Sunday 27 April digital, Monday 5 May in shops
Welcome The Potbelleez. It's a name you'll be unable to avoid very soon. Don't Hold Back, the band's debut single is a track with radio written all over it. Tong's already playing, and daytime radio beckons.
Today, The Potbelleez are one of Australia's most in-demand acts. "Don't Hold Back" was number 5 there and in the top 40 for 23 weeks. In 2007 alone, they played over 250 gigs, including Channel Ten's famous Sydney Harbour New Years Eve celebrations, (2.2 million viewers Australia wide). They also played in front of 35,0 people at the opening of the A League Soccer Grand Final at Sydney Football Stadium, together with a host of festival appearances including Global Gathering Ireland (alongside Sasha & Digweed), Godskitchen (UK), and closing Stereosonic after Armand Van Helden . Already this year they've played Good Vibrations alongside Kanye West and supported dance luminaries Frankie Knuckles, Groove Armada and Axwell. Upcoming gigs at the Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney legs of the Future Music Festival alongside The Chemical Brothers and Roger Sanchez will also ensure the band will end the massive Australian summer festival season with a bang.
.Now they are coming to the UK.
The Potbelleez are a musical tour de force, consisting of DJ-producers and founding members Dave Goode and Jonny Sonic, sassy singer Blue and Ilan 'Ikid' Kidron, the voice behind 'Don't Hold Back'. Dave and Jonny, who are both Irish lads, landed in Sydney Australia in 2002, looking for a new start in the Antipodes. The electric Blue joined the pair in 2005, having previously dropped rhymes for legendary UK act Hexstatic while living in London. Meanwhile, Kidron made his entrance in 2006 as the band took about a legendary 2 year Saturday night residency in former strip club Moulin Rouge right in the heart of Sydney's red light district Kings Cross.
Combining Dave & Jonny's punchy electro-laced beats, with guitar-licked summer sonics and Kidron's captivating vocals, "Don't Hold Back" is 7 minutes of stunning dance music perfection and the kind of special offering that demanded people sit up and take notice of this rising Australian talent. The track spent an incredible 17 weeks as no.1 in the ARIA dance charts and 22 weeks in the ARIA Top 40 national singles chart, peaking at #5, which took the single "platinum" selling over 70,0 units.
Now squarely on the dance world's radar Dave & Jonny have been signed up by legendary Ibiza super club Pacha to mix a new compilation, while Ministry of Sound has snapped up the dynamic duo to record a prestigious 'Sessions' mix later this year.
