Formed by producers Simon Rycroft, Imon Star and Thomas Voyce, Wellington act Rhombus billed itself as “Aotearoa's premier dub & bass electronic soul, funk, hip-hop band”. Their 2002 debut album Bass Player featured guest MCs and vocalists including Tiki Taane and Raashi Malik, and tracks produced while Voyce was based in Japan. They also won fans with 'Clav Dub', a music video which paid homage to classic movie Goodbye Pork Pie. Two more Rhombus albums have followed, plus a collection of remixes.
Wellington dub/roots act Rhombus won fans with this video for the brassy, bouncy, self referential first single from their debut album ‘Bass Player’. Director Chris Graham pays fulsome tribute to classic road movie Goodbye Pork Pie (complete with cameo from the film’s star, original 'Blondini' Kelly Johnson). There are also appearances from a number of Wellington musical heavyweights, including Fat Freddy’s Drop, Trinity Roots (with a snatch of ‘Little Things’) and MC Rizzla, also known as Tiki Taane (who features on the original track).
