SuperJazzClub are the future.
A collective comprising interdisciplinary creatives, BiQo, Øbed, Seyyoh, Tano Jackson, Joeyturks, Ansah Live and Anthony Orleans-Lindsay, SuperJazzClub’s roots are proudly Ghanaian but their influences stretch beyond borders. The collective have found support in diasporic hotspots in and around Europe; their bossa-inflected single ‘Mad’ was the sole focus of a Parisian press stop and the nocturnal breakbeat anthem ‘3 in the Morning’ is indebted to the UK underground. Recorded in Paris, New York and Accra, new single ‘AMINA’ caps off a prolific year on the road, another vitrine of the collective’s versatility and cross-cultural experimentation.
CLASH caught up with SuperJazzClub on their London stopover earlier this year to talk origin stories, the revolving door of their fluid line-up, the desire to create and disseminate music beyond the mainstream Afrobeats takeover, and the anarchic spirit at the heart of their offerings.
