Electric Beethoven

On Friday, December 16th, Electric Beethoven will release their long-awaited double LP Hear No Evil via Color Red. Stemming from the mind of eclectic bassist and multi-instrumentalist, Reed Mathis, the improvising funk-rock project infuses elements of jazz and EDM based 100% on the compositions of Ludwig Van Beethoven. The musicians improvise with the intention to heal themselves and the listener through authentic grooves and excited discovery.

"New Path" is Reed Mathis’ rearrangement of the 2nd movement of Beethoven's Piano Sonata #8. When saxophonist Karl Denson (Rolling Stones, Greyboy Allstars, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe) and Mathis began talking about how we would approach this classic piece of music, they hit immediately on our shared love of Charlie Parker.

On Friday, March 4th, Reed Mathis’ Electric Beethoven will release "The Path," the third digital single off of a monthly series leading up to the release of his double LP Hear No Evil coming out August 4, 2022.

Today, Reed Mathis’ Electric Beethoven has released "To Love the World," a brand new single that accompanies last week's release "Ramps & Vamps" in a digital 45.  The eclectic bassist's "Classical Dance Music" project is embarking on a monthly release series in collaboration with Color Red leading up to the release of a double LP entitled Hear No Evil that will be available worldwide summer 2022.
