Looter Beats

Dramatic, Action Packed, Funky Stuff!

On their debut, «The Legend of the Brown Baron» Looter Beats takes the listener back to the time when cars were advocado-green, sideburns were something you combed and white tennis socks were the porn-stars preferred (and only) clothes.

Looter Beats has their musical roots in the 70's actionmovie soundtracks. With a love for car-chases and «oldschool-porn», drummer and band-leader Mathias Nordholt, along with the rest of the Looters, serves up a steady funk-cocktail of hot-tempered brass-riffs, tight catchy themes and groovy beats. It's all done with such autenticity that the listener either has to smile or get on the floor - often both...

On the debut, Looter Beats are joined by none other than the living legend, Roy Richards, who with his old-school soul vocals, puts the final touch on the album

The tight forms combined with room and the ability for play, gets the energy and warmth all the way over the edge of the stage - and now also all the way from the cold plastic of the compact disc to the listeners speakers.

In his compositions, Nordholt draws on a long line of the great 70's moviecomposers, such as Lalo Schifrin (Mission Impossible, Dirty Harry mm.) og Mikis Theodorakis (Zorba, Serpico mm.), but also names such as Tom Scott, Michael Viners Incredible Bongo Band, Bob James and Deodato can be mentioned as inspirations.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
