700 Website Boo Seeka

BOO Seeka’s synths and beats keeps the energy sizzling like a neon sign on the Miami strip. The Sydney hip-hop-psych-soul project begun an outlet for a couple of musical experiments, a testing ground for new sounds. And it’s growing, multiplying and producing delicious sounds. Their debut single, “Kingdom Leader” was premiered and featured as Song of the Week The track made blog and radio waves abroad with features on The Music Ninja and LaBelle Musique and received airplay on KCRW (California), and on XFM in the UK.

To date, Boo Seeka has accumulated over 7 million Spotify streams and dominated national airwaves with singles like ‘Oh My’, ‘Deception Bay’, ‘Fool’ and their 2015 debut single, ‘Kingdom Leader’, which peaked at #6 on the Australian iTunes Electronic chart. Boo also managed to reach #50 in Triple j’s 2015 Hottest 100 with ‘Deception Bay’ and snagged a J Award nomination for Unearthed Artist of the Year in 2015. 

A combination of pulsating synth sounds that bed down layered textures of electronic bass and percussive beats. Influenced by the layerings and experimental beats of Major Lazer, the cool swagger of J-Dilla and The Seed 2.0’s Cody Chestnutt’s soulful vocal delivery. BOO SEEKA snaps up melodies and bounces them off hip-hop/R&B driven grooves and beats that vibe. 

2015 saw Boo Seeka tour Australia nationally with Kim Churchill, Sticky Fingers and SAFIA. Supporting each band on their respective National Tours. Followed by 2 SOLD OUT Headline single tours of the east coast. They’ve supported the likes of DMA’s, Jarryd James, Kovacs in the EU and UK and have also showcased at The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City. 

In 2016, they sold out their own national headline Oz tour and went back to EU and the UK for their own run of shows and festivals. After that was done, they came back home to play on home soil, just in time for summer festivals, including Groovin’ The Moo, Splendour In the Grass, Southbound and Party in the Paddock. Boo Seeka, being the hardest touring bands in Oz at the moment, also managing to squeeze in a 3 month long tour with Cherub and Frenship in October - November of 2016. 

Boo Seeka continue to work on their first album - on and off the road. Working with producer and long time collaborator, Ian Pritchett (Bootleg Rascal & Lyall Moloney). Their most recent single, ‘Does This Last’, navigates through a bed of spacey synth and string layers. Building on their eclectic soul-tronic sounds. The single has been placed on high rotation on Triple J and have been featured on a few Spotify AU/NZ playlists (including 5 weeks on the Indie Mixtape playlist). It’s the first taste of their first album, due for release August 2017 (through Sureshaker & Warner Music Australia).
