Mathias Heise Quadrillion reinvent jazz fusion, having created a completely unique sound combining the chromatic harmonica with new, updated Funk-Rock-Jazz.
Quadrillion’s original blend of funk, rock and jazz is delivered with electrifying guitar solos, squelching synthesizers, and hard-hitting beats to create an immersive experience of grooves. Whilst Mathias Heise’s technical wizardry and jazz credentials on harmonica are a constant standout, his choice of band mates keeps the bar consistently high: Powerful metric trickery is provided by drummer Aksel Stadel Borum, alongside the relentlessly funky bass playing of David Vang and the lush harmonic soundscapes of guitarist Mads Christiansen.
Mathias Heise Quadrillion’s obvious talent and striking live performance have – despite their young age – already made them a sought after group abroad, where they have played at major festivals in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Egypt, Morocco, Poland, and the Czech Republic.
Mathias Heise Quadrillion have the feel of a group destined for bigger stages across Europe incoming years. Good musicianship, a focus on entertainment, and a rich mix of original compositions.”
