With a sure hand, good taste in tunes and a firm grasp of the evening, Mitch offers an outstanding show which can only be described as a groove sensation.
Mitch & The Alives (The Live Band)
Mitch Alive (Turntables/ Percussion),
Yatziv Caspi (Drums), Noriaki Hosoya (Bass).
This is a Groove project from 3 musicians who are searching for a new way each using their own unique musical background and combining their experiences to take music in a new direction.
The creativity of modern turntablism is combined with the dynamic presence of acoustic instruments.
Yatziv Caspi electrifies the air with his incredible drums, Noriaki Hosoya brings the strings on the the bass guitar to life and Mitch Alive takes care of business with good old vinyl.
Fitting no standard genre, the project moves in its own direction and blazes its own trail.
The focus is on grooves to dance to and jazz, funk and soul are strong influences on the project's direction.
As an accomplished beat-juggler, Mitch Alive has mastered the ability to create melodies and rhythms using harmonies and breaks from vinyl. New interpretations of classical music, raw groove and musical collages form again and again around his mixer. The drummer Yatziv Caspi is always good for a musical surprise
Hosoya´s bass forms the backbone, accentuates the rhythm and makes the people move. The trio mix breakbeat with jazz, trip-hop with African rhythm. Jazz impros move into Soul & Funk. These three supply repeatedly daring rhythm battles.
This is a show full of action and should not be missed.
