NZ on Air Music presents Grid City Grooves
Written by Andy Pulzar on October 4, 2017
Grid City Grooves is a one-hour weekly show (repeated in 2 other timeslots), focusing on Christchurch’s music scene (and the surrounding area), artists, producers and events.
Most weeks we feature a guest artist in studio, playing at least 5 of their songs/productions, digging into their process, sometimes even including live performances of their releases. Grid City Grooves will also occasionally celebrate Christchurch artists that went on to “make it big” like Shapeshifter, Salmonella Dub, Tiki, Ladi 6 and the like, but generally features new and up & coming Christchurch acts.
If a live guest isn’t able to make it in for the show (which has happened a few times due to the Sunday timeslot, often at the last minute), a special focus or theme is chosen and presented, such as “summer festivals”, “mid-winter grooves”, etc.
Artists featured during the last year include Jay Roacher, Mysterious D, Flux, Furious Hori, Getset, Breaker, Duzra, Sniff, King Jack, BluePrint, Blackjack, Seeker, Scruffy, Tiki Taane, Sad Panda, the Exponents, Maya Payne, Tali, Shapeshifter, Jabz MC, Skyfalks, Gawn Deep, Misshin, Camo MC, Truth, Taipei Teahouse, etc.
