After the apparent success of their debut album ‘Adventure’, (which has generated over one million album streams on Spotify in just six months), Lydian Collective are now following this up with their new single ‘High 555’. The first release helped to put themselves firmly on the map of the instrumental jazz funk fusion scene, which has has lead onto recent appearances at festivals such as Cheltenham Jazz, ‘So What’s Next’ Festival in The Netherlands, Cambridge Jazz Festival and plays on BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction show; as well as features on Spotify’s ‘The State of Jazz’ and ‘Fusion Fest’ playlists.
After the intricate and rhythmically complex ‘Adventure’ album, they have now shifted gears on this single with a hi-octane four to the floor groove, led by a phat distorted synth bassline!
‘High 555’ takes you through the usual compositional twists and turns that are familiar to Lydian Collective tunes, but this time the focus is on a solid groove.
This single is due to be released on 30 November and will be part of an EP, which is due to be released in Spring next year.
Forthcoming Live dates:
Nov 25th - Cambridge Jazz Festival
Nov 30th - Camden Assembly
Dec 5th / 6th - Jazz Cafe (supporting Billy Cobham).
