“Hailing from Miami, Electric Kif and their undeniable spunk has caught the attention of music lovers through their execution of cosmic funk, rock, soul, and jazz. Their taste and talent bring an unparalleled energy and sound to the stage that inevitably creates a uniquely raw experience through every performance.” – Live for Live Music

Electric Kif  are a band who came together to perform music as an outlet in between sideman and session gigs with other artists ranging from Matt Schofield to Flo Rida…and many more in between. After a couple of years of  hosting these well known jams in Miami, with numerous talented guest musicians joining them, the members realized their original music was taking its own form and getting a great response from those who heard it. They decided to write more, record again, and  perform more of the KIF material.

The band come together creatively from very different backgrounds. Eric Escanes on guitar is from Bordeaux, France, Rodrigo Zambrano on bass is from Mexico City, Jason Matthewson keys proudly hails from Philadelphia, and Armando Lopez on drums from Miami.  Their training and experience combined was bound to generate something special…but their energy and dedication has taken Electric Kif to another level.  Following a performance at one of the festivals, they looked at each other and knew Electric Kif was their calling.  Fast forward to 2016… the band had new recordings under way, started playing outside of Miami, and shifted their focus to launch Electric Kif nationally.

Armed with their latest record,Heist, which was recorded, produced by the quartet in their home studio, and  mixed  at City Of Progress Studio in North Miami, they are thrilled to release this music with distribution partners La Reserve Records. La Reserve is proud to have partnered with Electric Kif this year.  As a new company focused on the music of tomorrow, sourcing and curating the most cutting edge arts from around the world – Electric Kif was a perfect fit with our vision” says Greg Mathews, founder of La Reserve.

The Kif have performed with national acts such as Snarky Puppy, Stanley Jordan,The Main Squeeze,  Kung Fu, Marbin, Naughty Professor, Stratosphere All-Stars, TR3 featuring Tim Reynolds, The Fritz, Progger, and Killiam Shakespeare, as well as South Florida’s finest Roosevelt Collier and The Heavy Pets through a series of deep south and northeast runs.
