Bobby Rausch call themselves a 'Berlin underground music trio', and call their music 'experimental groove'. With bass clarinet, baritone saxophone, drums and a box full of effects, Lutz Streun, Oleg Hollmann and Jürgen Meyer operate in the space between jazz and hip-hop, digital and analogue, and composition and improvisation in a way that only the sizzling club atmosphere of the capital can generate. And on that subject, the 'Rausch' (intoxication/rapture) in the band name wasn’t chosen at random – the bass-dominated, mystically dark Afro-jazz-rock grooves are designed to put the audience into a trance. Technoid bass valleys, free-jazz brass peaks, stony prog-rock paths – concertgoers become mountaineers who can at times make their way along the addictive sounds, but are pushed at other times to conquer them. That’s how interaction is done these days!
