Niels Broos and Jamie Peet are two child prodigy musicians, hailing from The Netherlands. Niels started playing keys at the tender age of four, and Jamie started off behind the drumkit at 5. Both have their signature sound and style, which have forged them as two of the most influential musicians in The Netherlands today, when it comes to fusing contemporary styles like jazz, hiphop and electronics. The duo was brought together on stage for the first time by Mondriaan Jazz Festival in 2017. Since then Niels and Jamie performed at festivals like Transition Festival, North Sea Jazz and were featured at the Dutch night at Winter Jazzfest 2020.
The music is totally improvised, with some melodic and rhythmic hooks, with an original analog approach, reminiscent of the New York based duo of Taylor McFerrin and Marcus Gilmore. But Niels and Jamie are less urban and build endless amounts of tension, that reminds the listener of groups like Aphex Twin, Squarepusher and early Autechre. This is the sound of the Dutch underground, the sound of today.
