GOLDFISH TEAM UP WITH FELLOW MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST XAVIER RUDD FOR FRESH TAKE ON 2021’s ‘WE DESERVE TO DREAM’
GoldFish are known all over the world for their upbeat, live instrumentation-infused music, and their latest offering on Armada Music – made in tandem with Australian artist Xavier Rudd – is of the same irresistibly uplifting disposition. After connecting with the fellow multi-instrumentalist over a mutual love for music and surfing, the South African duo built on Xavier’s 2021 single ‘We Deserve To Dream’ and turned it into a buoyant, hope-laden track designed to light up the world.
“We’ve been huge fans of Xavier for a long time,” GoldFish say. “When he played ‘We Deserve To Dream’ to us back in the summer, the creative juices started flowing straight away. It wasn’t long before we’d put our spin on the track, keeping Xavier’s amazing vocal at the front. It was special to work with a talented instrumentalist who could understand our vision for the arrangement. It’s a bonus that Xavier also surfs – we imagine this one playing whilst we’re all out on the waves!”
Since locking themselves in their bedroom studio and emerging with debut album ‘Caught In The Loop’ in 2006, GoldFish have gone from one of dance music’s best-kept secrets to luminaries, both as producers and performers. Their trailblazing live show, which combines DJing and a live instrumental performance, has earned the attention of a swelling house and electronic music fan base on a global scale.
About to embark on a full-scale tour through Brazil, the South African duo have become one of the most enduring and influential groups in live electronic music with a consistent string of chart-topping hits and countless festival appearances from Coachella to Glastonbury to Lollapalooza in South America.
