Without the prompts of productions like Ant Timpson's Come To Daddy or the true crime story of Black Hands, Pārāwai-based sonic adventurer Karl Steven (Queen Neptune, Supergroove) looks to the Super City for inspiration on new song 'Tāmaki 5000'. Following the announcement of his debut solo album All Of Human Emotion On Microfiche and supersonic lead single 'Freedom Bells', the award-winning soundtrack composer returns with a track written and recorded during weekly jams with Auckland artists Caoimhe Macfehin (also of Queen Neptune) and Andrew Halford (King Kaiju). 'Tāmaki 5000' revolves around driving kick, bass loops and a deep, bubbling electronic drive, exploring the Auckland expanse and "all the energy that flows both into and out of it like a giant hive".

Karl Steven's debut album 'All Of Human Emotion On Microfiche' is out digitally February 2022 via Sunreturn Records.
