Hypernova is an explosive phenomenon and the first of its kind. Fusing philosophy, comedy and jazz to provide audiences with a unique musical / theatrical experience. Their aim is not only to entertain, but also to stimulate and challenge audiences' intellectual faculties. Their influences are drawn from a plethora of musical styles including: Renaissance music, be-bop, neo-classical music and drill music.  

As pioneers of the genres Neo-Bebop and Jazz Drill they fuse traditional music with contemporary sounds. Not stopping at music, they draw from philosophy and neuroscience to engage with their audiences' minds in a fashion that is simultaneously intellectual and primitive. All of this is complemented by the nihilistic comedy all of the band partake in whilst on stage.

Hypernova will surely make you move your feet and show you an unforgettable great time!

In an effort to deliver a digital experience as truthful as possible to the Jazz re:freshed ethos, the team has worked relentlessly to recreate the feel and energy of their 17 year long, live weekly residency focussing on stage layout, lighting, audio mix, colour treatment… every single detail has been looked at very carefully for the viewer to feel the unique Jazz re:freshed vibes from the comfort of their home.

While we at Jazz re:freshed have received some funds to bring the weekly back, we still need your donations to bolster artists income for these shows and further support the work of Jazz re:freshed.

Thank you for your generosity and we hope you're enjoying the show!

SUPPORT JAZZ RE:FRESHED from Jazz re:freshed

As a new wave of British jazz has willed itself into being over the past decade, a hefty chunk of that unglamorous below-the-surface work has been put in by the estimable Jazz re:freshed organisation. - Excerpt from The Quietus review 2019

Jazz re:freshed is a small and relentlessly determined organisation.  The sum of our parts create a unique cultural and global movement.  We work on supporting, developing and promoting young and/or Black and/or female emerging artists and bands across multiple platforms.  Please support by buying our merchandise and donating to support our work.  We welcome regular contributions or one-off donations from allies who care about our mission to support and shine a global spotlight on talented young and/or Black British Jazz musicians.
