Active since 2015, the Montreal electro-jazz duo Topium is the product of a meeting between Jérôme Dupuis-Cloutier (trumpets, keyboards) and Jonathan Gagné (drums, programming). In the first moments of this brand new video, directed by Guillaume Pascale, the two scamps, dressed in protective suits, walk through the corridors of a laboratory, carrying an airtight box with mysterious contents. We don’t know if it’s a nasty virus with a crown, but the substance inside seems to react in a very particular way to the duo’s haunting music. In front of the attentive eyes of the two hooded scientists, colours, shapes and textures unfold, dancing to the rhythm of a hypnotic dub where gliding guitars and the silky volutes of a trumpet evolve. Music lovers fond of what jazz has been offering us for the past few years would do well to listen to it!
