Cykada is yet another group that’s emerged from London’s bustling, highly collaborative jazz scene. Next month, the six-piece will release their self-titled debut, which features the hyperactive and totally infectious “Dimension Stepper.”
The dazzling track is an audacious mix of various influences, from West African highlife to Eastern European jazz. It’s a showcase particularly for the kinetic rhythm section that is drummer Timmy Doyle and bassist Jamie Benzies.
Cykada is out March 22 via Astigmatic Records. Listen to “Dimension Stepper” below:
