Electric Wire Hustle

About the Artist

Developing their own sound and twist on modern hip hop, psychedelic and soul Electric Wire Hustle’s unique sound challenges genre boundaries and preconceptions.

The music of New Zealand's EWH reaches forward while referencing key points of music’s past. Thick drums and percussion layered with synth lines, hints of Fender Rhodes and nylon stringed guitars have your neck snapping while your ear cranes to the evocative vocals of Mara TK.

Since forming in 2007 EWH have experienced an outstanding response to their music. Their strong live shows have seen them support the likes of UK soul singer Alice Russell, Japan’s DJ Krush and Grooveman Spot, U.S. psychedlic soul outfit SA-RA Creative Partners, Peanutbutter Wolf, Dam Funk, Talib Kweli and Jean Grae.

EWH have also had the pleasure of collaborating with some of their favourite artists including U.S. based Georgia Anne Muldrow (Epistrophik Peach/SomeOthaShip/ Ubiquity Records), Dudley Perkins aka Decalime (Epistrophik Peach/SomeOthaShip/ Stones Throw), Atlanta based Stacy Epps, Mara’s dad; NZ blues legend – Billy TK and UK future Soul exponent Steve Spacek.

The debut self titled album was released in New Zealand through EWH's own record label 'Every Waking Hour' late 2009 and was picked up by BBE Records (UK) for international release from July 2010. Wonderful Noise Records (JPN) will be releasing the album in Japan as well as a second 12” vinyl EP and 7” vinyl single in June 2010.
