The Enemy – Kit Downes, Petter Eldh, James Maddren

Kit Downes (piano), Petter Eldh (bass) and James Maddren (drums) are ‘The Enemy’. Based in London and Berlin, they play for the appreciation of expression through complexity – light-speed rhythmic patterns and dense harmonic clusters collide in a unique and formidable combination of voices that has been described as both “rip-roaring” and “mind-boggling”.

The members of the band have all received their own critical acclaim (including a Mercury Music Award Nomination and BBC Jazz Award) as well as having toured the world with some of the finest musicians (Django Bates, Marc Copeland, Thomas Strønen, Marius Neset), but here they shine collectively, as like-minded experimentalists and improvisers.”

“Rip-roaring groove, mind-boggling polyrhythmic drumming, snapping physicality and sweeping piano runs from brittle street grooves”

– John Fordham, The Guardian 2015
