Tijuana Cartel

Supported by Gaia
Australia / Northern Territory

Australia’s premier ‘east meets west’ electronic beat makers Tijuana Cartel have a knack for blending layers of rich, intricate soundscapes with pulsating rhythms and luscious vocals to form an electronic beats tapestry that will cut through to your very soul. Bound together by their mutual love of instrumental, trippy and mind-expanding music, Paul George and Carey O’Sullivan are a truly formidable force.  

On stage is where Tijuana Cartel’s collective musical spirit is really given the chance to run wild. Joined by Yoav Mashiach on percussion and occasionally Joshua Sinclair on trumpet, they extensively tour Australia regularly stopping off at all of the major cities, as well as small towns and the most loved festivals including Peats Ridge, Rainbow Serpent, Wave Rock, Splendour In The Grass, Byron Bay Blues and Roots, Falls, Shine On, Good Vibrations, Surry Hills Festival and Lane Way amongst others. They also tour across Europe and USA when the stars align.

Tijuana Cartel are one impressive musical outfit. Combining delicate mariachi guitar with electronic details – think José González with the electro beats of The Chemical Brothers – they offer a fresh, innovative genre fusion. Wowing audiences all over the world, they’re back with the new album Psychedelicatessen. If you’ve heard the band before, you’ll know what you’re getting yourself in for. If you’re only just discovering Tijuana Cartel, you’re definitely in for a good time.

Support for this gig comes from Northern Territory soul indie rock band Gaia, a shamelessly groovy and infinitely energetic four piece whose music is adventurous, bold and catchy.
