Press release:

Team Dynamite are thrilled to announce their first tour in over six years, in support of their sold out top five album 'Respect The Process'.

The band will be celebrating the release with a six date tour around New Zealand, including shows in Gisborne, Napier, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and finishing in Auckland.

Respect the Process features a stellar cast of special guests, including soulstress Bailey Wiley, 'Prince of Grey Lynn' Diggy Dupe and singer/songwriter Louis Baker. A short documentary has been produced by Tom Scott, who released the album via his label, Years Gone By.

Haz Beats, Producer and band-member explains the raw emotion of creating the new album. "I had to turn the music up to drown out what the world was saying about us at one stage. Every song was a chance to reset the wrongs and let those feelings bleed through our music."

Team Dynamite formed in the late 2000s after aspiring teenage MCs Lucky Lance and Tony Teez decided to take hip hop beyond their weekend freestyle sessions at a local park. An introduction to producer Haz Beats provided the beats they were missing, and suddenly Team Dynamite was a legitimate group, building a reputation for dance-floor friendly hip hop and becoming mainstays of the Young Gifted & Broke collective.

The group released The Demo Tape in 2010, Shepherds Delight in 2014 and Never Again EP in 2015. They've collaborated with a who's who of New Zealand music including Che Fu, @peace, Laughton Kora and Bailey Wiley. Their high energy live show saw the group play major festivals including Homegrown and Rhythm & Vines. They opened for international acts Methodman and Redman and supported local acts such as Fat Freddy's Drop and Ladi6.

Team Dynamite has been quiet for the last few years, save for a few singles to keep fans intrigued. They've focused on other projects - music and otherwise. Tony is a youth worker, Lance has a clothing brand and Haz continues to make beats and produce music, notably for Avantdale Bowling Club and Miloux, as well as touring with the re-formed Home Brew.
