Filtron M is an expanding music platform founded by New York based pianist, keyboarder and composer Manu Koch which serves as a distinctive filter in the age of musical and cultural multiplicity. It is mainly a live act consisting of various units such as Astoria Roots and Unique Afrique that showcase Manu’s compositions and the broad community of international musicians he’s been part of for nearly two decades. The overall emphasis is on each musician’s individuality, improvisation, exploration of groove and rhythm while drawing from a wide range of stylistic and cultural influences.
“Anybody with a taste for avant-garde jazz fusion, ambient over the edge sound is gonna flip over Manu Koch and Filtron M's Mandatory Underground, a terrific four composition EP which sounds like Weather Report one second and some dark angled The XX style the next.” —rocknycliveandrecorded.com
