Electric Wire Hustle

Damn, got to add these cats to the kick back listening pleasure list

'Perception' Electric Wire Hustle from Electric Wire Hustle on Vimeo.

Electric Wire Hustle is a three piece band from New Zealand that has taken some of the best parts of hip-hop, soul, funk, and a little psychedelic and put together some sonically unique tracks that sound surprisingly refreshing considering that their influences seem to come from renown sources of the past, from A Tribe Called Quest and Al Green to The Doors. The video for the track “Perception” is a fairly straightforward clip, but is a great illustration of how this group takes a little bit from a lot of places and really makes it into something new and distinct, taking some simple hip hop style drum programming, mixing it with soulful vocals, then tweaking it all just enough to give it a slightly futuristic sound.
