Kiwi soul

At the end of 2010 i discovered the debut album of Electric Wire Hustle and it quickly became one of my favourites. Same as the great Fat Freddy’s Drop, EWF’s members Myele Manzanza, Taay Ninh, Mara TK are all familiar faces in the music scene in Wellington, New Zealand.
Altough everything from NZ sounds laid-back, EWH developed their own sound, a mix of hip-hop, psychedelic and neo-soul with thick drums and percussion layered with synth lines, Fender Rhodes and guitars. The soulful vocals of Mara Tk are influenced by Marvin Gaye and D’Angelo. EWH have already worked with some of their contemporary influences such as Om’Mas Keith (Sa-Ra), Waajeed, Steve Spacek and Recloose.

Currently they are touring Europe and i had the pleasure to see them in the small room of the Melkweg as headliners of a New Zealand Evening. The concert was fantastic and since it was not crowded at all i shot some clips from very close. You can see them on my YouTube channel.

The others acts were also very nice, especially Benny Tones and Ladi6 ft Parks & Julian Dyne. I’m already Looking forward to the next concerts of New Zealands finest in the Melkweg. In september Fat Freddy’s Drop will perform 2 nights and live drum ’n bass band Shapeshifter will perform on september 23.
