It's hard to imagine that one of the most exciting live electronica acts in the world right now comes from a small city on the southern-most tip of Africa. But the success story behind Cape Towns' electronica phenomenon Goldfish, has been nothing short of extraordinary. Two Jazz musos hook up while studying music at varsity, and form a live electronic duo. They record an album themselves with little more than a double bass, a saxophone and a couple of synths. This self-released 'underground' album, Caught In The Loop, goes on to propel them into the stratosphere, with a cult-like following and numerous #1s in their home country. They take their incendiary multiple-instrument live act across the globe, with sold-out shows from Ibiza to Tokyo, from Dubai to Cannes. They open for giants Fatboy Slim, Mr. Scruff, The Audio Bully's, Paul van Dyk, Pete Tong and Stereo MC's. They are hailed as the Re-invention of the DJ, and voted best live act in South Africa.
This is Dominic Peters and David Poole, the unassuming surfer/jazz muso/electronic maniacs that are Goldfish. You couldn't find two guys more passionate about music, and if you've seen their live show, you will agree that 'Re-invention of the DJ' is about as close as you can get to describing what they do. Combining live instruments like Double bass, Saxophones, Keyboards, Flute, and Vocals with Samplers, Effects, Synths and a healthy dollop of freeform improvisation, Goldfish have hit a nerve on dance floors across the world.
