Iron Will (Riddim Central, AKLD), Art Official & Paradox
NiceUp and Newtown Sound present a night of heavyweight reggae, dancehall, hip hop and fresh NZ productions, with the Riddim Central showcase, featuring Iron Will direct from Auckland City, alongside Art Official and Paradox.
Auckland based Iron Will AKA Willi the Kid, is the founder and driving force behind one of NZs toughest reggae production houses, Riddim Central. Multi talented, Will has come to the forefront of the scene as a promoter, producer, DJ and instrumentalist. With a long history forwarding dancehall and reggae, Will has played bass in The Midnights, run the epic ‘One Foundation’ series of parties, and produced recent material from The Solomonix, Silva Emcee & Jah Red Lion.
A mainstay of the NZ scene, and the man behind Newtown Sound, NiceUp and the celebrated Ghetto Red Hot series of parties and mixes, Art Official is an accomplished selector, turntablist and producer. Always ready to rock the dance, expect nothing but the toughest tunes from this Wellington badman.
Having recently relocated from Auckland to the Capital, Paradox is one of NZs hottest dancehall selectors. He has been part of the Jafa Mafia crew, works with NiceUp, and now spreads his own killa mix of reggae and dancehall on the Radio Active Roots and Culture show and around town.
Don’t miss the chance to check some original Aotearoa reggae, and hear some of the hottest dancehall and hip-hop from the world over!
