Amersfoort World Jazz Festival

Kypski alias Thomas Elbers, has been a big behind the decks and beats for over twenty years. The six-time national scratch champion, who ran from Paradiso to Glastonbury, worked as a producer and bandleader (C-Mon, Wreck Fader). He has worked with Daedelus (Brainfeeder), Pete Philly & Perquisite and Caro Emerald and opened live for none other than Philip Glass. Today Kypski is making the advance to a live show in the so-called Modbap0 style, in which his new ‘Syntablism System’ is central. He describes it as “the new art of using a turntable and mixer to create and manipulate sound with modular synthesizers. Improvisational electronic beat excursions, with sounds and music created in the moment – literally ‘from scratch’”. At the beginning of this year, Kypski won the UP:NEXT Scholarship 2021, from the Prince Bernhard Cultuurfonds, with which he can shape his new plans.
