Bio

There's always something fresh in the waters of Australian dance music and eyes from all over the globe are firmly focused here, looking for exciting young talent. Right on cue for 2019 Choomba comes out of the gate with a debut EP that ROCKETS to #4 on the overall Beatport Chart and #2 on the hyper competitive Tech-House Chart, being piped out by none other than the legendary Patrick Topping and coming in above the latest signing from Jamie Jone's Hot Creations label. An absolutely MASSIVE feat for two Aussie's who self released their debut EP.

"This absolutely went off in my set!" - (The Magician) was the first of many rave review supports from - Claude Von Stroke, Richie Hawtin, Claptone, Riva Starr, Erick Morillo and multiple others. All this came in the opening weekend since sending exclusively to DJ's and the support hasn't stopped flowing in since.

This all continued off the dance floor too -

"This EP is HARD" (Dave Ruby Howe - JJJ)
"OOOOF massive debut" (Sammy Porter - RinseFM)
"These guys show so much promise" - (Mixmag)
"Powerful" - (Thissongissick)
"Full Support" - (DJtimes)

With this much hype around the project, a debut tour across some of the countries best clubs and international interest already beginning to bubble up - the foundations for an exciting 12 months have undoubtedly been set.

Some real starchy synths going on here...but the low GI kind that stay in your head all day. Look out for Choomba being big future bread-getters in the Aus dance scene in the future
