This summer, launching 29 November 2015, South Africa’s proudest Dance Music Export Goldfish return to their home city of Cape Town to bring their legendary Submerged Sundays summer residency to South Africas’ premier beach club, Shimmy Beach for ten exclusive events.
Classically trained Jazz musicians David Poole and Dominic Peters infuse live instruments with dance beats, creating a celebrated combination of live organic and electronic music in the same vein as electronic legendary acts Groove Armada, Basement Jaxx, St Germain and Faithless.
From their small beginnings as UCT music students, surfing the beaches of Cape Town, Dom and Dave have gone on to become one of the most original and successful live electronic duos in recent times – releasing multiple award-winning albums and masterminding a live DJ show that sees them spend most of their schedule touring internationally, performing to sell out crowds.
“It’s all about live instruments”, says Dominic Peters. “Dave plays the saxophone and flute while I play electric double bass and keyboards. We mix this with dance beats, remix our tracks on the fly… basically we go nuts for the duration of the show… people have called us the re-invention of the DJ, which is a pretty apt description.”
Shimmy Beach Club balances the style of international party life and the laid-back atmosphere of Cape Town, making it a stylish venue to rival Ibiza’s beach club scenes. Goldfish Submerged Sundays are to take place here on 29 November 2015; 6, 13, 20, 27 December 2015 and 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31 January 2016. Goldfish will be joined each week by a line up of international as well as top South African DJ’s with the opening night featuring German dance sensation Stimming. Tickets to these shows can be bought on NuTickets (afterhours.nutickets.co.za) – General Access tickets start at R100 and VIP tickets are being sold for R250. VIP table bookings can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 021 200 7778.
