Jazz Lates: Zeitgeist Freedom Energy Exchange
About Jazz Lates
Jazz Lates is a series of intimate Jazz events that take place in our wonderful living room. On Saturday 2nd July it is with great pleasure that we welcome Zeitgeist Freedom Energy Exchange to the living room stage.
About the band
Zeitgeist Freedom Energy Exchange is the meeting point of improvisation and dance music. Headed up by drummer Ziggy Zeitgeist, a staple of the Australian music scene, most prominently touring and recording with Melbourne Nu-Soul/ future-jazz collective ‘30/70’. Ziggy’s music has already been championed across the breadth of the jazz and dance world, with support from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Kamaal Williams, Byron the Aquarius and Alexander Nut just to name a few.
Growing up in Australia, with no real club culture in sight, Ziggy’s formative years were at a ‘bush doof’ – an outback rave where speakers were driven to remote lands and dance music would blast from the wee hours in the morning to the wee hours at night. This is what Ziggy describes as the playground of Australian Electronic Music. “This is our culture of electronic music. It’s about exploring the spectrum of consciousness and a connection with ourselves, one another and the land.”
Z*F*E*X is the synthesis of dance music in human form. A live band experience humanising the extended DJ set. Heavily influenced by club culture and transcendent psychedelic experiences – Z*F*E*X is a continuous odyssey of sound, where synths intertwine with flutes, jazz drums are played with the raw energy of classic broken beat records, and natures call and response is mimicked in musical form.
Secondary act: Good Room ft. Sanoy (DJ set)
Good Room is a series of free club nights, taking place after our Saturday Jazz Lates. We are delighted to present a very special night of music this week as we welcome Sanoy for a unique DJ set until close. More info on the event here.
