There's always something fresh in the waters of Australian dance music and eyes from all over the globe look here for exciting young talent and fresh trends. Right on cue for 2019 Choomba came out of the gate with a debut EP that hit #4 on the overall Beatport Release Chart, #2 on the hyper competitive Tech-House Chart, came in at #36 on Australia’s overall Shazam Chart and saw them up for the Triple J Unearthed feature artist spotlight. A solid showing for a self released debut EP. The follow up single Wantchu took that momentum even further being spot added to Triple J and pushing the act into a whirlwind festival run.
Off the back of these releases - Choomba was booked for Spilt Milk & Grass Is Greener Festivals….. on the 2nd and 3rd stages, early in the day and every time the stages flooded to capacity within seconds and the energy was electric. This early win really stamped Choomba as a name people need to know, an act surrounded by so much promise and excitement in just their first 10 months of existing.
“It’s been a crazy whirlwind since we put out the EP and it went off and got all this love we never anticipated. All of a sudden we’re playing these crazy shows around Australia, getting hit up by labels and festival owners and then random stuff like Diplo calling us up to go work at his house in LA. Right now we’re most excited to be back writing records and planning out our touring for 2020”
