THE VIBE BAR :: JULIEN DYNE + LADI6 :: 23/04/2010

We are pleased to present this double bill of South Pacifican soul.

First up is Julien Dyne, perhaps best known for his work as the drummer for Opensouls and Tyra and the Tornadoes, plus his work with the likes of Verse Two, Nathan Haines, Fat Freddy’s Drop and Ladi6. Since his selection for the Red Bull Music Academy in Rome in 2004, Julien has been working with international artists and forging his own unique sound as a producer, resulting in the “Pins & Digits” album, which was released this year by European label BBE as well as by Japanese outfit Wonderful Noise. You can check tracks from that at

Ladi6 has spent the last ten years or more touring with and backing up NZ artists like Fat Freddy’s Drop, Shapeshifter and Scribe, recording killer tunes as Sheelaroc and under her own name, plus providing vocal assistance to classic cuts by Kiwi artists such as 50 Hz and Shapeshifter, as well as international acts like Sepalot and Freddie Krueger. Last year saw the release of her debut album ”Time Is Not Much”, which claimed the Best Urban/Hip Hop Album title at the New Zealand Music Awards, the one award she “wanted the most”.

There are no advance sales for this show but it will be £5 on the door.
