Kryptox Label Showcase
Kryptox is a new German label for new forms of jazz, classic and experimental electronica music.
Creative direction by Mathias Modica (Munk/ Gomma). Visual art direction Thomas Kartsolis / Mirko Borsche.
Kryptox starts in 2018 with three artists – all from Germany:
STIMMING X LAMBERT: Techno mastermind Martin Stimming teamed up with Lambert, the rising star of new german piano music. Their subtil and atmospheric kraut-electronica album is out on Kryptox in march. Their new live show is stunning.
JR BB is a 16 person big band that mixes Neo-Jazz with Electronica. Their debut EP is out now. Meera Dugal, impressario of Lincoln Center New York, who invited them to play at the Lincoln, praised them as „very surprising, highly individualistic and cutting-edge!“ In fact not only their album is special but also their liveshow is a bomb.
RALPH HEIDEL is a 24 year old German composer and saxophon virtuoso. His debut opus for stringquartett & rhythm section is out in april on Kryptox. It’s a suite of short emotional scetches that could be described as a sonic voyage through different atmospheric universes. Reminding Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnalds vibes, french impressionism, 1990ies ambient electronica or italian neorealism soundtracks.
Three new, interesting and ffwrd thinking artists at this first KRYPTOX happening. Breaking boundaries. Sonic adventures.
