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.

Anzac Issue Out Now: Werewolf 47

Hi and welcome to the 47th edition of Werewolf, published on the eve of Anzac Day. Its become a cliché to describe Gallipolli as the crucible of this country’s identity, yet hold on... Isn’t our national identity supposed to be bi-cultural... and wouldn’t that suggest that the New Zealand Wars of the 19th century is a more important crucible of national identity than those fought on foreign soil?

Yet as Alison McCulloch eloquently reveals in this month’s cover story, New Zealand devotes a mere fraction of its attention span and funding resources to commemorating the New Zealand Wars compared to what it devotes to the two world wars, Vietnam and Afghanistan... More>>
