The Show: I still get nervous metaphysically…

Artwork by New Brighton and Christchurch music legend BLAIR PARKES

Musically the New Year used to feel like the graveyard shift of the music business –  a time of the year full of remixes and reissues and repackaging. This year, maybe due to the kids just getting on with getting on there seems to be a steady stream of releases coming out of Christchurch – Ōtautahi.

For that reason on the show today listen out for recent releases from Joint favourites Kelvin Hurts (ex CHC now ALK), Liam K. Swiggs, Mad Frank, Dilemma Beats, Jagā, a sneaky threesome from pickle darling, and some synth loveliness from the mysterious Supernova Wolf. Plus we plunder the immaculate selections of Keytars & Violins for some of the best left field techno of 2018. Happy New Year.

And speaking of Christchurch output, the artwork above is by New Brighton and Christchurch music legend Blair Parkes. Listen to his tunes at https://blairparkes.bandcamp.com and have a peek at his artworks at https://blairparkes.wordpress.com

The Show: Regifting

Whilst The Joint enjoys what is left of the Holidays we’re digging into the archives to present a Christmas mix from 2010. We have no recollection of making this or the reasons why it was made. We don’t think it was ever broadcast on any terrestrial or web based radio station.

Our (re)gift to you.
