“I believe I just witnessed the future of live dance music”

“Where on earth did this material come from ?"

- Jay Ruttenberg, The Lowbrow Reader 

 

“Top 10 best live acts of 2014”

- GlitterballNYC

 

“Spot got schooled in genre anarchy and the alternative party”

- Gaffa Magazine, review of Hess Is More live performance at Spot Festival 2015. 

 

 

These 6 musicians, with their unique instrumentation and unorthodox arrangements create a very danceable yet at times puzzling concert. Catchy melodies and chant like lyrics can haunt you for days: “You are not a primate, you are not Maharishi either, but in between there is someone called yourself”. 

 

Hess Is More started out as an electronic solo project for Danish musician Mikkel Hess. Through 5 albums and various tours and collaborations the project has developed into a full blown Transatlantic Live Music Ensemble, working with a more collective approach.

Their new album “Myheadisaballroom / Whonoeedsapalaceanyway” (Concierge Records / This Is Care Of) was written and arranged during the group’s residency at Clocktower Gallery in downtown New York. The album is a celebration of the energy and interplay of the live ensemble - sounding in the borderland between electronic dance music, afrobeat, krautrock and jazz. 

 

 

- The ensemble has performed at a long list of international festivals and venues, including concerts in Sao Paolo, Montreal, Istanbul, Moscow, Copenhagen…. and New York!

 

- Hess Is More has over the years received various awards and nominations, including “Danish Music Award Jazz” and a selection into “Top 10 best music of the year” by Time Out Magazine New York.

 

- Hess Is More counts much sought after musicians from New York bands such as Midnight Magic, Low Mentality, Candy Shop Boys, Listening Center, Volunteeer & San Fermin. 

 

- Mikkel Hess is also known for writing and producing music for film and theatre - later works include collaborations with The Royal Danish Ballet and orchestral score for the feature film “When Animals Dream” which was premiered as part of “Selection de la Critique” at Cannes Film Festival 2014.
