HIGH HØØPS is the sunset escape project of left handed Aquarian Jordan Arts. The multimode artist endeavours to shake modern sonic atmospheres centred in groove and ambience into nostalgic retro worlds with a refreshing spin. Like a reconnaissance mission to a parallel universe.
Bobbing and weaving somewhere between experimental pop and ghettoblaster r&b music, the vocalist, producer and multi-instrumentalist has little respect genre and every desire to blaze the trail.
‘This project only ever existed as a personal escape from the real world and if I can’t set a mood to it or dance to it myself at max volume then it’ll never see the light of day. The rest will figure itself out’ HØØPS admits.
Making his live debut as HIGH HØØPS in support of pop auteur Lorde, he has since shared stages with Kaytranada (XL Recordings), MNDSGN (Stones Throw Records), Harvey Sutherland & Bermuda (Clarity) and this year will debut his all new live show. With a debut full length album nearing completion and features on records with Roland Tings
& MOODS, the HIGH HØØPS sound is looking to find its place in the universe.
