AUG 3 / Amsterdamse Bos
Jacco Gardner and Nic Mauskovic'Bruxas is the exhausting sweet smell of exotic, retro-wave-kraut-rock, wrapped up in a summery jambory, as if performed by a troop of Bossa-musicians on the beaches of Rio. Garnder is already somewhat of a cult figure in his native-Netherlands home, with self-styled records that lead to comparisons with the likes of Tame Impala and Broadcast. Bruxas sees him team up once more with partner Nic Mauskovic, and Jungle By Night's Tienson adding live percussion as they explore more percussive, house grooves for the beach. Their debut EP on Dekmantel was critically well-received, and with more tunes coming on the label in 2018, expect a big year for this talented duo.
