There is only one place to be on the 15th of July and that is Melkweg, Amsterdam. On that particular Friday you’ll be introduced to best New  Zealand’s got to offer when it comes to electronic soul, hiphop & funk.

Even if you are not familiar with any of the artists in this line up … you’ll experience
maximum pleasure at a price I consider to be minimum damage.  Cause everyone from Ladi6 to Electric Wire Hustle will most definitely give you your moneys worth!!

Before you start reading the first thing you should know is that EDI productions presents a FREE DOWNLOAD promo EP for the L!VE FROM NEW ZEALAND party @ the Melkweg, Amsterdam on July 15th. Reason for all this info ? … Because I’ve added a stream to this post and I would suggest you just press play and start streaming while you read this …

Ladi6 feat. Parks & Julien Dyne
A sultry voice with razor sharp wit and a stage show to match, Ladi6 is New Zealand’s leading hip-hop soul artist and in her own right. She is renowned for her energetic live performances, sublime soulful vocals and conscious lyrics. Bringing us soulful hiphopwith a funkin’ reggae edge. Ladi6 just released her 2nd album, The Liberation
Off…. Ladi6 is accompanied by partner dj, musician, producer and singer Parks.​A​0

Julien Dyne is a multi-talented artist – a top New Zealand drummer, producer and
visual artist. Since his selection for the Red Bull Music Academy in Rome in 2004 Julien has been working with international artists and forging his own unique sound as a producer.  Mr. Dyne has a special place in my heart ever since I’ve heard “Layer” which is one the best tracks on his debut Pins and Digits.

Electric Wire Hustle developed their own sound and twist on modern hip-hop psychedelic and soul music. EWH reach while referencing the main points of music past thick drums and percussion layers of synth lines hints of Fender Rhodes and nylon stringed guitar, the neck snapping while the ear tap into his soulful vocals. The aforementioned is taken from one of the countless bio’s on the net and is most definitely tha truth!! But if you happen to be familiar with lead singer Mara TK’s
voice and know that the very talented Benny Tones is their official sound tech you probably already have your ticket.

Producer, Dj and audio engineer, Benny Tones is a talent you have to keep an eye on. Not only because he is part of Electric Wire Hustle but I consider him an artist in his own right. Don’t believe me?! Just get a taste of his latest Chrysalis when you click here.​ytones​=BoSWmH0p6Yg

I’m gonna level with you when it comes to Isaac Aesili. He happens to be on of  New Zealand’s talents I am not familiar with…yet. But after some research on this trumpet player, producer, vocalist and Dj … I know his electronofied Soul/Funk/RnB/Jazz sound is one you should get acquainted with.​=iYxjSsBJryg​=YhxF8gU5snM

Last But not least the Pacific Riders Dj’s plan to shower everybody with contagious basslines, bleeps, rhythms and beats.​​-trip-steppin-session-2/
