Shanalog joins me in the studio to talk about an exciting new series of events that will showcase some of NZs lesser know talents and give Auckland a chance to see what they’ve been missing out on. A P O L L O K I D S will run fortnightly during March and April and features musicians and producers from across the north island who ply their skills in the electronic/experimental realm of music. Tunes from Skymning, Caitlin Blake and Career Girl, plus a lot more.

Te latest craze to rock the Waitemata Harbour is bass heavy boat partys. This Sunday, Our Place Events have a treat in stall for all those seaworthy revellers who like a bit of sway in their step. This is purely a fun and fund raising event, with all of the coin going to make sure you have a good time and the ocean is better off (via Sustainable Coastlines & Project Jonah). Huge local line up bringing the ballast of bass for six hours of sound in the sun (outlook is good). Head along to Our Place Events for more info and tickets.
Holy shit there’s more. Grassmouth is opening the after party from 8pm at The Carpark so get along to shake off those sea legs with some breezy beats to commence the second chapter of the journey. Pun limit reached.
Check out the warm up mix:
