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 the 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 show has already seen them perform all over the world. In particular being noted as the "CMJ Highlight" by The Revivalist/Okayplayer after their performance at the New York festival in 2010 as part of their debut U.S. tour.
Their debut self titled album released internationally on BBE Records and Every Waking Hour in New Zealand has received love from many of the world's top Djs and selectors including; BBC Radio 1 DJs Benji B who selected the track Chaser as a top track of 2009 and Gilles Peterson who selected the track They Don't Want as a top track of 2009 and featured it as the opening track on his infamous Brownswood Compilation - Bubblers 5.
