Artephis  -  Sat Sep 07, 2019  |  07:45 pm
Admission £ 10.00 ( £ 8.00 concessions)
A contemporary jazz-rock quintet based in Manchester, Artephis comprises some of the North's most creatively diverse young musicians, who met at the Royal Northern College of Music.

Since forming in 2014, Artephis have been committed to realizing outward-looking 'stretch music' that directs the progressive energy of late ‘60s and early ‘70s Miles Davis - the era of ‘On The Corner’, ‘Big Fun’ & ‘Jack Johnson’ - onto the contemporary plane of Christian Scott, Butcher Brown and Brian Blade & The Fellowship, distilling an eclectic sound of their own with an increasingly electronic element. Informed diversely by the musicians’ backgrounds and specialisms including Afrobeat, contemporary classical, funk and hip-hop settings, Artephis compose with a feel for the programmatic, immersing the listener in a familiar, while challenging, sound-space of imaginative textures, explosive and sensitive grooves, and spirited melodies.

Their debut album, ‘All Change No Change’, was released in June 2017 with an accompanying UK tour and aired on Radio 2 by Jamie Cullum, who chose ‘Feroz’ as his BBC Introducing highlight of the year.
