Rare Shot Blue

Bio

After moving to Christchurch from Tokyo in 2001, Hideto Kobayashi caught the New Zealand dance music bug and started DJing and producing tunes under the name Rare Shot Blue. With a reputation for collaborating with interesting artists and exploring elements of electronica, both upbeat and down, Rare Shot Blue became a must-see live artist and a staple fixture at festivals including Southern Amp, PHAT and Canaan Downs Festival.

‘Where I Was Born’, the debut album from Rare Shot Blue, is the culmination of Hideto’s last 7 years of work producing. The album takes a journey through downbeat and trip hop beats, with soulful vocals (courtesy of LA Mitchell, Lucy Boanas and Sacha Van Beek) giving an Aotearoa-styled nod to the sounds of Massive Attack and Portishead.

With ‘Where I Was Born’ as a starting point, Rare Shot Blue is setting out to explore uncharted waters in Aotearoa Electronica.

Band Members:
Hideto Kobayashi (keyboards, vocals)
Kommi Tamati (vocals, raps, percussion, kazoo, whistle)
