Cali Satellites founders Australia’s Dinesh Wicks and Adam Gock were busy being a pop and house music producer, and a heavy rock band guitarist before accidentally becoming two of the world’s most sought after screen composers, writing the scores of some of the world’s most iconic TV shows. With 6 ASCAP awards and 12 APRA Awards between them they have been the most performed screen composers in the bottom half of the world for almost a decade.
Their studios in Los Angeles would become a sort of unofficial embassy for travelling musicians who would often ask Wicks and Gock whether they’d like to collaborate musically...for many years they would simply answer.....No In 2017 they stopped saying No. And the Cali Satellites was born. With a merry bunch of collaborators from break out new talent to celebrated artists, the songs from their upcoming album are beautiful slabs of guitar laced electro pop with echoes of 80s Synthwave and some west coast indie cool thrown in for good measure.
