We're over the moon to share the first episode of UTR presents Trash Recital Season 2 — starring Troy Kingi and created by Sports Team!

Releasing online fortnightly from today onwards, our 2022 season of Trash Recital features even more stars from throughout Aotearoa's diverse music community, reimagining their songs using objects from Sports Team's expertly curated collection of recycled junk. Viewers can enjoy an even trashier set than last year, a dazzling new claymation opening sequence by Annabel Kean (finalist for the 2022 Outstanding Music Journalism Award), and more outstanding banter throughout the new ten episode series, made with support from NZ On Air.

For each episode of Trash Recital we've invited some of our favourite Aotearoa artists into the UTR studios to perform one of their signature songs, re-created using everyday items selected from Sports Team's stockpile of trash. Trash Recital not only provides a launchpad for stunning reimaginings of recent classic tunes, but also the perfect opportunity for a chinwag with our local musical heroes.

Our first episode stars Silver Scroll winner Troy Kingi (Te Arawa, Ngāpuhi, Te Whānau-ā-Apanui), reinventing his song 'Shake That Skinny Ass' from 2020's The Ghost of Freddie Cesar with trusty "fix it man" The Amazon Forest (Forrest Thorp). Touring his 2021 album Black Sea Golden Ladder with Delaney Davidson nationwide in August, Kingi chatted candidly with Sports Team about his famously ambitious 10 10 10 project (ten albums, ten genres, ten years) while transforming trash into musical treasure.
