Soccer 96… The synth and drums duo of Danalogue and Betamax are most known as two thirds of The Comet Is Coming with sax loon Shabaka Hutchings.
Together they delivered one of the finest shows in Music Hall history in December 2016.
Over the past five years the pair have been shaping an electronic inspired cosmic jazz vibe, with their art-house production skills on albums for the likes of Ibibio Sound Machine, Flamingods and of course The Comet Is Coming. They have also worked with Sons Of Kemet, Melt Yourself Down, Boredoms, Yussef Kamaal & Nitin Sawney.
Taking influence from a range of artists groups like Can (they’ve played with Damo Sukuki too), Flying Lotus, Thundercat, Gaslamp Killer and Zombie Zombie.
Live Soccer96 transmit epic synth-scapes over poly-rhythmic drums and infectious dance grooves in a brutal cocktail of tight electronica and the spontaneous energy of improvisation delivering a fearless show of musicianship and floor-filling potency.
