A$AP Ferg to Headline Two Shows In New Zealand

A$AP Ferg to Headline Two Shows In New Zealand

Friday 28th March 2014 – Auckland – The Studio
Saturday 29th March 2014 – Wellington - Bodega 


Slow, silky and menacing, with twists of eccentricity, his debut is a finely constructed mood piece – say it ties the room together.”– Rolling Stone on Trap Lord
Through 13 tracks, he (Ferg) soundtracks the type of night you imagine the Mob has when they’re back home in New York—filled with bountiful amounts of sex, drugs, money and nondescript, boastful fuckery. If there’s one thing Ferg knows how to do, it’s get you in the mood to rage.” – XXL Magazine

Robin Fernando is proud to present two shows in New Zealand of one of A$AP Mob’s most prominent members the Trap Lord himself, A$AP Ferg.

This will be the Harlem-bred wordsmith’s first trip to New Zealand, giving hip-hop fans the chance to catch hits from his debut studio album Trap Lord, which hit the Top 10 of the US Billboard 200.
Ferg has risen to soaring heights this year with his hits ‘Work REMIX’ and ‘Shabba.’ His latest single ‘Shabba REMIX’ features the legendary Shabba Ranks himself, Migos & Busta Rhymes. The energetic single bursts with bottom-heavy bass and skittering drums energy. Trap Lord as a whole reflects an incredibly successful year for Ferg, as he draws up hip-hop’s colourful past to blend it with a collection of sonic influences from his hometown.

“Trap Lord is an underground rap album for listeners reared on a decade of 808s and melodic variations of John Carpenter’s “Halloween” melody. It’s the sound of old New York gracefully mixing with the new New York. And it’s really good, basically.” — hip-hop website, Vibe.com

Picking up the title of BET’s Rookie of the Year for 2013, Ferg’s winning streak doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.

Catch his electric live show infused with deliciously dark beats from his year in the spotlight. New Zealand is ready for a serious hit of one of rap’s hottest players, don’t miss your opportunity to see Brooklyn’s Trap Lord in 2014.

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
