When a band is selected "Top 10 live acts of the year" it really has to be something special. Thats the case for Hess Is More. A transatlantic music ensemble. 7 international musicians and the captain of the project: the Danish musician Mikkel Hess. These seven musicians, with their unique instrumentation and unorthodox arrangements create a very danceable yet at times puzzling sound. Melodies with quite unusual developments, basslines that have their roots in late 1970 jazz funk and - on Primate - lyrics can haunt you for days: You are not a primate, you are not Maharishi either, but in between there is someone called yourself.
