about

The Belgian Ghent-based quartet KABAS releases its debut album ʻAbelʼ in April 2016. The international release tour starts on the 7th of April in Antwerp. Later that month KABAS will play in Berlin, Amsterdam, The Hague, Lille, Ghent, Liège, Brussels, Lokeren and Herent.

ʻAbelʼ will appear on the El Negocito Records label (eNR044) both on vinyl and on cd. The production and recording of the album were made possible by crowd-funding and the support of the Ghent Jazz Festival, Jazz Middelheim and JazzLab Series.

The recording session for ʻAbelʼ took place in the AudioWorkx studio in Hoogstraten (NL) in cooperation with Belgium's most promising producer Jasper Maekelberg, known for his work with Jef Neve, Tsar B, Marble Sounds, Faces On TV, Nordmann, Douglas Firs and others.
The music on this album is mixed live by Maekelberg during the recording. This specific method of producing emphasizes the impact of the moment and had an undeniable effect on the interplay of the musicians in the studio.
The album has been mastered twice by Vincent De Bast, both for vinyl as for cd.

KABAS is flute player Jan Daelman, pianist Thijs Troch, bassist Nils Vermeulen en percussionist Elias Devoldere. These four impro-youngsters are fearless in their search for sound and interaction. They improvise in the moment and try to create compositions without limiting their selves to fixed structures or themes.

The members of KABAS are also active and visible in many other projects. Jan Daelman and Thijs Troch are known as the duo ʻKeenrohʼ, they recently received a lot of attention with their ʻKeenroh XLʼ project. Together with bass player Nils Vermeulen they are part of ʻResiduum Free Unitʼ, a project with drone-specialist Dirk Serries on guitar and drummer Sigfried Burroughs. Troch and Vermeulen, together with Burroughs on drums, also form the trio ʻJukwaaʼ, which just released its second album ʻHarbinger Of Imminent Ruinʼ. Drummer Elias Devoldere is best known for his role in bands such as ʻNordmannʼ, ʻJohn Ghostʼ, ʻHypochristmutreefuzzʼ and his new project ʻHastʼ.
