Latest Goodies

Jet Jaguar

Jet Jaguar arrives from the sampledelic world of funk, hip-hop and dub. Genres that have always been reflexive: borrowing riffs, drum patterns and vocals from the past in order to funk them up, to create, and move forward. His latest album 'Think About It Later' was released a few weeks ago, now you can sample some of his older 'classic' tunes right here. Downbeat electronic tunes with old school samples, odd radio samples and nano-blips from who knows where.

Where I'm At - Tomachi

Solo compositions by Tom Atkinson. Where I'm At is a Hiphop tune with locally source MC Grassroots on the Mic. Tom Atkinson on the drums, rhodes, Phat bass provided by Andy Rust, and stirring up some soup-like guitar riffs is Sam Lockley.

Ease Ya Mind - The WBC

A 5 track EP which was self-funded by the band and recorded by the band's drummer Clint Murphy shows the diversity of the band's original material. The first single to be lifted from the EP is the title track 'Ease Ya Mind'. It features on the NZ On Air Indie Hit Disc 21 and gained a NZ On Air video grant. The video is due to hit screens early-mid July.
