New Zealand DJ collective Flamingo Pier return to Soundway Records with their Indigo EP.
Their previous release, the eponymous Flamingo Pier EP in February 2019, was the beginning of their relationship with Soundway - garnering support from industry peers including Gilles Peterson, Tim Sweeney (Beats In Space), The Black Madonna, Gideon Coe, The Wire magazine, JD Twitch and more.
Drawing inspiration again from cosmic disco, Afro-house and and Italo - Luke, Brad and Dominic hone their craft further on the Indigo EP with tight percussion, balanced arrangements and hard-hitting grooves.
The EP was recorded in Auckland and London over the course of 2019, with additional contributions from local New Zealand collaborators: percussionist Isaac Chadderton and brass player Finn Scholes.
The full EP is available on 12” vinyl and digital (with bonus radio edit) - and was released on 7 February 2020, to coincide with the hugely popular Flamingo Pier festival on Waiheke Island. The festival line up included Gilles Peterson, Sadar Bahar, Kamma & Masalo and Soundway Records label founder Miles Cleret.
