It’s a freezing Friday night in Auckland City and I’m on Ponsonby Road waiting to meet Eden and Manu aka ENO x DIRTY, Central AK’s latest addition to the thriving New Zealand music scene. Their EP, Easter Eggs & Good Sportsmanship was released last month to resounding, positive feedback. Noisey premiered it stating that the sound was something ‘both familiar and unique.’

LISTEN: MNDSGN – YAWN ZEN

mndsgn

MNDSGN is a Los Angeles based Filipino/American producer on the very eclectic Stones Throw roster. While his work has a lot of the dreamy elements which have become synonymous with living and creating in LA, he delves a little deeper into darkness than many of his peers. On top of this, there is a decidedly bouncy sway to much of his output. Yawn Zen will wake you up, then rock you back into a dreamy slumber.

Very gooey.

LISTEN: SHANTAN WANTAN ICHIBAN – OUTKAST MIX


With a career spanning two decades, Outkast are stalwarts of the rap game. (I personally have trouble trusting people who don’t listen to them.) As pioneers within hip hop, they championed some of the very first instances of genre fusion, adopting elements of G-funk (first popularised in the West) and mixing that with gritty Southern attitude. If the Pixies are the most influential rock band in the world, Outkast are the reason your favourite rapper picked up a pen. Their impact is immeasurable, and their style ubiquitous. With countless hits across 6 albums, the resume is thick. My homie Shantan from Sydney made this dope mix last year featuring the bangers, as well as some of the lesser-known tracks and verses.

Start your weekend right.
