BaseFM: Digital liberators
My crew at BaseFM are getting the word out about digital liberation - watch the video above and learn a bit about the station's history. They've also cooked up a cool 2-CD set of great NZ tunes for NZ Music Month....
"Turn it Up is out now! Brought to you by NZ On Air, this free double CD brings together the artists that have showcased on ‘Turn It Up!’ (on-air feature) since its launch in July 2012. It unites all tracks in a seamless mix consisting of 36 songs across 2 CDs, sequenced and mixed by Base FM Program Director Dylan C at Auckland’s Red Bull Studios.
Both mixes - Native Tongues & Indigenous Dubs - feature the likes of Scratch 22, Home Brew, Raiza Biza, @Peace, Harbour City Electric, Coco Solid, Oakley Grenell, Israel Starr, Silva MC, Dub Asylum, Benny Tones and so, so much more.
Turn It Up! is a compilation exclusive to Base and is obtained by listening to Base or saying the code word ‘Digital Liberation’ at key outlets around NZ, namely Conch in Auckland City, and RPM in Wellington with more to be announced.
Base FM featured on TV3’s ‘Media3’. You can watch On Demand here (about 20 mins in)
