Gig Information

Weird Together represents a seamless blend of organic music discovery and collaboration. New
Zealand radio host/DJ/music connoisseur Nick Dwyer, in tandem with legendary Auckland-based UK
producer/DJ Dick Magik Johnson are at the helm curating the group's eclectic sound. The two had a
fortuitous recording session where they experimented with music that Nick collected on his worldly
travels fronting the National Geographic TV series about global music culture — Making Tracks. Nicks interest in all things African came from a udder fixation with National Geographic magazines in his pimply youth .A fixation that continues to this day ....

Ethiopian jazz records, contemporary club from Ghana’s streets of Accra, plus dance music from the
Caribbean and South America found their way into the studio and Weird Together was born.
In 2011, translating their formative collaboration into a live show meant adding more bandmates, and
as Nick & Dick continue to explore new sounds and rhythms, the band has evolved and grown.
Weird Together earned reputable co-signs from a number of the finest purveyors of new global
rhythms such as DJ Nickodemus and Daniel Haaksman. British DJ/producer Miles Cleret signed
Weird Together to his London-based Soundway Records label to release their debut EP and remix
EP in 2015. The group caught the attention of Jillionaire from Major Lazer, who released their free
single 'Bounce to The Beat,' which prompted him to sign Weird Together to his Feel Up Records
label. This year, Weird Together is prepping a number of releases through Feel Up with “Ready For
This” being the first of the new tunes for 2016...

Weird Together were one of the standout acts of the 2016 Soundsplash festival ,with their good time percussion heavy vibe resounding with the masses as they played main stage before dusk .
Dec 27 brings the stripped down version of main guys Nick D and Dick Johnson along with abundant percussion and ethereal vocals promising to bring not only a feel of Africa but the groove of the Carribean to the Yotty .

Nick and Dick are also 2 of NZs most respected and indemand Djs and will be book ending The Weird Together Soundsystem with their own dj sets which will cover every end of the electronic musical spectrums
