Introducing ALTREGO - aka Belgian-born/London-based multi-instrumentalist/producer Jasper Erkens - who is set to release his first EP on June 16th via Bonka Circus. All tracks were mixed by Valgeir Sigurdsson (Sigur R¢s, Damon Albarn).
After several experimental outings and undaunted by the realisation that "writing a track is only about 35-40% fun." Erkens conceived ALTREGO, an umbrella identity for his remixes, compositions and live performances (augmented onstage by a pair of co-conspirators).
Living at the crossroads between dance funk and the dirtiest sounds of the '80's, filthy beats and basslines augmented with effortlessly catchy pop hooks, ALTREGO also regularly works with visual artists, the latest collaboration ending in the superb video for lead track 'Miraculous Epiphanies'
Highlights of a packed summer calendar include a performance at the legendary Rock Werchter Festival in Belgium, where ALTREGO is the only unsigned act on a bill that includes Metallica, Arctic Monkeys and Pearl Jam.
