Halfway between Jazz, Broken Beat and House Music, Emile Londonien, a trio coming straight from … Strasbourg, is emblematic of a French generation that breaks the codes.
Among the groups which make blow a wind of freshness on the jazz scene made in France, Emile Londonien is emblematic of a generation which breaks the codes. A double nod to the name of our famous national saxophonist on the one hand, and to the influences of the British scene like Yussef Kamaal on the other, the name Emile Londonien hides a trio of musicians formed at the Conservatory of Strasbourg: Nils Boyny on keyboards, Matthieu Drago on drums and Théo Tritsch on bass guitar. Children of the clubbing culture, they try to tune it with the tradition of the jazz trio. Their concerts are meant to be an immersive experience halfway between Jazz, Broken Beat and House Music. 2023 is the year of their first album entitled Legacy, recorded with guests such as trumpeter Antoine Berjeaut, saxophonist Léon Phal whom they are close to and a certain … Emile Parisien. With a sense of feeling and improvisation, Emile Londonien mixes organic and sophisticated textures from the electronic sphere, for a result between jazz fervor and irresistible call of the dancefloor. The trio’s mission is clear: to bring their contribution to a jazz scene in perpetual mutation.
