Fatman Scoop In New Zealand for the Very First Time This May for The ‘Sunrise’ Tour


America’s favourite hype man - Fatman Scoop – is coming to New Zealand for the very first time this May, with support from UK beat man DJ Bluey.

Fatman Scoop is notorious for shouting his name and requesting that you do whatever he tells you… so put your hands up! Whether it’s Scoop’s rambunctious baritone hyping a track or video cameos for P.Diddy, 50 Cent, or Elephant Man to name a few, Scoop’s booming voice, catchy hooks, electrifying energy and charismatic presence never go unnoticed!

His most recent track ‘Sunrise’ (out now through Liberator Music) sees him collaborate with Major Lazer member Jillionaire, and the Ghanaian MC Fuse ODG. Premiered on Beats 1 with Zane Lowe, the feel-good anthem pairs Scoop’s commanding vocals withFuse ODG’s rousing melodies.

The song’s accompanying video depicts life in Darak, Senegal.

Jillionaire explains:
"For many years I've been fascinated with the Gris Gris Fighters of Senegal, so much so that I wanted to do a documentary piece on them. When the opportunity came up to work with a French/ Senegalese crew on my new music video, we put together this coming of age story between two young lovers - a bright eyed young woman exploring a new environment and a young man hoping to perfect his art as a wrestler."

Other noteable Fatman Scoop bangers include ‘Be Faithful’, a feature vocal on Missy Elliot’s Grammy Award winning single ‘Lose Control’ and ‘It Takes Scoop (feat. DJ Kool’).

Taking to the stage to perform his classic hits and DJ up a storm, Fatman Scoop’s rambunctious energy on stage is where he’s earned his hype man title. https://mn2s.com/booking-agency/live-roster/fatman-scoop

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.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
