Mikkel Villingshøj Quartet is an artist based in Denmark. The Story of Mikkel Villingshøj Quartet date back in time to the spring of 2020. Suddenly the world we knew was changed drastically. Everybody knows what happened in the following years, but especially for musicians and artists, it felt like being struck by lightning.

For Mikkel Villingshøj Quartet the consequences were huge. The loss of gigs, the shattering of a career built over 20+ years, and a future that looked rather murky, but it was also the spark that relit a musical flame that lives inside Mikkel.

It was time to take matters into his own hands and revisit the initial reason why he ended up spending his whole life behind a drumkit. Although Mikkel Villingshøj Quartet has worked with a vast number of very diverse artists, most noticeably Danish hip-hop supergroup Suspekt, his initial love of music was jazz.

Actually, the powerful collaboration of Mikkel Villingshøj Quartet shines a light on Jazz with the new remix of “Juncture”. The song is packed with soul and a message that you feel in your spirit, as they all come together to give us the more that Jazz is known for, as it pushes us forward in a real way.  

This love, and a desire to move forward, resulted in Mikkel putting together Mikkel Villingshøj Quartet. A band of extraordinary musicians, who helps bring to life Mikkel’s vision of how he wants his jazz to sound.
