Aussie DJ Duo from Queensland, Bonka have released a new single today titled Focus, featuring vocalist and songwriter Bianca.
Focus comes off the back of their chart topping single Be Alive with international singer Luciana, which was no stranger to Australian air waves. Once again, Focus is nothing short of what we have come to expect from them.

More To Come….
Do you plan on attending one of these shows? Let us know by commenting below.
Bonka once again stopped by Rave It Up HQ to chat to us about the upcoming tour and their new track:
What can your fans expect from your shows coming up?
Well we always try to innovate and come up with new and exciting ways to entertain every crowd! They can expect a lot of new music from us (which we are super excited to show everyone) and where possible, we will be adding extra production to make our shows just that little bit bigger than your average!
Do you have any support acts planned that you can share with us?
At the moment, we actually do have a few support acts lined up for some of our shows on our upcoming tour. Obviously when she has time, we will have Bianca to perform our new single live and we have a few other acts we cannot share at the moment for a few of our PROJECT BONKA imprint shows.
Are you going to be touring internationally again soon as well?
We are planning on heading back to Asia by the end of the year, potentially a few times, but that will be after we finish our massive Australian tour for this new single!
For your latest single Focus, how was it working with Bianca? How did the collab come about? Had you met her previously?
Well Bianca is a truly talented artist and working with her is an absolute dream. She is so versatile in, not only her writing, but her singing as well! So, working with her was not only a pleasure but a privilege for us! The collab actually came about when we were in the process of finishing the song and just brainstorming ideas in terms of vocals or vocalists and once we really thought about it, we knew she was the perfect fit for the record and she absolutely nailed it! Before we started working together, we actually hadn’t met but knew of each other through different people in the industry, in particular one of her managers who is a close friend of ours, so making contact was relatively easy thankfully.
What is your plan after the tour? More singles? An album?
After this tour, the plan is lots of music and just making the right moves for us that will hopefully have us moving in the right direction for the remainder of 2019 and beyond!
