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.

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 Northland By-Election

Supposedly, Winston Peters’ victory in Northland has exposed the simmering dissatisfaction with the government that exists out in the provinces. Yet it remains to be seen whether this defeat will have much significance – and not simply because if and when Labour resumes business as usual in the Northland seat at the next election, Peters’ hold on it could simply evaporate.

On Saturday, National’s electorate vote declined by 7,000 votes, as the 9,000 majority it won last September turned into a 4,000 vote deficit – mainly because Labour supporters followed the nod and wink given by Labour leader Andrew Little, and voted tactically for Peters. In the process, Labour’s vote went down from nearly 9,000 votes six months ago, to only 1,315 on Saturday. More>>
