In 2002 it all started with Wouter Verwaal who had an idea to perform lounge music on stage. After a few sessions with a DJ, drummer and bass player, we decided to make our own music. Music with its own definition. Bas Deenik joined the band and AbSoulute was born, making music with a fresh mix of Funk, Soul, Jazz and Latin. About 14 years later together with Hans Mulders on drums, Robert Bakker on Bass and lead vocalist Jutta Visser, we are ready to release our Extended Play. 7 songs from Funk to Latin, to Soul with some Jazz flavor and a rocky punch.
