With its rich textures and multitude of dynamic expressions, the music of FLUX stimulates the senses, inviting the listener to be carried away. The sound of FLUX draws you into a universe where music takes on myriad shapes and colors, virtually demanding that the listener assume an active role.

News

Oct. 25: Everything is ready for next weeks tour - “Made in Denmark”. We’ll do three gigs in a week where danish music is celebrated all over the country.
Aug. 7: The last couple of months I been writing new stuff to be presented this autumn. The material is intended for FLUXs second album to be recorded in early 2015.

Reviews

Eyal Hareuveni, All About Jazz

Jakobsen's well-crafted compositions have a strong melodic approach but with enough suggestive segments that invite the Flux members to expand and to draw these compositions to more open, poetic ends……..

"A New Beginning" and "Sunday Morning in Late Winter" have dramatic narratives, its tension is built slowly and both shift between energetic, playful parts to darker, enigmatic segments…….

A promising debut.

Ivan Rud, Gaffa

Relationships et lytteværdigt album……

Vagn Rosell, musiker, arrangør og jazz connaisseur

En utroligt velspillet og homogen plade med jeres helt egen lyd. Stort tillykke med udgivelsen!
