One of New Zealand’s most sought after electronic acts, Eastern Bloc have supported the likes of Flosstradamus, Flume, Alison Wonderland, Danny Brown and Baauer. Their first big international milestone however came off the back of their Jersey club flip of Rocafella Records artist and Kanye West collaborator Vic Mensa’s ‘Down On My Luck’ which not only earned them an 8/10 review in UK’s coveted MIXMAG Magazine, but also praise online from Mensa himself which led to a meeting in Auckland when he was touring.
After induction into the Red Bull Sound Select platform the duo released their debut Flamingo EP, which caught the eye of Skrillex’s NEST HQ platform who premiered the release in November. Flamingo received viral status, reaching number one dance and number three overall album spots on the New Zealand iTunes charts and was the number one album streamed on apple music.
From their time in the Red Bull Studios in Auckland this year, Eastern Bloc have released two monstrous new singles packaged as Double A, both of which collaborate with a different Redbull Sound Select artist; ‘Astro Boy’ ft. Montell2099 and ‘Knine’ ft. Kamandi. Each track is an instant club classic that carries forward the same unique sound from last year’s Flamingo EP, marking a huge step up in Eastern Bloc's evolution into true global players of the bass music scene.
