Guitarist Bert Dockx, bassist Fred Lyenn Jacques and drummer Steven Cassiers are the talented trio Dans Dans. Ever since the 2012 release of their debut they have offered a fascinating blend of jazz, rock and psychedelic blues, incorporating elements of film noir as well. It’s instrumental, clever, engaging and very catchy at times.
Their fifth album “Zink” follows the same vision of experimental jazz, post-rock and psychedelia. “Zink” is an intriguing, layered album that blends several styles organically to a mesmerizing whole. The only genre description we can think of at this point is simply ‘Dans Dans’; it’s just that unique. After memorable performances at North Sea Jazz, Cactusfestival, Gent Jazz and Pukkelpop, the band is now coming back to Nijmegen for a show.
“Zink is Dans Dans at the peak of their powers. It’s a breathtakingly beautiful and intriguing musical trip that, in all its intimacy and euphoria, blows you away emotionally.” – Written in Music
