Lukas König’s solo project Kœnig has turned away from classical jazz structures to focus more on rap, bass synthesizers, noise and choirs. His interest in working with drums and synthesizers and the genre mix of pop, hip hop, Gamelan and Gnawa has given him yet another chance to prove that his reputation for the fusion of different music styles and acoustic variety is well deserved. Kœnig already supported Bilderbuch on their “Schick Schock” tour in 2015. Now he is frequently touring with them and also joined Bilderbuch as second drummer at their biggest shows yet, two open air concerts at Schloss Schönbrunn in Vienna.

Lukas König is also a member of the Jazzwerkstatt collective Kompost 3 and the drummer of the supergroup 5K HD. Lukas König, who debuted as a composer with the renowned Klangforum Wien in 2018, is a seasoned improvisor on the drum-kit and collaborated with many great artists from jazz to the world of new music. In 2019 he is Artist in Residence at the 40th International Jazzfestival Saalfelden.
