Exhaustively researched and produced by the titanic team of DJ Sir-Vere aka Phil Bell and writer / DJ Martyn Pepperell, new podcast Aotearoa Hip Hop: The Music, The People, The History shines the spotlight on those groundbreaking rappers, producers, DJs and more who laid the foundations for NZ's thriving hip hop culture. Sourced from more than 100 interviews and made with support from NZ On Air, the first season dropped on Friday covering a crucial expanse of local music history over six episodes. From the electrifying impact of Sugarhill Gang's 'Rappers Delight', breakdancing and graffiti upon an emerging generation of artists in the early eighties, right up to Che Fu's departure from Supergroove in the mid-nineties to chart his own course, Aotearoa Hip Hop will likely be a revelation even to those who reckon they know a thing or two about NZ hip hop.
