Playing a blend of dark funk, hip-hop and jazz, instrumental band Red Snapper will be performing at Newcastle’s Cluny on Tuesday 30th November.

Since their formation in 1993, Red Snapper have played shows globally and in collaboration with a variety of vocal artists such as Gavin Clarke and Eliza Carthy and have supported the likes of Björk and The Fugees on an international level. They gained even more interest in recent years after their music was featured on El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, and they’ve become well known for their creative remixes, reworking music by Trouble Funk, Edwyn Collins and more.

After a pause on making music, the band released their first single after six years during September 2020. B-Planet is a toe tapper, pairing a clapping beat with a repetitive bass guitar acting almost as a melodic voice on the track. At points, the song pulls away from the expected rhythm and throws the listener into discordant sounds before dragging the audience back into a more comfortable beat, echoing something akin to a hallucinogenic experience. With a psychedelic twist, listening to their unique genre warping material takes the listener by surprise.

Known for their ability to create immersive soundscapes and give strong performances, Red Snapper are sure to take their Newcastle audience on a trippy, auditory adventure.
