Loka - The Daily Bread



Loka The Daily Bread Paris DJs Mix

Loka's discography isn't hard to follow. All of this psychedelic jazz band's records have been released on leading UK label Ninja Tune. It all started with an exclusive, cinematic, trippy track on the label's 10-year anniversary collection Xen Cuts in 2000. Then 4 years later the band released their first single, the marvelous Beginningless, proving once more that Ninja Tune was THE 21st century jazz label at the time. 6 months passed before Loka re-imagined a Blockhead track, Sunday Seance, as a flurry of drums and gorgeous stringiness. Their first album, Fire Shepherds arrives in 2006 and it's just one of the best of the year. In 2007 founding member Karl Webb (formerly from one of our favorite bands, Super Numeri) splits with the group, leaving Mark Kyriacou (keyboards, electronics and compositions) to team up with members of Loka's live band. A new (digital) 3-track single is planned for november 21st, with the band's second album Passing Place to be released the following week. More than 5 years after the first opus, this new recording is another fantastic piece of epic and cinematic UK jazz, which we're celebrating by inviting Loka for this timeless mix, The Daily Bread, cooked exclusively for Paris DJs. A big thanks goes to Ninja Tune's French promo agency, Ping Pong, who hooked us up with Loka for this!! Now let's hope Loka will get to play live in France...
