NEW YORK CITY -
"Goldfish are all about the collision of Analogue and Digital, the excitement of live instruments vs machines...a lot of electronic music is very bright and sterile but we like to rub a bit of dirt back in. We want to make Dance Music come alive again."

In a scene saturated with premixes, and mysterious button pressing, Goldfish are a breath of fresh air - two multi-instrumentalists who are re-inventing the concept of a DJ and taking live performance excitement to a whole new level. Their genre-defying live mix of sax, double bass, keyboards and pounding house beats has touched a nerve with audiences across the world, from impromtu jams in a tiny beach club in their home town of Cape Town to selling out Amsterdam's Heineken Music Hall and curating their own sold out festival in Holland. The boys haven't stopped there, cracking a top 10 on the US iTunes Dance chart, mixing the covermount CD for DJ Mag, a 5 year residency at Pacha Ibiza, and DJ's like Fedde le Grand knocking at their door to remix their tracks - It's almost hard to believe that not very long ago they were just Dom and Dave, two music students who led a relatively chilled life surfing and playing music in their home town Cape Town.

All that really did change when they decided to record an album. Being penniless students they simply locked themselves in a bedroom...with a double bass, a saxophone and a couple of synths, recording their debut Caught In The Loop on their own. A charming dance/chill out record that received massive support from the electronic music scene. Pete Tong even called it his Ibiza Poolside Album of the Summer.

The two guys quickly found themselves maintaining gruelling international tour schedule that saw them play sold-out shows from Amsterdam to Miami, from the Sydney Opera House to Sao Paulo, releasing the album Perceptions of Pacha, garnering a record-breaking 10 SAMA nominations, numerous number ones on radio at home, as well as performances at Glastonbury, Sensation White, Ultra Festival Miami, XO live, 46664 and Get Loaded in the Park amongst others.

Now with the launch of their seminal album Three Second Memory, Goldfish have once again crafted a brilliant musical work that perfects the bond between digital and analog - a back to mine sensibility meets live energy electronic music that you can listen to, dance to, or just chill out to.

With props coming from everyone from Fedde Le Grand, Dr Dre, Sebastian Ingrosso, Pete Tong, Sander Kleinenberg, and Faithless, Goldfish are ready to swim with the big fish. Watch this space, the Re-invention of the DJ has arrived.

Jewellery With A Conscience: Kind Karma

Jewellery With A Conscience: Kind Karma Check Out The Collection Kind Karma blends timeless jewellery with a social conscience. Founded in Toronto in 2017, the company makes classic jewellery pieces using a unique business model - the artisans who produce the handmade pieces are at-risk and homeless youth.  "I always wanted to be an entrepreneur," explains founder Laurinda Lee-Retter. "I wanted to give back." She combined her passions in Kind Karma. Laurinda serves as designer for the jewellery line, with pieces that are classic and minimalist, and that can be worn with anything. "I made jewellery as a hobby when I was young," she says.  The jewellery is then crafted by hand by the young artisans from sterling silver or gold fill, a durable construction that uses multiple layers of real gold over jeweller's brass. The result is much more resilient than gold plate. All the pieces are hypoallergenic, won't tarnish, and are designed to last for years

Travel By The Glass: Seven Cocktails From Around The World

Travel By The Glass: Seven Cocktails From Around The World W e may not be able to travel, listen to live music or eat in restaurants, but we can always drink. Here's a look at some famous cocktails, and the stories surrounding their origins from all over the world. The Bloody Caesar (Calgary, Alberta Canada) The story goes that back in 1969, the Calgary Inn asked bartender Walter Chell to create a new cocktail to celebrate the opening of a new restaurant inside the hotel. Taking his inspiration from the restaurant's Italian cuisine, it took him fully three months to ocme up with the Caesar - as inspired by spaghetti alla vongole, which is essentially pasta with clam sauce.  Chell crushed clams for their juices, mixing it with tomato juice and spices. The classic version includes clam nectar - nowadays more often substituted by Clamato juice - Worcestershire sauce and celery salt. In an interview, Chell said he also added a dash of oregano.
