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 Town’s 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 number 1’s in their home country of Cape Town, South Africa. The new album “Perceptions of Pacha,” released at Miami’s Winter Music Conference March 2008, features 10-brand new Goldfish tracks and the international release contains a second disc featuring a live Goldfish performance video and remixes by top DJ’s from around the world.
Woodsmoke is currently the only retailer of both of the original Goldfish cd’s in the USA you can buy these on the Woodsmoke website.
