Get ready to party as trail-blazers Salmonella Dub celebrate their 25th anniversary with an iconic audio-visual, bass heavy, back catalogue mash-up.
Salmonella Dub has toured the world, performed over 200 festival shows and paved the way for the likes of Fat Freddy's Drop and Shapeshifter.
Dance to jungle grooves and thumping bass anthems, complete with special guests, New Zealand's King of the Dubs Tiki Taane and Maori songstress Whirimako Black.
The night will finish with Mike Cooper performing a specially composed soundtrack for the legendary film, White Shadows in the South Seas. It's a Pacific sunset-like dream spanning the horizon in pulsing waves of richly coloured rhythms, tropical sound fields and Pacific-inspired slide guitar.
Mike Cooper’s career spans an impressive range of territory. In recent years his work with music of oceania and exoticism has produced a string of beautiful and evocative recordings. With White Shadows In The South Seas, Cooper has prepared a specially composed soundtrack for the legendary film. I’s a pacific sunset-like dream spanning the horizon in pulsing waves of richly coloured rhythms, tropical sound fields and pacific-inspired slide guitar.
Salmonella Dub have always pushed musical boundaries, taking a reggae foundation and fusing it with multiple genres to create a sound entirely their own. Salmonella Dub's impressive and very important place in New Zealand music history is undeniable with seven studio albums, three remix albums, a live album with the NZSO, four EP's and over 161 sons collectively achieving 10 platinum across a catalogue that has sold over 600,000 worldwide, 270 plus festival appearances, five Tui awards and twleve Bnets awards all providing testament to this band's iconic status. From their very first live appearance in 1993, to the forthcoming 25th anniversary featuring Tiki Taane, passion, creativity, energy, driving bass beats and pure joy are the signature hallmarks of one of New Zealand's most successful bands. Don't miss out on what promises to be a truly phenomenal live eight-piece band executed dance floor experience.
