Chart-toppers Sigma takeover Queenstown’s Memorial Centre on Thursday night.
The UK drum and bass act has enjoyed a mainstream breakthrough in 2014 with single Nobody to Love, which hit the number one spot around the world.
The duo – Cameron Edwards and Joe ‘Wooz’ Lenzie – here answer some quick-fire questions for Mountain Scene.
Check out this week’s Mountain Scene for more on the boys.
What’s been the highlight for you since the success of Nobody to Love?
2014 has been an amazing year for us. Highlights are receiving a gold plaque in the UK and a platinum one in Australia. Amazing!
What can peeps expect from your Queenstown set?
Lots of new music, exclusives and a few hands in the air moments.
Is Nobody to Love representative of your music?
Yes. We haven’t really adapted our style. If you listen back to some of our older tracks, All Blue, Night and Day, Lassitude etc, you can hear the similarity.
How’s the Aus/NZ tour gone so far?
It’s been lots of fun. The highlight so far was our sold out show in Perth. It was pretty nuts!
You’ve done a fair bit of touring – which nationality go the hardest and which don’t?
There are soo many cool places to play. Some of our favourite territories are the UK, Australia & NZ, Belgium & Austria to name a few.
What’s your message to those coming to the Queenstown gig?
Don’t eat yellow snow.
Any plans while you’re in town?
Probably lots of sleeping, good food and fun!
What should we all be listening to?
Our new single Changing. It’s featuring Paloma Faith and been really pleased to see how well it’s gone down in the clubs here.
High hopes for Changing? How was it working with Paloma?
Paloma is really fun to work with. She has a very relaxed attitude, and is very easy to get along with. Absolute legend. Fingers crossed the song keeps doing well too!
Tell us a little about your process of creating a track – how do you work as duo?
We work on ideas individually a lot of the time, as live in different parts if the country and are touring so much, but always come together in the one studio to finish things off.
And what’s next on the horizon – album soon?
We would love to release our album at some point soon. No definitive release date as of yet though…
