The project Reclaim The Beats sets out to find new approaches to rythm and tempo within the field of sonic free improvisation.
We had our first musical meeting at the Improcon Festival in Croatia in 2017 and in May this year we reunited for a music residency at Gerlesborgs Artschool on the westcoast of Sweden.
Our ambition to work with beats led us to a simple deconstruction of some hiphop influences wich we then incorporated into our music. These fragments of sounds, beats, samples and lyrics became the source material in free improvisations. Doing things none of us had ever done before made us come up with something out of the ordinary. A somewhat twisted, halucinating and truely altenative approach to both of the genres.
A new kind of improv, a new kind of hiphop.
And we called it Messy.
