CLASS OF 2012: George FM Yearbook Back for a Third Year

The George FM Yearbook album is back for the third year, taking the biggest and best tracks from the class of 2012 off the airwaves and into one knockout collection, available from 30 November.

Mixed by DJ Dan Aux, host of The George Selectah, the George FM Yearbook 2012 bounces between the best local and international tunes.

“I approached this mix the same way I would my daily radio show, that is to give the listeners an upbeat, entertaining andgenre bending mix of all their favourite dance tracks ready to rock your car-home-stereo-ipod-microwave-oven.

I’m really proud of all of the selections on this album and especially the VIP treats that come with it!” says Dan.

The album is saturated with some of the year’s biggest club tunes from leading international artists including Martin Solveig, Major Lazer, DeadMau5, as well as Dr Don Don’s ‘Everybody’ receiving the remix treatment from Dan Aux and P-Money.

2012 has been a huge year for local acts making a solid impact on the airwaves with nearly half of the top voted tracks coming from right here in NZ.

Local talent is proficiently represented by Tui award winners Concord Dawn with ‘These Prison Walls’, and an a capella version of David Dallas’ ‘Ever Get the Feeling’.

In true summer fashion, Kiwi favourites Shapeshifter also feature in the track list with their hit ‘Monarch’, as well as the quirky and adorable Ruby Frost with ‘Water to Ice’.

The George FM Yearbook 2012 is available from Friday 30th November online and from all good record stores. Head to www.georgefm.co.nz for more information.

Scoop Business: Auckland Convention Centre Cost Jumps By A Fifth

SkyCity Entertainment Group, the casino and hotel operator, is in talks with the government on how to fund the increased cost of as much as $130 million to build an international convention centre in downtown Auckland, with further gambling concessions ruled out.

The Auckland-based company has increased its estimate to build the centre to between $470 million and $530 million as the construction boom across the country drives up building costs and design changes add to the bill, it said in a statement. The casino operator had previously estimated the centre would cost $402 million, which it had agreed to cover in return for extensions to its Auckland gaming licence.

The company today lodged its application for a resource consent. More>>
