RAPIDMAN is a new jazz band with top musicians who have won their spurs in bands such as Flat Earth Society, Arno, Nordmann, Arsenal, Isolde, Soulsister, etc. The list is practically endless. The band name? You won't forget it once you get to know the unique sound of this quintet; the band is much more than the sum of its parts.
RAPIDMAN is one of those collectives that can show you every corner of the room without losing control, creating a sizzling and crackling atmosphere. With bursting energy, lilting lyricism and catchy melodies, the five-piece band seamlessly blends the jazz tradition with diverse influences from rock and experimental electronic music.
Drawing inspiration from analogue soundscapes and aiming to evoke an innovative cinematic trance in the listener, the band describes their sound as "freedom, individuality, strong melodies underpinned by an imaginative groove, sculpted with wild, undefined and dreamy electronics."
Their first EP ‘GAFANOTO’ was released in November 2021 through Solidude Records / N.E.W.S. Distribution on all major digital platforms. A first album (digital & vinyl), including singles ‘SLECHGAAN’ and ‘GREENFLY’ is coming your way in spring 2022.
Recording, production & mix: Koen Gisen (Nordmann, De Beren Gieren, Flying Horseman, Dans Dans, …).
Mastering: Karel De Backer.
