Chow Down : 013 El Pasko
Welcome to Episode 13 of our weekly guest mix - The Chow Down - curated by me, Scizzorhands. Each week, I'll bring you a different DJ as we travel all over the world, across loads of different genres.
When we first came up with the idea for these Chow Down guest mixes I had a vision. It was simple really, get DJ's who I knew were not about the "Norm". What's normal really tho'? Most DJ's who would play top 40 joints and club bangers still have their out-of-club choice of music too. I wanted to reach out to DJ's to bring their inner most loving for music out in these mixes. New Zealand has a large array of DJ's who fall in this category hence why we have Local radio stations such as Base FM.
What is Base FM? It's Auckland City's answer to 100% DJ orientanted music. When it was started the a phrase thrown around simply was just "play the good shit", this imply's that DJ's play what they feel is good. It fastly bacame a spot for DJ's into underground music from Hip-hop to Dancehall and even Drum an Bass to express what music they love. This hub also became a solid communtity and platform for like minded individuals who are deep into music of all kinds.
This weeks guest is a Hip-hop lover and host of Beats On Rye radioshow which can be caught on Base FM 6pm Sunday Evening.
