GroundUp feat. The Malcolm Aiken Quintet

7 pm
1 Alexander St
Vancouver, BC

604 288 1704

Doors 7pm/Show 9:30pm
Pay-What-You-Can

Forged in the heart of Gastown, this bold new project from Canadian trumpeter Malcolm Aiken is the result of his celebrated three year residency right here at Guilt & Company. The sound is dubbed-out jazz-fusion with down tempo grooves, ambient textures, and vintage synths that set the mood for his lyrical trumpet tone. A synergy emanates that recalls the sounds of Bob James and Electric Miles, with modern beats inspired by J Dilla, Flying Lotus and Robert Glasper.

This sound comes down to the amalgamation of three specific styles. They are ingredients that blend to create what is ultimately Brian’s unique recipe for song. The most prominent of these ingredients is his darker take on North American Folk, he works with gritty and abrasive vocal tones that add a timelessness to his voice.
