Goldfish Bring Their International Flavor To The Bowery Ballroom
Hailing from South Africa Goldish is a fantastically funky duo who blend the sophistication of jazz, the effervescence of electronic music and the soul of African pop into a delightfully infectious end product. Goldfish is definitely one of the most refreshing acts to hit the scene in quite some time. While some acts use jazz as a periphery element to add some spice to their sound, Goldfish have an ingrained funk vibe that is vividly portrayed in their music. On Friday November 25 Goldfish will be teaming up with the daring young DJ JackLNDN to take over Bowery Ballroom for a night of groovy tunes.
From their beginnings as music students surfing and chilling on the beaches of coastal Cape Town, Dominic Peters and David Poole have gone on to become one of the most original production teams in recent history, creating award-winning albums and developing a live DJ show that blends recorded sound with live percussion, string, woodwind and brass, blowing through all genres and surpassing all expectations.
Their debut album Caught In The Loop, was a phenomenal harbinger of what was to come from Goldfish. The do’s distinctly smooth and languorous style caught the attention of numerous well-respected taste-makers like Sebastian Ingrosso, Fedde Le Grand and most notably Radio 1’s Pete Tong who named Caught In The Loop as his Album Of The Summer in 2005. Five years later Goldfish returned with their third studio album. 2010’s Get Busy Living cemented them as one of South Africa’s biggest musical exports worldwide.
Goldfish have placed their stamp on the world of electronic music with massive performances at Glastonbury, Sensation White, Ultra Music Festival Miami and South Africa, 46664, Wakarusa, Mysteryland (US) and Electric Forest. Goldfish have maintained a surging momentum for over a decade and the group are ready to hit New York once again. With JackLNDN, supporting Goldfish at the Bowery Ballroom this Friday’s show is shaping up to be a delicious night of dancing. Grab your tickets for this Friday’s show right here!
