“we are certainly honored to be hosting and presenting this soon to be super power of a band. the melbourne quartet is an internationally acclaimed “future soul” band. in just two years, highly-respected artists, audiophiles and everyday people have been waxing poetic about HIATUS KAIYOTE. the music is diverse and it expands into a sound that can’t fit within the boundaries of a single genre. each track is like a key ingredient in the listening experience that adds to a fusion of jazz, hip-hop, electronic, opera, rock and soul. subtle traces of the group’s major influences, ranging from STEVIE WONDER and J DILLA to FLYING LOTUS are imbedded in the project.
