Jape began in 2003 as a solo project of Dublin musician Richard Egan. Over the years, the band has evolved to
become one of Ireland’s most exciting and energetic live acts.
Jape’s music blends meticulously crafted lyrics with upbeat electronic rhythms. Using an innovative mix of live
instruments, hardware samplers and sequencers, the band create a sound that
encompasses many different styles and spans genres, a sort of gothic pop.
They have been covered by The Raconteurs and won the prestigious Choice Music Prize in 2008. Jape has since toured extensively and produced an array of new
material, some of which will make up the album, 'Ocean of Frequency' which will be released in September 2011 on the Music is for Losers label.
