In 2016, four musicians perform live on SXSW in Texas. After
spending a week in the bustling festival life, the band
members end up having a strange encounter. They spot a
giant, blob-like monster hanging from a tall building in
downtown Austin, which spies on the people walking the
streets below. After finding out that the creature can actually
sing, they decide to name it Ignacio. This is also the title of
Azure Hiptronics’ new album featuring their unique brand of
electrifying, eclectic music, which they describe as
‘ultrafunkatronicjazzhippop’.The Dutch-Italian group released three albums:When She Smiles (2009), Hiptronics (2014) andthe aforementioned Ignacio (2016). Since theirinception, they performed at venues like MASP(São Paulo, BR), SXSW (Austin, USA) and NorthSea Jazz (Rotterdam, NL).
