Description :YOKAI: Japanese term referring to the surreal world of demons, spirits, bizarre entities–as funny they can be frightening-that interact with humans, sometimes through their dreams, to draw attention to the unseen(able) side of things.

About the band : Created in Brussels in 2011, Yôkaïis currently boasting a line-up of 8 multi-instrumentalists out of jazz, rock & improvisation scenes. Initially heavily inspired by ethio-jazz, their psychedelic soup has since integrated heavier dosis of ‘afro-kraut' distortions and layers of retro-future synths. Yôkaï's live performances tend to give an ever larger space to improvisation and exploration, making each show unique; their organic music bringing cosmic vibes and itchy feet to their audience!

About the album : After self-releasing an EP exclusively on vinyl or on digital codes in 2015, Yôkaïis back on stage to present their first studio album. It is quite a kaleidoscopic trip where the band's singular sound and aventurous spirit is caught on wax but doesn't sound square for all that. Eight tracks of tight originals, hypnotic grooves and raw improvisations, crossing bridges and blurring boundaries between jazz, ethnic music and psychedelic rock. From Plutonia, the bewitching opening track to the dauntingDaphné, from the exhilarating ArgotoEuonymus's sustained tension, the record takes us upside down through its echoing soundscapes. Then voices appear out of blue onPetit Indienn°3, as would some yokais do in their Japanese evergreens. Sometimes, one doesn't want to break free from certain spells...

Line-up : Frédéric Becker: saxophones alto et baryton | Jordi Grognard: clarinet, bass clarinet, tenor saxophone, flute | Eric Bribosia: fender rhodes, keyboards | Yannick Dupont: drum, percussion | Louis Evrard: drum | Axel Gilain: electric bass, double bass, moog synth | Clément Nourry: electric guitar | Ivan Tirtiaux: electric guitar
