How electronic duo SACHI prep for their captivating live showby Noted
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.
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.
