LIVE! is a coming together of two local institutions to provide something new for the community; real live experiences from the best local and international players. Rhythm Section and Peckham Chamber Orchestra (PCO) join forces once again to present an international trio of live musical offerings.
After the incredible success of our first two LIVE! events; last month’s Melbourne double-whammy of SilentJay and Jace XL, Swooping Duck (Hiatus Kaiyote’s rhythm section and improv geniuses) alongside London’s own Shepherd + Reginald Omas Mamode IV and December’s Afrofuturistic extravaganza, we’re hugely proud to present another very special show featuring a Germany-England sonic play-off where everyone is a winner!

Max Graef Band
Born out of a multitude of quality collaborative projects, including founding Money $ex Records and Box aus Holz label, the multi-talented Max Graef formed five-piece Berlin disco jazz ensemble in 2015.
Their acclaimed first album “Dog” released in December 2015 eloquently describes their unique sound – a rich blend of jazz, kraut, soul, funk, electronic and contemporary. Their live game is serious – a classic setup of Fender Rhodes, bass guitar and drums coming along with a truly innovative approach to effects, synthesizes and samplers – expect improvisational virtuosity!
Max Graef Band’s family vibe speaks to the conceptions of Rhythm Section and PCO respectively as well as the union of the two for LIVE! Itself.
It’s a rare treat to witness the force that is the Max Graef Band, currently on their European tour, do not miss Berlin’s finest perform their only London show!
London/Brighton-based duo Danalogue and Betamax describe their sonic output as ‘Alternative Slamming Analogue’- an apt description indeed.
Their two EPs Soccer96 and Jupiter Masterdrive released on WotNot Music to critical acclaim. These prolific lads are also two thirds of The Comet is Coming along with their sax-man Shabaka Hutchings (who performed at December’s LIVE! with TBMO). We’re in for an intergalactic psychedelic drum and bass workout!
Max Graef + KickFlip Mike (DJ)
Rhythm Section regular, Max Graef will be spinning some disks for us alongside Kickflip Mike; Max Graef Band’s drummer, former runway model, and aka ‘The White D’Angelo’. If their Copenhagen Boiler Room set (ft. Wayne Snow) is anything to go by, expect the banging, the sublime and everything in between.
