After a couple of successful canters round the racecourse, Tight Horse Touring have decided to kick things up to a hefty gallop and will be dropping the one like Kamandi inside Dux Live for one night only.


Kamandi is one of the leading lights of New Zealand’s contemporary electronic music scene. Hailing from Christchurch, Kamandi first came to national and international attention in 2011, when he began disseminating his original bedroom productions online via soundcloud and bandcamp. He followed that up with performances around the country, where his sound caught the ears of Madcap Touring, Hit+Run Crew, Red Bull Sound Select, and underground radio stations worldwide.

A beat-maker, producer and live performer, Kamandi’s forward leaning soundworld draws measured influence from both the LA beats scene and the deeper, meditative side of the UK bass music continuum. Having first completed a Bachelor of Musical Arts while at Jazz school, he brings a studied understanding of stage performance to his music and its live presentation.

As testament to his talents, Kamandi’s output has seen him accumulate millions of plays on Soundcloud, perform alongside many of the worlds leading producers, as well a making numerous headline performances and festival appearances.

Online, Kamandi has been well supported by key music blogs with Earmilk, Hypetrak, Hilldilly and Complex being amongst the bunch. Following his association with Red Bull Sound Select, ‘Crown Violet’, Kamandi’s collaboration with rising US rapper Azizi Gibson was released via Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder record label, subsequently earning him a working connection with Waka Flocka’s 36Brickhouse label. Earlier in his career Kamandi unveiled a collaborative EP titled AA$B with fellow Christchurch beat-maker PXLX, and is rumored to have a new release looming.

Committed to music as a lifelong pursuit, Kamandi is in love with the medium’s ability to intimately describe feelings and thoughts better than words can.
