TMet Recordings fly high on Air New Zealand

TMet Recordings fly high on Air New Zealand

The following New Zealand chillout releases on Kiwi download label TMet Recordings, will be playing on the Pure Pleasure Inflight music channel on Air New Zealand flights during June 2005.

’I Hear You’re Leaving’ is by Wellingtonian Andy Tan who now has 5 releases on TMet Recordings under his producer name ‘Echo’. The track is blissed out trip hop, with an immaculate acoustic guitar solo and haunting piano that reflect the bittersweet nature of change.
These Days are Made for Crying is also from the talented Echo, and about the joys of sadness and the misery of good fortune. The title is kind of ironic as the music's on the uplifting side of the spectrum.

As Echo says; “it's about being able to wear your heart on your sleeve and being proud of it, as humans are emotional creatures, which keeps us unique and animated.”

Also on Pure Pleasure this month is Capture by Auckland based Joe Nelson, who releases under the title Liquid Underground. This track is the debut release from Liquid Underground and a beautiful laid back piece of Drum & Bass.

1 minute previews of these tracks and more can be heard at:

TMet Recordings would like to thank Air New Zealand for helping home-grown Kiwi music fly round the world!
