MORE ABOUT ANTIMATADOR
An 8 man band from the South West UK, fuse cerebral vocals, tricksy horn licks, huge synths and earthy rhythms. They are a multi genre highly skilled outfit with NEW, ORIGINAL music spanning hip-hop, funk, jazz, electronica, soul, rock and DnB.
South West based ANTIMATADOR deliver a must see live show which goes off like nuclear explosion of high energy, dancing and positive vibes. The band launched in January 2014, formed from a group of professional session musicians with a long history of working together in high profile projects and with thousands of live shows under their belts. They wanted to expand their creative output and deliver an original sound through well-crafted tunes and the highest levels of musicianship. Raised on a rich diet of jazz, funk, soul, hip-hop and electronica from bands such as Rudimental, Snarky Puppy and Break Science, ANTIMATADOR are crafting a unique sound all their own that demands attention.
Since the bands formation in 2014, they have written and recorded their debut album ‘Find Your Way’ (working title) due for release in 2016. The preview self titled single has created a huge buzz so far with James Santer of BBC introducing Devon describing it as ‘a banger of a tune’ and the band as ‘breathtaking’. The tune had its first BBC Radio 1 Introducing airplay in July 2015.
Plymouth Herald describe the band as ‘an unbelievably good band, kicking with electro-chemistry’ and have featured the band several times as the lead story in the What’s On Plymouth guide.
