Kobra Kai is a 100% live six piece dance fusion.
Incredible energy and showmanship are the true trademarks of Kobra Kai, their ability to life a crowds energy levels to the roof and create a frenzy is second to none.
With roots stemming from sub genres such as drum ‘n’ Bass, Breaks and Hip Hop, similar acts include London Electricity, Roni Size, Dizzee Rascal, Shapeshifter, Salmonella dub and Pendulum. It is the interest in contemporary dj's and producers that motivates Kobra Kai to look beyond the standard band situation, to utilise current music technology and mould the energy of dj's and MC's with that of a live band.
All of Kobra Kai's music is produced and performed live. Utilising music technology, the group diversify instrumentation possibilities. Heavy waist shaking synths and driving sub sounds - common to drum n bass styles, to soaring trance like melodies and solid break and hip hop grooves are combined with acoustic / electronic hybrid instruments to cover a vast palette of soundscapes. Guaranteed to fire a frenzied dance floor.
The group combine various expertise with individual backgrounds in DJ-ing, MC-ing, electronic music production, advanced instrument technique and songwriting. Fronted by various vocal styles and colours through MC’s Slice, D-Tech and Spex and by uniting these skills and elements, Kobra Kai clench a strong, unique identity.
2006 and 2007 has seen Kobra Kai perform extensively throughout Sydney with resident gigs at Sydney's Home Nightclub as well as interstate. Support slots for international touring acts have included Roni Size and Dynamite MC, DJ Marky and Stamina MC, Ed Rush & Optical, LTJ Bukem and MC Conrad and Concord Dawn.
From their birth in 2005, to showcasing at the Australian Dance Music Awards with Sneaky Sound System and Midnight Juggernauts, Kobra Kai were finalists in the ‘Nokia Be Heard’ competition, gaining national exposure and solid PR. Their featured track ‘Watch Your Step feat. MC Spex’ received the highest number of downloads from the Nokia site and their music video for Watch Your Step was aired on MTV.
In 2007, Kobra Kai won Triple J Unearthed (NSW) and were chosen to play Fuzzy Parklife, gracing the stage with Shapeshifter, Muscles and Stick Figures to name a few. Since then they have gone on to perform at the Sydney Big Day Out with a cache of new material awaiting release early in 2008.
