Weekend Tunes: J Dilla

Wow, where can I start really. J Dilla was an amazing producer, who has worked with anyone worth working with in Hip Hop (Slum Village, Erykah Badu, Pete Rock, Talib Kweli, Common, Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Janet Jackson...

Weekend Tunes: Onra

I was recently at a bit of a block for what to blog about for Weekend Tunes, so what did I do? I asked what people were listening to on twitter! Of course! @EntertainMe_NZ reminded me of Onra, and I'm kicking myself and how could...

Weekend Tunes: Dubwize

Following on a little from last weeks post (with Peter Tosh) I wanted to choose Dubwize for a Weekend Tunes slot. Really, I think the sunshine is getting to me and all I want to do is sit around reading books, drinking tea and listening...

Weekend Tunes: Peter Tosh

With Summer fast approaching, I'm thinking about music I like to have playing when friends are over for a barbecue, reading a book outside in the sun and generally sit around to. I love dub and reggae and Peter Tosh is really one of my...

Weekend Tunes: Jurassic 5

I LOVE Jurassic 5, since, like, forever. I saw them perform live at Big Day Out once and it was amazing! Turntablism at it's finest. My favourite album is Quality Control but I've also rediscovered Power In Numbers again too, so many gems! This album...

I totally feel like I am the last person to discover Foals. Accidentally bumped into them while looking for something totally different on You Tube, as you do. One of those accidental meetings that blossom into something beautiful. They are from Oxford in the UK, which i...

Weekend Tunes: The Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs

This is a bit of an oldie now (released in 2006) but it's such a goodie! If you're having a shit day, put this on, play it loud and do some lounge jumping. Honest, all your troubles will melt away. The track is called 'Gold...

Weekend Tunes: Little Dragon

Little Dragon are a 4 piece band from Sweden, they are a mix of sweet vocals with electronica beats and have been playing together since about 1996. I love this track 'Seconds' the video is kind of weird, but it all works! httpv://youtu.be/M34EGD7NIEw...

Weekend Tunes: Tiny Ruins

Another beautiful, talented artist from New Zealand. Tiny Ruins has just sort of popped up everywhere, and good reason too — she has a beautiful voice, soft like velvet and has a very likeable quality. Perfect for Sunday mornings in bed with a cup of...
