Jape at the Top Deck
Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, and now calling Sweden home; Jape began as the solo moniker of Richie Egan – formerly of Redneck Manifesto – and has evolved over the past 6 years into one of the most exciting live acts in Europe.
The band broke into global consciousness in 2008 when The Raconteurs’ Brendan Benson encountered Jape’s track “Floating” while on a trip to Ireland. Benson loved it so much he would soon begin incorporating a cover of it into live sets. Jape found themselves supporting the Jack White-fronted supergroup on stages around the world, and having their track reinterpreted by the likes of Soulwax.
Egan has been part of many bands from an early age, and spent his youth experimenting with four-track tape recorders and sounds. This experimentation provides the foundation of latest album ‘Ocean Of Frequency’, which knits together an eclectic blend of meticulously crafted lyrics and electronic rhythms; with influences ranging from Brian Eno to Caribou.
