Hoquets is set to bring its Belgotronics sound to The Vortex Jazz Club in London on June 8, 2012 at 19:00.
Influenced by the Congotronics groups and their instruments made out of recycled materials, the members of Hoquets – pronounced “OK” – use a similar attitude : this Belgian/American/French trio mostly play with instruments that they invent and construct out of wooden boards, broken strings, tin cans, etc. in their Brussels workshop.
Hoquets are inspired by indie pop, funk, hip hop, punk, sound art and the eccentricity of their homeland, Belgium.
Their debut album Belgotronics is now available on Crammed Discs and features remarkable guests such as Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Naoki Otani (Maher Shalal Hash Baz), Yann Tambour (Stranded Horse), Marc Melià Sobrevias & Tanja Frinta (Lonely Drifter Karen).
Venue address: 11 Gillet Street, Stoke Newington, London, N16 8JH
