    Episode 84 - Badjelly Ben

    For episode #84 it's Samir BW, back after a little break.

    As we type this up, we're enjoying the sounds of Bad Jelly Collective on Bandcamp from the Badjelly Co. page. We were blessed to initially cross paths through the interweb radars and also instagram. BadJelly Ben brings a beautiful korero to the space of BW.



    Be sure to check out BadJelly Co. on Bandcamp alongside all the other platforms :)

    PS: Thanks to all the support we had for our very first online remix competition for BW - today I'm reminded of awesome foundations from palmy and wellington, and the birthplace of BW (starting as open beatmaking sessions most weekend nights at McDonalds Princess Street Studios). This was when the name BW was coined - a salute to princess street mcdonald's studios, "the BW" and the student radio network. A grounding home away from home, a placemaking safe space, topped off with our own friendly and motivational nightly security guards, left over cups at the refill machine, and yes, you guessed it, Free WiFi (which was even more of a blessing when it didn't work for productivity purposes haha).

    As always the joy is equally had when we cross paths in person, so keep following the music and whilst doing so certainly don't forget that vow to keep your balance because balance is key. To anyone reading this, keep being awesome and don't loose faith - you've got this :)

    Episode 83 - Kepz

    Episode 83 - Kepz

    For episode #83 we've got a very special one, we're joined back with New Zealand's newest reigning beat-maker champion Kepz.

    This is season #2 of BW (episode 80 onwards, with lots more quick check-ins coming up in this season).



    For those that don't know, Kepz along with his brother Wadz have put New Zealand on the world map, carrying on from producers DJ Spell, Bharu + more.

    Kepz has won well over fifty of the world's biggest & most respected online beat-battle championships in today's new & modern online music world, and has done so all in less than a year. This makes Kepz a new record-holder in New Zealand and also puts him in the world-records for the amount of 1st place wins across all major beat-battles globally.



    A huge shoutout to the SRN - our home in palmy and wellies for all things NZ DJs, beatmakers, bands, musos and the home-base for BW before BW.

    Peace, love and blessings y'all.

    Episode 79 - Samir

    Wrapping up season one of the podcast. We’ll be back before we know it. The world is very small, and it has many people you can trust - never for a second be conditioned by powers that be to believe these people are hard to come by. Small circles can be cultivated into bigger circles. You and I are one of over eight billion. Don’t give up, you’re a champion.

Thank You! ❤️

Massive shout out to Samir (DECKTRIK) for creating The Beat Whānau Podcasts. It’s great to have someone interviewing local producers and not only giving them a moment to shine but giving others an opportunity to get to know these artists, their inspiration, work ethic and mindset too!
