Michael Sebastian creates Live Dance Music.

It has the structure of electronic; the freedom of jazz, and the depth of world. His mission is to cultivate connection and share freedom through music and performance.

A South African in London, Sebastian has a strong presence in the city with recent headline shows at EartH Hackney & Colour Factory, support slots for James Blake and Four Tet at Alexandra Palace, as well as being named a top 5 global Sofar artist.

He built this all organically, through years of busking around the city. Sebastian’s work is fuelled by the relationship between music and dance. He finds himself at the intersection between club, contemporary and conscious dance spaces, exploring the emotional and physical benefits of movement and music.

In his live shows he merges contemporary discipline with transcendental spirituality through jazz improvisation and play, often involving a selection of talented collaborators.

This is framed by an objective to create spaces of collective ecstasy, inspired by his time on a variety of dance-floors.
