Action Bronson Returns to New Zealand This April

MAZDEF Productions, Good As Gold and Robin Fernando presents Action Bronson in Wellington on Wednesday 23 April at Bodega

Robin Fernando, Arcade and 95bFM presents Action Bronson in Auckland on Thursday 24 April at The Studio

The ginger rap-genius of Albanian ancestry is set to return to New Zealand this April. Action Bronson has become one of hip hop’s most charismatic and colourful characters over the past two years. And New Zealand has the pleasure of catching this 28-year old Queens native for two shows in Auckland and Wellington.

Off the back of an impressive Rapture tour through Australasia with Eminem, Action Bronson has been hailed by The New York Times as “one of the most promising prospects in New York hip-hop.”

Born with the name Ariyan Arslani, Action Bronson grew up with a fascination for quality eating and consequently, songs in his discography often read like menu items: “Roasted Bone Marrow,” “Pouches of Tuna,” “Jerk Chicken,” “Ceviche.” Rolling Stone, appreciating the theme, described Bronson’s music as “the ultimate in comfort food, with a contemporary twist.”

The ravenous musical connoisseur grew up admiring artists like Kool G. Rap, Cam’ron and Mobb Deep, he never contemplated rapping himself. The ex-chef penned his first rap song in 2009 - a satirical song over a Southern beat CD and the results were impressive. With a penchant for flamboyant phraseology and an oversized personality, Action Bronson has gained world-wide recognition in a very short space of time.

In 2011 alone, he released Bon Appetit….Bitch!, The Program EP, Dr. Lecter and Well Done. 2012 introduced collaborations with artists like Earl Sweatshirt, Riff Raff and SpaceGhostPurp, as well as Blue Chips, the brilliant street album produced by Party Supplies. In August of 2012, Bronson signed with Vice/Warner Bros Records. His latest collection, 'Blue Chips 2' with Party Supplies dropped in October 2013. Watch out 2014.

This rapper is hot as a habanero right now. He sold out his last shows in New Zealand - get in quick as these shows will sell out.

Tickets are on sale from Friday via Dashtickets.co.nz and all usual outlets.

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
