Karate Boogaloo Karate Boogaloo

Making up the rhythm section of long-time Melbourne soul favourites The Cactus Channel, Karate Boogaloo are the zany quartet that exists to remind us of the beauty of colouring outside the lines; their unconventional, heavy hitting funk guided by a steadfast commitment to bending the rules.

Having spent their early-20s recording in mouldy home studios and sweaty attic recording spaces, Karate Boogaloo have reimagined Deep Funk sensibilities and sharpened their soul musings into an off-kilter sound that leans heavily on cinematic themes, breaks and library music – a sound that permeates the Boogers’ highly refined sense of inelegance and tongue-in-cheek humour.

2018’s KB’s Mixtape No. 1, a self-produced and released collection of interpretations of hip hop samples done in Karate Boogaloo’s immediately recognisable wonky style is fast becoming a cult classic amongst Melbourne’s diggers, selling out in local record stores through word of mouth alone.

KB consistently sit in their own lane – their combination of raw musicianship and sheer time on the clock playing together in the studio and on stage gives them a glowing presence rarely seen.
