Wildfire Agency presents
Supported by Electrik Lemonade and MAYA
As the corner stone of Australia’s ‘east meets west’ electronic scene, Tijuana Cartel have a knack for blending layers of rich, intricate atmospheric soundscapes with laid back rhythms and luscious vocals to form an electronic beats tapestry that will cut through to your very soul.
Simply, there isn’t another band doing what they do. Having spent the last decade mixing in influences that haven’t been fused in the past, their penchant is for Middle Eastern scales, beats that get a floor moving and a general Psychedelic approach in song structure and ethos. Not married to one genre or another, they happily change direction in search of new flavors and inspiration, whenever the moment takes them there.
Bound together by their mutual love of instrumental, Trippy and mind-expanding music, Paul George and Carey O’Sullivan are a truly formidable force. With shared early memories of hearing tubular bells and falling for the musical escapism they created, they have emerged as one of the country’s most exciting acts and it would appear that their legion of fans whole heartedly approve.
Electrik Lemonade is a merry band of funklords that play a repertoire of funk, hip hop, blues, soul and dance music that could only be fathered by the likes of Captain Planet. Each member brings their own slice of Earth, Fire, Wind, Water and Lovin’ in the live show, culminating in a whirlwind of explosive energy that comes with a tidal warning as the crowd uncontrollably burst into a wave of dance and good vibes.
Since their debut in December 2010, Electrik Lemonade's live performances have rapidly grown as they play to crowds at premiere live music venues & festivals up and down the East Coast. They've been lucky enough to be aired live to National Television featuring on Channel 7's Weekend Sunrise, Channels 10's The 7pm Project, feature artist on Toasted TV & even reaching airplay in Europe, Asia, North America & regularly throughout Australia.
Drawing on a unique blend of influences while combining their comedic, fun attitude toward life they present a energetic, visual music show - after which, the crowd is never left with anything but a funky uplifted feeling.
A vivid fusion of RnB, soul and electronic pop, MAYA’s electric sound mirrors her Australian, African American, and Hungarian roots. She offers up a performance of originals and covers that reach your head, heart, and hips all at once. Merging dark vocal layers, organic instrumentation and neoteric beats, MAYA blends colour and shade, taking audiences on an enthralling sonic journey.
