After Cosmik Connection and NHX, the saxophonist Gaël Horellou pursues his experiments dedicated to fusion and dancefloor jazz. For the project Nasty Factorz, he has teamed up with New York drummer Ari Hoenig, and composed a repertoire inspired by the most
radical bass music. Together, they propound a beaming and universal music.

Gaël Horellou became well-known while performing for Collectif Mu. His involvement in electrojazz fusion (NHX, Cosmik Connection, Laurent de Wilde …) and his musical talent made him an essential composer in France’s jazz scene.

Ari Hoenig is one of the most prominent drummers in New York. At 43, this unclassifiable musician has recorded a hundred albums with famous collaborators and a few solo albums.
