Soulware
The dub music collective from New Zealand's deep south take a very unique approach to today's "bass music" offering a refreshing breath of life to a world of disposable beats. The Soulware live shows and upcoming album combine elements of dubstep, drum and bass, dub electonica, trip hop, blues and rock that will submerge the listener into a depth of sonic sound scape and rhythm that will move your body and soul.

Soulware's first release came in May 2010 with a breathtaking remix of Organikismness's " My Resting " featuring Ras Judah. This is where it all began, What first started as a side/solo project (by Organikismness) soon evolved into a collaborative motion involving people from Bluff (NZ) to Manchester (UK).

"Vertigo" and "Te Ao Marama" were the first 2 tracks recorded that really captured the essence of Soulware's now familiar 5 piece arrangement of

- Vocals and native instruments - Jono Leask
- Trumpet and percussion - Nick Garraway
- Clarinet, FX, percussion - Donelle Manihera
- Keys, acoustic bass, soundboy - Thomas Mcgrath
- DJ and production, MPD sampler, Kaos, flute, melodica, keys, - Harry Bretherton

Soon following was "Images," released in late 2010 on Optimus Grymes' legendary Aotearoa Dubstep Allstars compilation and received massive DJ support from the likes of Optimus Gryme, Organikismness, Mary Ann Hobbs (BBC) Truth, Dov, Scuba, Vishnu, Ylem and many others. Soulware have since played through out NZ and Australia and enjoyed an incredibly receptive summer festival circuit in NZ.

In little over a year since their inception, Soulware are very proud to present the LP: Return to The Source. As well as the familiar 5 piece arrangement Return to The Source features a host of others. This album is a timeless collection of the band's evolution, featuring some studio work as well as some live recordings.

The Soulware sound was quoted as "some of the most visionary work of our time," but you can be the judge of that for real music speaks a thousand words.

When this music hits you, you wont feel pain. You'll just want more.
