SUNSHINE SOUND SYSTEM
SUNSHINE SOUND SYSTEM have been nicin’ up dancehalls from Barcelona to Brixton since 2001. While the boys do spend a fair amount of time at festivals chucking a frisbee round, don’t underestimate the focused dance floor firepower they launch at showtime. Strictly killer reggae riddims, heavyweight hiphop, mashup murderation and weapons grade dancehall detonate alongside a fusillade of fresh junglistic fiyah. Downtown puts it together on the Ones; Twos while MC KPz drops freestyles and uplifts the crowd, hosting and toasting like no other. Holy sh*t this is gonna be a heavyweight session.
JESS B emerged as a dynamic breath of fresh air in New Zealand’s hip hop scene back in 2017, JESSB has taken that early momentum and has whipped it up into a proper whirlwind; becoming a force to be reckoned with both at home and around the globe. The former premier netball player with the Northern Mystics has shone a renewed light on NZ hip hop, winning industry acclaim and the MTV European Music Award for Best New Zealand Act in 2019. They commented “If you’re a Missy Elliott fan, you’ll want to take note of New Zealand’s hottest up-and-coming rapper.” Check out JESSB’s fusion of hip hop, dancehall and Afrobeat as she creates something uniquely her own, we know
you will love it.
South Auckland-born Samoan rapper SAVAGE is New Zealand’s undisputed King of Hip-Hop and has probably the most recognisable voice in the business! He had a global hit with the rap classic Swing, that achieved platinum status in the US. He also rules the electronic scene since Freaks with Timmy Trumpet went an incredible 5x platinum. SAVAGE always brings the party, don’t miss his BOI Music Festival set.
MUROKI plays music, surfs, skates and brews a good coffee for Raglan locals. This young Kenyan-Kiwi is brimming with talent and soul far beyond his years. His
multifaceted silky and rhythmic grooves have strong ties to his surfing background, blending sounds from South America to Africa and back to the West. His breakout hit, Wavy, is still riding high on the airwaves with new music and summer festival appearances on the horizon. We can’t wait to host this incredible up-and-coming artist and show him some of our best Far North surf spots.
Sunshine Sound System are joined onstage by Aotearoa’s undisputed Queen of the Dancehall, RUBI-DU aka MC Silva. This highly regarded Auckland reggae artist has been making waves in music both here in New Zealand and overseas, and most recently on a successful tour with NZ’s kings of dub, Fat Freddy’s Drop. Known for her electrifying live performance, her Caribbean heritage and Rastafarian childhood have helped to shape her unique and unforgettable style, while staying true to her kiwi roots.
