Tom Scott (Auckland)
Well acquainted to us as a part of Home Brew and @Peace, Tom will be changing it up a bit this time, hitting the decks for a DJ Set. As we know, Tom never disappoints when putting on a live show. If you’ve seen him on the mic, this completes the package and includes a sprinkle of YG&B for your mind.
Raiza Biza (Hamilton)
Hamilton rapper and AmmoNation collective member Raiza Biza is rapidly making a name for himself, releasing quality music time after time including his “Dream Something” EP, and brand new “Summer” EP fittingly as the winter starts to ease in. Raiza has been slaying shows with his contributions to Soundscape in Hamilton and to the @Peace Girl Songs Wellington release party amongst others. Catch him at the height of his powers on May 24.
Diaz Grimm (Hamilton)
In the short time that Diaz has been in the game, he has blown up massively and bringing the house down wherever he lands. With two EP’s under his belt, he’s brought down Rhythm and Vines and BW Campground 2012, opened for Canadian DJ Lunice and PMoney shows this year along with a string of other huge performances. A pusher of the New New Zealand movement and 7Gang, Diaz is one to not be slept on.
Spycc & INF (Auckland)
Spycc and INF are the type of guys that make your “feel good” music. If you’ve heard them separately, you’re in for a real treat with them both on together at Assembly. The Onehunga duo released their Summer Madness EP last year, and is definitely an act not to be missed. Wellington isn’t exactly two minutes away from Auckland, so don’t miss out. It’s your chance to get on with the SWIDT gang if you’re lagging.
Jane Deezy (Hamilton)
Hamilton rapper Jane Deezy is a dreamy addition to Assembly and NZ hip hop. She’s been on a bit of a break from the music scene, but the lady’s back by full force and is not to be missed. Also a part of AmmoNation, Jane Deezy has been putting out exceptional works which include her EP's ‘EPic’ and ‘Based on Actual Events’ EP between 2010 and 2011. Just to remind you she’s back on a rampage, she released a new song “Everything Red” featuring INF that has truly shown us our girl’s back.
Tony Douglas (Hamilton)
Tony makes up the second half of Hamilton underground production duo CTFD, who have left audiences at shows like Rhythm and Vines, Lunice and Netsky begging for more of their live sets. Tony currently has his own EP “Jass Zession” in the works, and he’s going to be throwing a bit of the 7Gang antics at the Welly crowd, you may end up with permanent trap arms after this set. You’ve been warned.
Jay Knight (Wellington)
With two songs produced on the @Peace Girl Songs EP, various collaborations with artists on this very line up like Raiza, Louie Knuxx and INF, Jay has quickly built up some solid street cred for himself, with his “E + M” EP nearly ready and sure to be fire. For this particular occasion, Jay Knight is finally coming out of the basement bedroom to play a live set at Assembly. This 18 year old is out to kill because Timaru doesn’t play around.
