Parks (Brent Park-Tamati) stands as one of Aotearoa’s most renowned and respected producers, most notably as a founding member and Executive Producer of Ladi6. As an musician Parks with with modular synths and other electronics in improvised settings, working regularly with Julien Dyne, Riki Gooch and others.
Born and bred in Christchurch, Parks immersed himself in a melting pot of genres from rock and Hip-hop, to Soul, Jazz and Reggae. Here he joined the influential soul band Pacific Underground. In 2001, Parks was part of the formation of Verse Two - a hip-hop/soul live band with a number of members including Ladi6, Julien Dyne, Matapi Turua, Mark Vanilau and Scribe. This was the door to production that set Park’s up for a future exploring new sounds.
Teaching himself to record and produce by necessity, over time and through experimentationhis signature sound began to evolve that would become inherent to that of Ladi6. This long-standing partnership has produced multiple albums and won several awards including Best Urban/Hip Hop Album at the Aotearoa Music Awards. In 2019, Parks launched Honzoh, a collective with close friend and collaborator Brandon Haru. As Honzoh, they create instrumental collages of electronic music compositions and soundscapes, that reference the early electronic pioneers as well as modern rap music.

Cory Champion works as a composer and performer and is a graduate of the New Zealand School of Music. He also performs as Borrowed cs, writing and producing his own electronic music. He has been inspiring to many for years with his tasteful drumming and prolific musical output. Cory exemplifies the new breed of contemporary musician, diverse and well adept at playing drums in a conventional live band setting, regardless of genre (Electric Wire Hustle/Shocking Pinks/Clear Path Ensemble/Glass Vaults/Lucien Johnson).

Riki Gooch (Cave Circles, DJ Oboe) is a founding member of seminal band Trinity Roots. He has since lent his drumming and production talents to legendary New Zealand artists claiming his position as one of New Zealand’s finest and in demand musicians working with Jonathan Crayford, Bic Runga and Fat Freddy’s Drop and many more. Riki is also the brains behind the massive Eru Dangerspiel Ensemble and a solo artist under the moniker Cave Circles.

Oghum is the insterstellar duo of Nell Thomas (Orchestra of Spheres, Cookie Brooklyn and the Crumbs) and Jonny Marks (All Seeing Hand, Mean Bones) performing on theremin and Synthi AKS.
