"An intense, hypnotic and almost continuous journey through mesmerising repetitive motifs, crisply and carefully executed sound worlds, elemental soloing and frankly thrilling musical peaks" THE TIMES

Graham Costello's STRATA are one of the most exciting and innovative bands on the Scottish jazz scene and beyond. Their music blends stylistic elements of jazz, minimalism, and celebrated progressive/noise bands together with a strong DIY ethic, winning over audiences with towering dynamics and a raw and genuine enthusiasm. Pushing the boundaries of the genres, they create a new unique sound-world combining high-energy polyrhythms, improvisation and collective groove.

Musically it fuses the energy of post-punk and noise rock with the unhinged improvisation of jazz. "OBELISK" and the band as a whole aim to break down the barriers between the independent scene and the jazz scene.Their 2019 self-released debut album "OBELISK" has been long-listed for Scottish Album of the Year and 2020 will see a new record release under Gearbox Records!

"Startling, explodes definitions to seize fresh space" CLASH MAGAZINE

Here they are in their 4 piece incarnation. Expect late night energy, ferocious sounds for head and feet, and the classic Jazz Bar Late vibe.

PLUS the Queen of the Glasgow club scene: Rebecca Vasmant, spinning some of the hottest jazz-funk-house records to keep you going all night!

STRATA are on stage at 12:15 am.
