Dan Aux’s Debut Album Drops in August

Dan Aux’s Debut Album Drops in August, Announces Release Party


Resident George FM ‘Selectah’ DJ Dan Aux will drop his debut album Playlist on 1 August, before embarking on a nationwide tour of the country.

Including tracks with P-Money, State of Mind and Fire & Ice, alongside a plethora of exciting features such as Raiza Biza, Tali, Randa, Imagine This & Gemma Copas,Ed Waaka, Allday & Steven A. Clark, the album bumps between the bright stars, the break throughs and the brand news.

A teaser to his debut, Dan Aux dropped his first single ‘All Day’ last year, and has since been blessing the airwaves with follow up singles ‘Clockwork’, ‘Kelly Bundy’ and now ‘Get Ya Ass Up’, all the whilst working on perfecting his debut solo project.

In celebration of the album, Dan Aux will kick off his nationwide tour with a release party at Auckland’s Studio on Friday 1st August, which will also feature performances from P-Money, State of Mind, Randa & Cymbol 303 plus special guests.

A man of many laurels, Dan balances life as a DJ, producer, musician and radio jock all at once. After arriving on Kiwi shores, he landed the perfect job at George FM as the host of The George Selectah Show. It’s a gig that has allowed him to showcase his incredible knack for seeking out the unusual and remarkable, against a populous who are too-often content with the ordinary.

Dan Aux also mixed the George FM Yearbook 2012, which took the biggest and best tracks from 2012 off the airwaves and into one knock out collection. The album broke into the top 10 in the compilation charts.

Playlist will be available for pre-order from iTunes in the week leading up to the release, and available for purchase in-stores and online from 1 August. Tickets for his Auckland Album Release Party are available now from dashtickets.co.nz, and on the door for the following shows:

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
