Niels Broos

Saturday 1 June

The name Niels Broos will quickly pop up on the shortlist of best Dutch sonic innovators. Broos was a vital part of Colin Benders’ now-defunct Kyteman Orchestra and worked with, among others, Binkbeats and Jameszoo. By himself, he conjures a dazzling tapestry of jazz workouts, electronics and hip-hop, glistened with the warm sound of electric piano and vintage synths. With a number of engrossing EPs under his belt, he now has more than enough material for a gripping live show, utilizing the dynamics of production and improvisation. Niels Broos is equally adept at soulful, subtle compositions as the more wayward discordant sprawls.
