October 16, 2020 is release day for their self-titled album The Next Movement. After 4 Studio projects in 3 years and several tours, the trio has not only proven their high Productiivity but also found their very distinctive sound. The album has more funk, and more soul, more groove and more emotions. You’ll find more drums, guitars and bass than ever before. The band is at a creative high and heading in a clear direction: Bringing back real musicianship to the overproduced pop landscape.


The album with eight full songs – one of them a classic Beatles cover in a completely new arrangement – is interweaved with short interludes in the form of seasons that are bursting with both humor and masterful craftmanship.


Explosive indie groove-funk-soul with international class made in Bern/Solothurn Switzerland.


The Next Movement:
The fourth studio project is stuffed with groove, neo-soul and neo-funk.


“What, it’s the end of the month again?“ Is the 2020 slogan of The Next Movement. Every month they put our a new single / song premiere, a story, a video to it. All of this leading to their new album showing the trio not only in top form, but also deep in the groove. The three musical heavy workers single-handedly put out their releases, hit the road for tours, reinvented themselves and brought the funk into 2020. October marks the release of the new album and the tour supporting it. Tzwo official album release parties with special guests are scheduled at legendary Mühle Hunziken and Komehl Solothurn.


The Next Movement, led by singer / drummer J.J. Flueck, joined by Pascal „P“ Kaeser on bass & synth and guitar-virtuoso Sam Siegenthaler have gone through it all. The three have worked together over a decade as in-demand musicians and rhythm section (Greis, Nicole Bernegger, William White, Steff la Cheffe, Soul Train, The James Brown Tribute Show, Manillio, Diens, Rogue State Alliance a.m.m.), with over 1000 shows under their belt.

The Next Movement


The funky Trio has risen up as one of the hottest new bands on the scene. With their explosive live-show, superb musicianship and nonchalant humor, they thrilled groove-fans all over the world.


Groove, top-level musicality and good vibes!


Their powerful and convincing shows at Leverkusener Jazztagen (Rockpalast WDR TV coverage), at Georgia’s Black Sea Jazz Festival, Saulkrasti Jazz in Latvia or at Jazztage Dresden propel TNM to one of the top acts in the European groove-scene:


“Prince could also sing to their music: The Next Movement combine entertainment and quality on a very convincing level.”


“The catchiest Funk & Soul sound…”


“The hottest group ever to perfom at Leverkusener Jazztage”


Three musicians that have played over a thousand shows together in a ridiculous amount of settings, making the stage their second home: The Next Movement, led by drummer/singer mastermind J.J. Flueck (reminding of Buddy Miles and Anderson Paak) alongside P. Kaeser on bass / synth and Sam „The Kung-Fu Man“ on guitar are fusing Funk, Neo-Soul and R’n’B with a musical nonchalance recalling Prince. Putting musicianship, entertainment and deep groove into the focus, catapulting Funk into the future, the Trio is truly bringing back „The Glorious Return Of The Funk“. The group is blending influences like Prince, Miles Davis, D’Angelo & Jimi Hendrix into their own fresh mix and deliver a brilliant live performance with rarely seen double duties like Drums/Lead Vocals and Bass Guitar / Synth. Their latest self-titled Album „The Next Movement“ is easily the funkiest thing released in Europe lately. The band is more than ready to deliver their adventurous and compelling live-set out into the world.
