Nu Fvnk is also part of the EA Wave collective. EA Wave have already had some critical acclaim in the region as both producers and DJ's, but recently they have come together as a hybrid live Electronic act, with midi & live instruments and vocals; one of very few live electronic acts in the region. With an average age of 22yrs, their live act was originally influenced by the likes of Bonobo and Four Tet, but as their live music is evolving, its become a fusion of multiple genres, less abstract and more song based, representing their unique and distinct styles as individuals but creating something whole and unique from this.
