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:

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
