“…these two freeform improvisation geniuses from South Africa are a real find. Using classic instruments to bring dance music to life, Dominic Peters and David Poole really are the sh*t. Prepare to be amazed! We Love ‘em!”- DJ Mag

It might be hard to imagine that one of the hottest live electronic acts in the world right now originates from a small city on the southern-most tip of Africa, but the success story behind Cape Town’s Dance phenomenon Goldfish, has been nothing short of extraordinary.

From their small beginnings as music students, recording their 1st track in a bedroom with little more than a sax, a double bass and a couple of synths, these two househead-jazz-multi-instrumentalists are seriously onto something. That ‘something’ resulted in the boys suddenly finding themselves on stages from New York to Tokyo, living in airports and maintaining a grueling international tours schedule showcasing their unique brand of Live instruments and Dance Music – regularly turning sedate dance floors into something closer resembling a football match. It’s no wonder then, that club super-brand Pacha snapped them up for a residency at their flagship club Pacha Ibiza, their artist album Perceptions of Pacha cracking a top 10 on iTunes Dance Charts, and everyone from Pete Tong, Faithless, Sander Kleinenberg, Fedde Le Grande and Dr Dre all giving Goldfish props after witnessing the Goldfish live show.

Dom and Dave, fondly known as ‘The Fishies’ to their legions of loyal fans, have maintained a touring schedule that has seen them collect passport ink in 22 countries, and perform over 190 shows last year alone, including prestigious festivals Ultra Festival Miami, Sensation White Amsterdam, Nelson Mandela’s 46664, Dance Valley, Earthdance, Get loaded in the Park, Glastonbury, as well as continuing their residency at the legendary Pacha Ibiza, appearing alongside the likes of Basement Jaxx, Fedde le Grande, David Guetta, Will.I.Am, Erick Morillo, Faithless, and Paul Oakenfold.

If you’ve seen them live, you will agree that ‘Re-invention of the DJ’ is about as close as you can get to describing what they do. Both trained Jazz musicians and competent in a vast array of instruments, the duo seamlessly merges live instruments including Double Bass, Saxophone, Keyboards, Flute, and Vocals with Samplers, Effects, Synths and a healthy dollop of freeform improvisation, remixing their album tracks differently each show - Goldfish have hit a nerve on dance floors across the world.

Along the way they've taken over the reigns of DJ-legend Pete Tong to mix the sixth installment of Pure Pacha, cracked the nod to remix Bob Marley's iconic I Shot the Sheriff, Nominated for best alternative act at the MTV Africa awards, Mixed the cover-mount CF for DJ Mag and performed for Nelson Mandela as ambassadors of his 46664 campaign.

Back at home, Platinum sales cement their status as one of South Africa’s biggest acts, their track This Is How It Goes holding the title for the most played song on National Radio, a record-breaking 8 South African Music Award nominations, numerous #1 and top 10 hits, Artist of the year by IOL, Best Live Act by and 2 SAMA’s for Best Dance Album and Best Producer in 2009.

With a fearsome reputation for a live show that saturates the senses, tracks that are as comfortable on daytime radio as they are on the dancefloor, and an unstoppable work and touring ethic, this duo has reached the tipping point. Watch this space.

"GOLDFISH are without doubt the most exciting live band in the country at the moment. Their unique blend of deep house grooves, live instruments and hypnotic vocal samples have made them the must-see band of the year." - Anything Goes More
