Riki Gooch Shares New Album 'DJ OBOE'

Riki Gooch Shares New Album 'DJ OBOE'

Monday 2nd October, 2017 8:30AM

Wellington producer and former Trinity Roots member Riki Gooch wears many hats - he's currently playing drums in Orchestra Of Spheres and has produced a clutch of solo dance releases under his Cave Circles moniker. Gooch's new project DJ OBOE finds him in wonky techno mode, with catchy club rhythms skittering across an intricate selection of summery samples. The weekend's album release party at Wellington's Pyramid Club saw Gooch wearing a rubber possum mask and moving the dance floor using his trusty SP404 sampler.

UTR caught up with Riki Gooch who shared his thoughts on the album's origin: "DJ OBOE is a musical reaction to kuduro, which is a form of Angolan dance music from the barrios of Lisbon. Jeff Henderson properly introduced me to it and since then I have fell in love with the jerking rhythmic concepts and intricate layering of sound, which form something unique to me and something I'm not quite sure I have achieved."

Listen to 'DJ OBOE' on Bandcamp, the album is also available on limited edition cassette.
