The festival season is not over yet with the best event of the year still to come!!Â BASE FM is once again holding its annual Shake â€˜N Bake in Ponsonby's Western Park.Â A combination of music & live-art in the park, which embrace the key elements of the underground hip hop culture. The event will be broadcasting live on BASE FM and you wonâ€™t have to worry about having to fork out cash on tickets - this event is free for the whole family!!!
Showcasing this year are the innovators not imitators:
On the live front, Aucklandâ€™s current leading hip-hop group Home Brew will be performing, alongside rising stars of the soulful groove Koru Licks, and the MC combo Shine Forum. Two of the nations most celebrated producers/drummers will be combining forces for this event: Wellingtonâ€™s Riki Gooch (Trinity Roots and Eru Dangerspiel fame) and Julien Dyne (Opensouls) will be pushing the outer limits of rhythm. A special producer showcase will feature NZâ€™s best up and coming beatâ€“makers Scratch 22 (Tourettes, Unscene),Â Miso Shiru (Charizma) & Ben Wah (Honeyclaws). Support from BASE FM DJâ€™s Gemma & An Pham, Chef D and JC/DC all pumping out of the 30Hertz Sound System.
