Rhombus Nices It Up
Wellington-based musical collective Rhombus headline at Mullumbimby’s Mullum Music Festival in late November, having this month released their third full-length self-titled album. Initiated in 2001, Rhombus presents a seamless blend of hip-hop, soul, funk, dub and bass roots-reggae, spliced together with socially conscious lyrics. Thomas Voyce, Koa Williams and Simon Rycroft form the foundation of the group. For their upcoming Australian performances Rhombus are bringing a seven-strong line-up and their own sound engineer. “With electronic music there are sort of limitations to what you can do on stage and the balance is unique especially with our particular sound. We are bringing our own engineer just to make sure that our sound is represented,” Voyce said. New Zealand singers Mihirangi and Ladi6 will also play at the Festival.
