Electric Wire Hustle
Since departing New Zealand in March, Electric Wire Hustle have got some serious mileage out of their suitcases with shows across America and Europe. Highlights include performing at the incredible SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas, performing after their heroes, The Roots, at Hungary's massive Sziget Festival and with the mediterranean sea as their backdrop at Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festival in Sète, France.
Electric Wire Hustle are stoked to be back in New Zealand for summer and as drummer, Myele Manzanza says, “there's nothing quite like a hometown crowd at San Fran Bathhouse” so with a selection of Wellington's finest local Djs in support, EWH will be laying down their soulful sounds and previewing material from their forthcoming sophomore album at Wellington's San Francisco Bathhouse on both Thursday 29th and Friday 30th of November.
Electric Wire Hustle will be kicking off the festive season early alongside Djs Redbird Jnr, LRD JXN, Ayesha and Don Luchito at San Francisco Bathhouse Wellington Thursday 29 & Friday 30 November.
About Electric Wire Hustle: Wellington-based future-soul super-trio. Their sound references Marvin Gaye, Charles Mingus and Funkadelic, and reaches forward to forward to touch J-Dilla, the Platinum Pied Pipers and Sa-Ra.
