[PREMIERE] Live House Duo GoldFish Deliver Uplifting 13-Track Album 'Late Night People' + Interview

Goldfish Late Night People Art

Live electronic act GoldFish have been making waves over the years and now are making their way back on the site for the premiere of their new album Late Night People we’ve been waiting for. The South African duo recently made the move to southern California and have delivered a bright 13-track album we’ll surely be coming back to.

GoldFish have a knack for crafting some incredibly catchy music and they’ve only gotten better and better over time. Throughout Late Night People’s 13 tracks they tap a number of different influences, effortlessly blending electronic production and organic instruments.

Per usual, their unique style of house is apparent with a dance-driven approach making use of bouncing, deep basslines, jazzy and bright melodies with uplifting vocals while sax lines are thrown in perfectly. They switch things up on a couple tracks with “No One Has To Know” being a more chilled-out, horn filled instrumental working incredibly well with the vocals as they really show off their versatility to craft a more subdued track from what we’re used to hearing from GoldFish.

Along with this premiere we had the pleasure of speaking with the duo about this release so be sure to check out our interview below. See dates for album releases parties below as well! Enjoy!

GoldFish - Late Night People

How did moving to the U.S. change your musical career?

Moving to the US is like swapping from a skateboard to a rocket ship. Cape Town will always be home, it is what shaped and grew us - and gave us the sound and world view we have today. But being here in the States means we can access so much more without having to travel 30 hours. That is just the reality of it and we’re loving all the new challenges of breaking into a new market as huge as the US. So far it’s been absolutely insane.

Is there a particular song on the project you enjoyed making the most?

All the songs had their moments… and some definitely came together easier than others. But we had a lot of fun making ’No one has to know’ which we co-wrote with Ashe. She’s an amazing singer and songwriter. Late Night People with Soweto Kinch was also super fun. He is the most ridiculously talented Rapper and Sax Player and we really let loose creatively on this one. ‘Talk to me’ and ‘Bad luck and Trouble’ were also fun from a more dancefloor perspective. Bringing the analogue synth vibes counterpointed with acoustic samples of piano and sax/flute/clarinet is our whole deal. We always try bring that analogue feel to our stuff, whether it is a chill track or a banger.

What is the story and meaning behind this new project?

The story is make cool songs and do rad shit. Always has been. Late Night People is a collection of songs that we could release as one entity and have it make sense together. We really relish making albums as just doing singles all the time can force you down a certain path of expectations. That said, making albums is really hard because it feels far more of a statement than a single every couple months. It’s forever.

For those that haven’t had the chance to catch you perform, could you describe your live show and how you incorporate instruments with electronic production?

It’s a combination of live instruments including Sax, Flute, Keys and Electric Double Bass, smashed together with electronic beats into hybrid experience. We bring the excitement of a live band to the dancefloor. 

How did you approach this album differently than your previous works?

The approach is honestly the same every time. Make the best music we can and create stuff we can live with listening to in 10 years.

Malaa Shares Funky New Track “Paris 96'” [Free Download]

Malaa 96
Does Malaa really exist? Is the person behind the mask some kind of enigmatic superproducer? Is Malaa Tchami and DJ Snake’s side project? No one can say for sure, but does it really even matter? From ridiculously infectious singles such as “Bylina” and "Belleville" to highly anticipated ‘Who is Malaa’ mixes, all that really matters at this point is that Malaa is a powerhouse of a producer, and today they’ve reconfirmed it yet again with a new single titled “Paris 96’”.
 
Malaa’s latest offering is a refreshing mixup of funk, house and soul that’s sure to get the dancefloor moving. From the start, Malaa dials in the old school vibes, blending some hard-hitting drums in with a sample from René & Angela’s “I Love You More”. Around the 1:36 mark, Notorious B.I.G. fans are sure to notice a sample from Biggy and Jay-Z’s “I Love the Dough” (which also samples René & Angela’s 1981 hit), before the track jumps into a old school funk-inspired bridge. Stream and download Malaa’s new track “Paris 96'” below and enjoy!
