Johannesburg - Electronic duo Goldfish have revealed that they are collaborating with a number of big-name international artists.
The Cape Town duo, who are currently in Ibiza, Spain, would not reveal exactly which artists they were working with, but said they were very “excited”. “We are in remix mode, between all the touring, with a couple of big artists,” said David Poole.
“We can’t mention names for now but it’s exciting stuff. Think the King of Pop... and the second one is probably the new King of Pop... but giving them a Goldfish spin.”
Poole said he and band member Dominic Peters had also been working with Dutch artist Bakermat and French producer DIMMI with songs that would soon be released.
Goldfish have also been announced as the headline act for the Jameson Vic Falls Music Carnival this year.
The event, which is recognised as one of the biggest music festivals in Africa, will take place on New Year’s Eve at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.
Goldfish will be joined by fellow Capetonians Beatenberg as well as Zimbabwean legend Oliver “Tuku” Mtukudzi and infamous Hararian reggae-dancehall champion Winky D as the main acts.
It will be the first time that Goldfish will be performing in Zimbabwe and they say they are looking forward to making their debut. “We are super excited actually,” said Poole.
“It’s an amazing venue in a world famous setting and we are really looking forward to performing under the stars in Africa to see in 2015.”
Poole said it had been an “honour” to be asked to headline the carnival. CNN has lauded the festival as one of the top seven music festivals in Africa. “We are definitely bringing our A-Game. Lots of new remixes and material to play as well as the favourites.”
