Jazz, Electronic | Portico Quartet is a British band that combines Jazz with electronic music. They were formed in 2005. They are known for their use of the hang, a modern percussion instrument. Portico Quartet have defied categorisation over the course of six studio albums. From their 2007 Mercury Music Prize nominated breakthrough Knee-Deep in the North Sea through to the longform minimalist inspired Terrain in 2021. Their newest electronic driven album Monument shows the band at their most direct, with a streamlined, rhythmic sound. Full of precisely sculpted ideas combining human touch with electronic efficiency, Monument displays the acclaimed widescreen minimalists at their best.
