Launching Summer 2023

Press Release

Boolaboom are a super-sized brass and percussion big-band playing acoustic house, jazzy techno and drum & bass belters. A budding collaboration between some of Cork's top jazz musicians and drummers from the Cork City Samba Band, the group are launching officially in Summer 2023 and are currently showcasing their growing set.

Boolaboom's original tracks feature catchy brass licks and scintillating brass solos alongside irresistible percussion build-ups and thumping air-punching beat-drops, while covers such as their acoustic rework of Kerri Chandler's deep house classic 'Atmosphere' and 90's dance classic 'Insomnia' by Faithless are sure to thrill jazz and EDM fans alike.

The band's influences include current acoustic-techno darlings Meute, the French touch wizardry of St. Germain and the ground-breaking Mathew Herbert Big Band - along with a long list of contemporary and legendary EDM producers like Disclosure, Retromigration and Groove Armada..
