Guest Playlist: Don Kapot

Brussels-based power trio Don Kapot are back with their rousing new album ‘I Love Tempo’ via W.E.R.F. Records.

A lifeboat of free jazz, afrobeat and krautpunk sailed by Giotis Damianidis (bass), Viktor Perdieus (baritone saxophone) and Jakob Warmenbol (drums), the album follows the release of their critically acclaimed 2022 album ‘Un Peu Live’ recorded with Dutch multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and composer Fulco Ottervanger, and described by Bandcamp Daily as a ‘very fun mix of modern jazz and krautrock.’Together, these three creative forces have crafted another album that is fiercely original.

As part of their new album, the trio enlisted the production and mixing skills of Greg Saunier (Deerhoof). In addition to expanding their sound palette, they add new instruments, including keyboards and sampling, while keeping the groove at the core.

With the album out today, what better way to get you in the mood than with a playlist by the trio? The playlist draws on the many influences at play in their music, and we’re so pleased to have them onboard.

“Drawing from the individual and collective inspirations of the band, this playlist reveals the broad palette of colours that forged Don Kapot’s highly personal sound. Enjoy these masterpieces of layered rhythms, screams from the guts, humorous twists and soulful weirdness.”

Let Don Kapot treat your ears to a vibrant and vivid selection, so play it now and enjoy!
