With their new releases, “sMashed” and “Live at Crystal Bay”, Karl Densons Tiny Universe (KDTU) world-class musicians deliver a fresh new sound for rump-shaking aficionados searching for the perfect groove. A multimedia experience with a finger on the pulse of today’s funktronic grooves! The band infuse live funk, acid-jazz and soul with electronic break-beats, drum & bass, world music and killer visuals.
Initially introduced to each other through Karl Denson, these cats have played around the world from the Fillmore in San Francisco to Madison Square Garden and the Blue Note in Tokyo. They have pioneered ground-breaking grooves on a global stage for years and now they have unleashed their full talent and imagination into this deliciously experimental live dance music.
What started as a collaboration in the recording studio quickly became a full blown project to explore new styles (Hip-Hop, Nu-Jazz, Drum-&-Bass, etc.), ultimately harvesting the best qualities of these sounds to perform live what many musicians can only accomplish in a studio. BLUSIRKUT is the sublime union of technology and talent, experience and enlightenment – serving as a platform for the next generation of production, composition & expression. Armed with an arsenal of digital tools, traditional instruments, and technique – their sole intent is simple… they make you move… and they’re great at it…
