Fishing – ‘Boyfriend’ (ft. Guerre) (mp3)
Jinja Safari - ‘Peter Pan’ (Fishing Remix) (mp3)
Alpine - ‘Heartlove’ (Fishing Backyard Bonding Remix) (mp3)
Although my coverage of these guys my have subsided of late, my love for their musics has not. Fishing are one of my favourite discoveries of 2k10 alongside Guerre – who, as luck would have it, is featured on the top track ‘Boyfriend,’ lending his reverbed falsetto to a classic Fishing beat. This Sydney-based duo make glitchy, summery, sample-based beats that bisect hip hop and chillwave. Given their production-heavy output, it’s natural that they’d be trying their hand at the odd remix. I think their Alpine ‘Heartlove’ remix is more successful than their Jinja Safari one, but it is and will probably continue to be worth listening to anything with the name “Fishing” attached to it.
FYI, if you’re into this sort of stuff then you should probably be reading Life Aquatic, a great new blog outta Sydney that covers a lot of similar music and whose love for Guerre rivals even mine.
