Led by Darren Mathiassen (drummer of Kiwi drum n bass outfit Shapeshifter), Stretchfoot takes us on journey deep into the soul of what is now a now 20-year phenomenon. During the recession of the early nineties, dance music producers dug out a six-second break from the drum solo of GC Coleman on Amen, Brother by The Winstons.

Extraordinary yet unruly, this organic old-school beat injected energy into both dancefloor culture and dispirited communities with its fierce and provocative power. Now, as civilisation languishes once again under unsympathetic regimes, an urgency to unite, empower and edify existence is reawakening a rhythmic rebellion. However, this time the revolution is being commandeered by a radical troop of musical guerrillas

Stretchfoot is Joe Callwood (guitar), James Illingworth (keys), Johnny Lawrence (bass), and Darren Mathiassen (drums).

Presented in association with Momo

Wellington Jazz Festival is on June 7-11.
