How electronic duo SACHI prep for their captivating live show

by Noted / 18 January, 2018

Before electronic duo SACHI set off to play at summer festivals, we took a peek into what goes in to prepping for a live show.

It’s been a jam-packed summer for Auckland electronic duo SACHI, aka 19-year-old Will Thomas and Nick Chrisp, 20. Alongside working on tracks for their new EP, which is set to be released this year, they’ve also been pillars in the summer festival circuit, playing at Mount Maunganui’s Bay Dreams and Gisborne’s Rhythm and Vines. Their sweet road trip mixtape included tracks by Frank Ocean and Fleetwood Mac with a dose of the Eagles and Led Zeppelin.

Since the release of their EP Lunch with Bianca back in 2016, the pair have been making waves internationally, partly thanks to mega-producer Diplo playing their song ‘No More’ on his radio show. Now, their focus is on keeping their sounds fresh: a goal that inspired a partnership with the HP Reinventors campaign.

Noted caught up with the pair at their pre-festival rehearsal day, as they set up their new HP Spectre laptops. The laptops are fundamental to the new sound of their live shows, and provide a one-stop-shop to get beats out to their ever-growing audience. “With the Spectres we’ve been able to reinvent the show this year because people expect that if we’re going to do three years [of Rhythm and Vines] in a row, we’re going to bring a new kind of vibe to it,” says Thomas.
