Goldfish-Hold Tight

While the Bat Signal might let the Caped Crusader know that something's afoot, there's nothing like knowing that people are living well, knocking back a couple of beers, chilling with good folk around them, loving life. And chances are if they're playing this newest Jam and a Half, they're having a helluva time.

Straight out of the host of the 2010 World Cup (we're going!), Goldfish brings a unique sound, one that is immediately recognizable, but at the same time is a little edgier, has a little extra funk, a little more Africa. On a beat with the funkiest sax since the days of Bill "Slick Willy" Clinton in office, the duo from Cape Town give "Hold Tight" an infectious energy which makes you realize that you don't want the song to stop, ever.

The two members of Goldfish, David Poole and Dominic Peters, met in school and are quietly blowing up. Recently opening up for the likes of Paul Van Dyk and Basement Jaxxx, among others, the two are creating a sound that mixes the rave culture of Europe and infuses it with jazz, live instruments, and African undertones. Not content to simply stick to their macs, their lives shows have them playing the sax, drums, flutes, all sorts of crazyness, bringing a layer of inventiveness to an already flourishing music scene. "Hold Tight" is a jam and a half for all the right reasons, and it doesn't matter if you're looking for a song to let some energy off before an exam, or get a party going, this is it. Goldfish are aiming to up the funk a little, and from what I hear, I wouldn't bet against them. I added the original song and a live version with some instruments. Check out YouTube for some other sick shows.
