Original Te Whanganui-a-Tara (Wellington) collective Rhombus return to the stage in Mt Maunganui after 8years with new material and some new faces, but with the tried-and-true formula audiences have come to love: a south pacific musical style with combinations of funk, soul, reggae and electronic dub Wobbly bass, frenetic drum lines, and echoed synth; Rhombus are still the masters of their distinctive and unique sound.
With Koa, Simon and Thomas at the controls, and special guests on the mic, Lisa Tomlins and TK Paradza, the Rhombus crew will be laying down their original sound, along with unreleased studio mixes of previous and forthcoming brand new tracks!
Established in 2001, Rhombus first made a splash on the scene in 2002 with their award-winning debut album 'BASS PLAYER featuring the iconic singles “Clav Dub” and “Onward (Step it Up)”.
They followed up with their critically acclaimed sophomore album Future Reference in 2005. 2006 saw the release of Onwards: Remixes and Archives and then their final studio album Rhombus in 2008.
