Sounday With Shapeshifter, Ladi6, Tiki...


With Shapeshifter, Ladi6, Tiki, Connan and the Mockasins,
Pig Out, The Mixtape Connection with Ed Muzik

MC Sticky Fingaz and the $mix Crew
Sunday 20 January 2008
North Hagley Park, Christchurch

Reclaiming the central city for an afternoon of live music excellence, a collection of this country’s top live performers are set to deliver their best, freshest and most loved tunes in the serene surrounds of North Hagley Park. This is an afternoon that promises to make Sounday your new favourite day of the year.


Shapeshifter are unquestionably awesome. Just ask someone who was part of the capacity crowd at the Town Hall, in September 2006 when they appeared with the Christchurch Symphony, or talk to any one of the 12,000 people who let it all go at Cheap as Chips 2007. Shapeshifter are returning to their home town to deliver their signature live blend of Drum & Bass, Electro, Jazz and Soul on the back of a hugely successful international tour. Sounday will be the ultimate homecoming. Chur chur for Shapeshifter at home in Hagley Park.

Also with her roots in Christchurch, Ladi6 (Karoline Tamati) is the soulful voice behind the hit ‘When I return’ (Shapeshifter). One of New Zealand’s premiere female vocalists, Ladi6 has worked on some of the most memorable kiwi tracks of late, with our country’s top music-makers including Fat Freddys Drop, Scribe, 50hz and of course, Shapeshifter. Keep your ears peeled for Ladi6’s debut album, out in January.

Hot on the heels of his debut album release, this former soundman and voice of the multi-award winning group Salmonella Dub is stepping up and mesmerizing audiences with his impressive solo act. Catch this New Zealand music leader live and outdoors, in his hometown of Christchurch.

Connan and the Mockasins
Kooky indie psychedelic popsters Connan and the Mockasins defy description – suffice to say they are the minds behind such titles as ‘Sneaky Dog Friend’, ‘There Goes Tane’ and ‘I Nude You’. “Just when you think you've seen it all…along comes something so utterly new, unique and exciting you just know that the music world is about to be a little bit stirred and shaken up.” The quotes say it all…

Pig Out
Pig Out formed in Christchurch in March 2006. Their debut album ‘Club Poems’ shot to critical acclaim receiving nothing less than outstanding reviews: ‘Out of nowhere New Zealand’s finest live dance-punk band have made the best techno album to come out of this country ever…5/5” - Real Groove Magazine

The Mixtape Connection with Ed Musik

Christchurch-bred indie-electro explosion The Mixtape Connection return from tearing Melbourne’s party scene to pieces. Indie, electro, eclectic and cool, this fashionista will drop the sweet tracks while Ed Musik makes his move on the mic.

Ed Musik is a mainstay of Christchurch’s indie-electro scene. The self-proclaimed mobile disco has performed with many of our country’s brightest talents, including The Shocking Pinks, Frase and Bri, Charlie Ash and the 2007 Dux de Lux RounDUp winners Bang! Bang! Eche! Come in early to hear what Ed and the Mixtape connection team decide to begin the day with!

Hosted by Sticky Fingaz and the $mix Crew
Christchurch’s very own Hip Hop loud-hailer has been spreading the gospel up North. Following countless cameo appearances on RDU98.5FM, he returns for Sounday to remind us what it really is to hear the best from a bona fide beat preacher. Including special appearances from the crew of THE $MIX SHOW on RDU98.5FM – the undisputed hip-hop heavyweights of the airwaves, Sticky will introduce all the acts and keep the day flowing.
