Collaborating and earning lifetime fans in the likes of Madlib, DJ Shadow, Orlando Julius, Quantic and Ethiopian jazz legend Mulatu Astatke, the Heliocentrics are undoubtedly one of the most incredible things to happen in music from the past decade, the band’s unique blend of raw funk, cinematic psychedelia and sci-fi jazz has earned them a cult following.
“Restless, marauding and cacophonous” Mojo
“There’s something about being a band unstuck in time that makes the question of aging and consistency almost beside the point” Pitchfork
The Heliocentrics are a group for which genres are meaningless and boundaries invisible. Since first appearing on DJ Shadow’s 2006 album The Outsider the group have gone on to release a string of records that float through jazz, hip-hop, psych and krautrock.
