The Revenge (UK)

THE REVENGE
[Roar Groove, Glasgow]
with
Frank Booker
T Rice
Hudge

Roar Groove label head and 6th Borough Project (Official) member, Graeme Clark aka The Revenge is heading to Auckland for his debut NZ performance at Neck of the Woods.

All the way from the UK, The Revenge has spent the last fifteen years curating and cultivating quality disco flecked house and his remixes and edits have been a staple of discerning DJ's crates for many years. He has a gift for crafting forward-thinking and inspiring cuts although his work pays fitting tribute to the past. 

One of the most prolific producers of the last 10 years, if dubby deep house and highly prized disco re-edits are your kind of things then come dance to a master of it.

Of course, his precocious skillset doesn’t stop there. Variety is the spice of life, and from tracks that defined the nu­disco movement around the end of last decade (his collaboration with Craig Smith’s ‘The Soul Part II’ in 2009) to EPs such as ‘Body Fusion’ and ‘Incredible Shellsuit’, both on his newest successful imprint ‘Roar Groove’, Clark’s bountiful career has seen him release on an abundance of illustrious labels. These include his own DFA, also Pokerflat, Needwant, My Favorite Robot and his own former imprint the much admired Instruments Of Rapture, making him a sine qua non in any aficionado’s record collection.

He also boasts a strong reputation for deep, dark and twisted killer DJ sets. Whether home, as a firm favourite at Glasgow’s iconic Sub Club, or away, be it Tresor (Berlin), Sankeys (Manchester), Lola Club (Shanghai), Space (Ibiza), Panther Room (NYC), he provides charismatic live performances, with a deft skill for reading a room just right and filling a dancefloor.

Teamed up with Friends & Whanau then you know this will be a jam! Djs Frank Booker, Hudge and T Rice will complete the bill.

$20 Advance tickets available from Under The Radar.

The Beths : Future Me Hates Me Tour

100% GOOD & Undertheradar.co.nz
The Beths NZ Album Release Tour

After a whirlwind of dates in the US, UK, EU and Australia, The Beths will be returning to our shores for five shows in mid September. The tour is in support of their newly minted album 'Future Me Hates Me' which comes out today, August 10th via Carpark Records in Washington DC. Anyone who's seen The Beths live already can testify to their electric magnetism and fun arrangements.

“There’s a lot of sad sincerity in the lyrics,” says Stokes, “That relies on the music having a light heart and sense of humor to keep it from being too earnest.” Channeling their stew of personal-canon heroes while drawing inspiration from contemporaries like Alvvays and Courtney Barnett, The Beths serve up deeply emotional lyrics packaged within heavenly sounds that delight in probing the limits of the pop form. “That’s another New Zealand thing,” Stokes concludes with a laugh. “We’re putting our hearts on our sleeves—and then apologizing for it.” The result is nothing less than one of the standout records of 2018, who's title single has made the venerable 2018 Silver Scroll's long list.

The band will be joined on all dates by Wellington's Hans Pucket, except Queenstown - where Fables will be supporting the band.

Thurs Sept 13th ~ AUCKLAND ~ Neck Of The Woods (+afterparty!!)
Fri Sept 14th ~ WELLINGTON ~ MEOW
Thurs Sept 20th ~ DUNEDIN ~ THE COOK
Fri Sept 21st ~ CHRISTCHURCH - BLUE SMOKE

Veteran Detroit Rapper Obie Trice Announces ‘Cheers’ 15th Year Anniversary Australian & New Zealand Tour

The Real Name No Gimmicks rapper Obie Trice is hitting Australia & New Zealand shores this July to celebrate his album ‘Cheers’ 15th Year Anniversary.

The title track "Cheers" celebrates Obie's successful debut into the rap game after being in the Detroit underground for many years. The album's title is a homage to the long running NBC sitcom of the same name.

Topics Obie has touched on this album include his life on the streets of Detroit, problems with his mother, relationships with women and the soulful reminder that, despite having made it into the mainstream, he has not forgotten his friends.
The album debuted at number 5 on the Billboard 200 with 226,000 copies sold in its first week and has sold over 2 million worldwide

The notable album also received love down-under as an ARIA charting album with 2 big singles being recognised in 2003.

Obie Trice went from no one to someone in the rap world quickly when Eminem signed him to Shady Records and executive produced his debut album ‘Cheers.’

Born on the west-side of Detroit in the Schoolcraft and Greenfield area, Trice began his rap career humbly. He dropped out of Cooley High School in the early '90s and began making ends meet, which wasn't too easy in the cold, abandoned streets of Detroit.

His turning point came in 1998 with the birth of his daughter, Kobie. Shortly afterward, he took note of Eminem's breakthrough success in 1999 and began to have faith that he too could make it in the rap game, despite living in wayward Detroit.

Fast forward a few years and Obie has cemented an extensive rap career of his own by establishing an independent music label ‘Black Market Entertainment.’ His first release from the label was ‘Bottoms Up,’ and in 2015 he released ‘Good Girls’ from his album ‘The Hangover.’

Still in the game, and with no intention of stopping Obie’s shows will be one not to be missed!

Jed Parsons 'Midnight Feast' Album Release

Jed Parsons is hitting the road to celebrate the release of his upcoming debut album MIDNIGHT FEAST, which is out on July 13. 

Presented by Undertheradar, Parsons will tour with his full band, which includes Jonty O'Connor on drums; Moses Robbins on bass guitar and Tom Harris on keyboards. 

The shows follow an action-packed few months for the Kiwi singer-songwriter who burst onto the local scene in January with the debut single from his upcoming album, ‘Get Lost’. 

Described as a “tasty pop morsel” by music blog 13th Floor and “a heck of an introduction by www.music.net.nz ‘Get Lost’ debuted on Apple’s ‘Best of the Week’ playlist, was added at Hauraki and the bNets and helped to secure Parsons a slot at this year’s Auckland City Limits Festival. He then followed it up with the release of another gem from the upcoming album, ‘Everybody’s Stupid’ which received love from Hauraki and the bNets. The song’s video premiered on Tone Deaf in Australia. 

“If you’re a fan of upbeat indie-pop, then you might already be aware of Kiwi muso Jed Parsons. But if not, he’s undoubtedly about to become one of your new favourite artists…” - Tone Deaf

‘Time’, the next single from MIDNIGHT FEAST, will be released on June 15, paving the way for what is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated Kiwi albums of 2018, and a tour that’s not-to-be-missed!
