ENO X DIRTY
Since the release of their debut album ‘Evil Adventures and Happy Endings’ in 2017, Grey Lynn heroes Eno x Dirty have been selling out shows all across the country (and a couple in Asia), performing at festivals like Rhythm and Vines, smashing streaming records and shifting units with no signs of slowing. Eno x Dirty’s ‘Honest To Whom’ is their first full project since 2017’s ridiculous debut. Are they albums? Are they EPS? Who knows. Recorded at Red Bull Studios in Auckland with Ben Lawson, the single Get That Cash is an abrasive and constantly changing hook driven beast, showcasing one of Eno’s first times in front of the mic. “‘Honest To Whom’ is a reflection of where and who we are now. It’s the first time we will be releasing something free of the feeling the material is old to us, instead we are proud to stand next it like a 4 year old showing his parents the macaroni painting he did at kindy that day.”
TOM SCOTT (DJ)
A household name in the Auckland hip hop scene (Homebrew, @Peace, Average Rap Band, Avantdale Bowling Club), Tom Scott is bringing his selections all night long and inbetween sets.
Digable Planets, the seminal alternative hip-hop trio comprised of Mary Ann ‘Ladybug Mecca’ Vieira, Craig ‘Doodlebug’ Irving and Ishmael ‘Butterfly’ Butler have finally reunited and performing for the first time EVER in New Zealand backed by a full rhythm section!
The group’s debut album “Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space)” was released in 1993 under Pendulum Record, with lead single ‘Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)’ becoming a crossover Top 20 billboard hit, earning gold certification by the RIAA and winning a Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. Following on the success of their first record, “Blowout Comb” was released in 1994 becoming another instant classic.
Digable Planet’s fusion of Jazz and Hip Hop broadened Hip Hop’s reach and expanded its connection to music history, African American culture and the sounds of the streets. Both LPs are proven Hip Hop classics thriving on listeners’ ability to relate, think, feel and be inspired.
A very rare occasion to witness the full band in action on our shores, this concert is not to miss for the old heads, the new heads and all that share a love for Hip Hop and Jazz.
