Maribou State are made for the pulsing club circuit, with upcoming shows with Fatboy Slim and The 2 Bears at Warehouse Project, at the Ministry of Sound and at the well-established Watergate superclub in Berlin. They’re the international discotheque trailblazers that will make everyone’s night from Brooklyn to Brighton to Ibiza to the glowstick parties of Croatia and Romania. Their shadowy, eclectic minimal-house sound resembles that of Pantha Du Prince, Modeselektor or Shackleton. They understand what it means to be laconic, using subtle shifts in tempo and gradually overlapping samples to create a kind of mutating ambience that’s deceptively complex.

Their debut EP blended sub-tropical percussion and symbols with intercut, soulful vocal tracks to create a perambulating, worldly sort of nu-jazz, with appearances from Saint Saviour on ‘Scarlet Groove’ and Pedestrian on ‘Rush Don’t Run’. Their subsequent Eps Native and Truths have a more haunting atmosphere about them. Their live tracks fuse all their widely-sourced jams together seamlessly. As a point of reference, check their Boiler Room set, which flails wildly between Afro-jazz, bossanova, minimal, coldwave and funk in the first half-hour.
