Carlos Bica + Daniel Erdmann + DJ Illvibe
I Am The Escaped One
Scintillating concept, amazing bass-playing from Bica, perfectly fitting saxophone from Daniel Erdmann, and DJ Illvibe is a magician of the highest order. Outside the box, unique, and highly recommended.

…This is one of those very few cases where we do not feel any instrumental mismatch – the bass, the saxophone, and the turntables are a cast I’ve never heard before…the three instruments are treated equally in an unconventional way to create a whole that escapes any easy comparison…I Am the Escaped One is an album to which I strongly encourage you to listen to, but it is worth to free your mind before, the joy of listening will be even greater!
– K.S., 5 Stars
Portuguese double bassist Carlos Bica joins forces with German saxophonist Daniel Erdmann and turntablist DJ Illvibe, the son of pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach, for a unique album of improvisation blending experimental and jazz approaches with substantive layers of genre-blending from Illvibe’s record arsenal, all handled with accessible control and lyrical sophistication.
Chamber jazz for the 21st century by a trio that sneaks into rooms where memories are preserved and creaky finds of music are hidden.
