The Party Party!


THE PARTY PARTY!


Take Kim Dotcom & 10 of New Zealand's most awesome music acts & boom! A nationwide tour of epic proportions kicking off on July 23!

The Party Party is one BIG night of fun inspired by getting out the VOTE in New Zealand’s upcoming election and changing the Government.

Kim Dotcom loves to throw a party and has been waiting for this opportunity since unfortunate circumstances lead to the cancellation of his Party Party at Vector Arena earlier this year.

STATE OF MIND

Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, State of Mind are the duo of Stu Maxwell and Patrick Hawkins. They have released four studio albums and are the former hosts of the hugely popular “Next Level” 95BFM drum n bass show.

State of Mind are now signed to Black Sun Empire's flagship Blackout label.

OPTIMUS GRYME

OPTIMUS GRYME (aka Charlie B) has been an ambassador for bass music in New Zealand for more than 15 years. Gryme has spent the past 15 years pushing bass music to every corner of Aotearoa that will listen, and there's no way in hell he'll be stopping anytime soon!

SONS OF ZION

Six years ago childhood friends Rio Panapa, Joel Latimer and Samuel Eriwata teamed up with Marika Hodgson, Dylan Stewart and Tawhiri Littlejohn to form Sons of Zion. Hailing from Rotorua, Whangarei and Auckland, they were unified as a band by their work ethic, open-eared approach to music, and a strong collective focus on regional identity, family and community.

L.A.B - Laughton & Brad Kora

After a decade in one of the biggest bands in NZ,Kora, Laughton Kora has teamed up with brother Brad to form the next generation of sound. L.A.B. is a collective two-piece of psychedelic funk, electronic rock and a whole lot of soul. Please report to the dancefloor.

PNC

PNC (aka Sam Hansen) is one of today's most talked about artists in Aotearoa Hip-hop. His guest appearances alone have led people to credit him with arguably "the best flow in New Zealand". He has opened for international heavyweights such as Snoop Dogg, Lupe Fiasco and Dizzee Rascal. Sam is currently hard at work putting the finishing touches on his third studio LP.

KAMANDI

Kamandi (aka Tyrone Frost) is one of the leading lights of New Zealand's contemporary electronic music scene. Hailing from Christchurch, Kamandi's output has seen him accumulate over three hundred thousand plays on Soundcloud and perform alongside Jonwayne, Mono/Poly, Lunice, Julien, Dyne, Baths, Tokimonsta, Daedelus, Gold Panda and Kaytranada.

TEAM DYNAMITE

Auckland hip-hop group Team Dynamite have been cited as a critical inspiration by the likes of @Peace's Tom Scott, and successfully swerved their way into pole position as the pre-eminent sound of party rap in New Zealand. When Haz' beats start slapping, and Tony and Lance kick into their machine gun rhymes, friendly banter and give-it-all stage energy, it's rare that an audience isn't electrified.

TOMMY ILL

Tommy Ill is a rapper and a kind-hearted gentleman. He makes upbeat, danceable rap songs about heartbreak and, er, drinking. His friends DJ Prom Queen and Shorty K join him on stage for vocal and moral support. Salient Magazine reckons Tommy’s "one of the most interesting and entertaining voices in modern New Zealand music".

BEATMOB

Beat Mob (Artur) has become a hyped figure in the Wellington DJ production scene. Part DJ, beat maker, composer and multi-instrumentalist, the one-man Beat Mob is a musical force.

Gordon Campbell: On The Farcical Elevation Of David Seymour

With the election won, it’s time to find jobs for the boy. David Seymour is the Act Party’s latest scrounger to be rewarded by the National Party, and not only with a seat in Parliament. This time around, a couple of parliamentary Undersecretary posts in education and regulatory reform have been thrown in, plus an annual salary of $175,000 while he learns the ropes. Shouldn’t Seymour at least be put on a 90 day trial before he gets his hands on that sort of serious moolah?

It would be for his own good, really. At this rate, Act is never going to learn how to make its own way in the world More>>
