NZ Music Special on UK’s Radio One

NZ Music Special on UK’s Radio One

On Monday (UK time) the BBC's Radio One continued its stellar lineup of One World radio show specialist programmes. Following on from shows featuring Thievery Corporation and Tiefschwarz, Radio One broadcast a two hour New Zealand Music Special as this week’s instalment of the show.

Hosted by ex-pat Zane Lowe, the show aimed to share new musical discoveries from NZ with Radio One’s UK audience. The show was compiled following a research trip to Auckland and Wellington in March of this year.

Focusing on playing music rather than talking about songs or artists, the show featured a staggering number of NZ acts in the two hour running time. The list of artists featured included Ekadek, Ermehn, SJD, Breaks Co- Op, Dam Native, Tha Feelstyle, Shocking Pinks, Pitch Black, Phelps and Munro, Dimmer, P-Money, The Checks, The Datsuns, The Mint Chicks, Mark De Clive Lowe, Salmonella Dub, Concord Dawn, International Observer, Recloose, Atlantic Conveyer, Minuit, Joe Dukie And The Nextmen, Rhombus, Audio Sauce, The Black Seeds, Hollie Smith, Trinity Roots, Fly My Pretties, Rhian Sheehan, Tubbs and Fat Freddy’s Drop.
