M.A BEAT! like to qualify their music as electronica. We can also say that this band formed organically. A trio today, the project was born in 2012 with the EP Arbor under the impulsion of Samy Abboud, who was passionate about producing & textures.
Louis Treffel joined Samy and they released together the EP Pushing Forms. The sound is a mixture of electronic music and acoustic instruments. It was supported by Gilles Peterson and Radio Nova.
Adrien Legay, jazz drummer, joined the band first to play on stage and will also be involved in the composition of the EPs Age of Wander, Split and the debut album Drowning For Love.
With a lot of different and common influences, M.A BEAT! is a boiling electro-acoustic music where organic sounds, world, jazz, rock are integrated in an exotic and electronic environment. French radio station Nova once described their sound as « Drums dancing in your head. Smart music without being nerdy, real beauty ».
The search for new experimentation goes beyond the walls of the studio. M.A BEAT! love to collaborate with a lot of musicians like the legendary Shawn Lee. A unique collaboration that came to life in Paris for two shows with a big band forming M.A BEAT! Ensemble.
On stage, the trio MPC / bass & keyboards / drums brings a strong live dynamic. Some people hear world music, some hazz, psychedelic or even post rock. Everybody agrees that the energy and the mix is unique.
The band toured in UK, Japan, France, Belgium & Luxembourg and aim to play in Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Russia, Kazakhstan USA & Canada in 2016/2017.
