MEDIA RELEASE: Monday 19 November 2012

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.

Gordon Campbell:
On The Northland By-Election

Supposedly, Winston Peters’ victory in Northland has exposed the simmering dissatisfaction with the government that exists out in the provinces. Yet it remains to be seen whether this defeat will have much significance – and not simply because if and when Labour resumes business as usual in the Northland seat at the next election, Peters’ hold on it could simply evaporate.

On Saturday, National’s electorate vote declined by 7,000 votes, as the 9,000 majority it won last September turned into a 4,000 vote deficit – mainly because Labour supporters followed the nod and wink given by Labour leader Andrew Little, and voted tactically for Peters. In the process, Labour’s vote went down from nearly 9,000 votes six months ago, to only 1,315 on Saturday. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On A Funeral In Asia, The Northland By-Election, And News Priorities

Supposedly, New Zealand’s destiny lies in Asia, and that was one of Foreign Minister Murray McCully’s rationales for his bungled reforms at MFAT. OK. So, if that’s the case why didn’t Prime Minister John Key attend the state funeral on Sunday of Singapore’s founding leader Lee Kuan Yew? More>>

On Pacific Spying

So New Zealand spied on its friends and allies in the Pacific – and has not only been passing on the results to the NSA, but has apparently passed on the details of the Pacific’s relations with Taiwan to our other best friends, the Chinese. On the side, the Key government has also been using the security services to gauge the chances of Trade Minister Tim Groser landing the top job at the WTO... More>>
