the same time and melodic but also kind of quite jarring, kind of a wonderful cacophony of different stuff actually"
BBC Introducing in the West
“Mind-spinning Jazz Futurism... it’s exciting to see so much support for Hippo’s energetic combination of virtuosic improvisation and live electronics.”
Fresh on the Net
“Hippo then cranked things up with flairs of electro-psych and dream-like chord sequences meshing, culminating in a great interstellar beast. It was a full-on frenzy, leaving its mark.”
Bristol Live Magazine
“Floor filling, rhythmic jazz magic”
