Rocking on the wake of New Zealands' pinnacle summer month is the release of #BaseFMHighseas Boat Party Highlights Video. Let's face it, there's something about going on a boat party that leaves you hyped and dancing like a crazy person with a huge grin slapped across your face. Maybe it's the sun, the people, the flow of crispy cold beverages, or perhaps it's just the beats. What ever it is, boat parties are the bomb.
It's been a good start to the year for Base FM, with two solid Boat Parties sitting comfortably under their belt, and much like a good feed, the effects are digesting nicely.'The Boat Parties were such a new and exciting project for us. To work with international artists, labels, promoters and an all-new "floating' venue - it's inspiring. I still can't help but smile from ear to ear, just thinking about it - definitely a next level' concept and production for Base FM. Not just another club show that blurs into the next but something so special that everyone on that boat will remember for the rest of their lives"" -Jazz Ziedan (Base FM Managing Director)
Hosting international talent offered guests a strong point of difference to other events. So teaming up with Sam Dutch from Grindin (Aust. Touring & Management Agency) to bring a dose of world-class underground beats to Auckland."Big shout outs to Base FM who ended the DJ House Shoes and Eric Lau Australasian tours the right way. Was great to see Auckland in a different way, and give the artists an opportunity to perform outside of their usual club environments in front of a musically intelligent crowd - It was an experience" - Sam Dutch (Grindin)
The musical line up featured; Eric Lau (UK), Lo Key, Miso Shiru & B.Haru on the 8th of February, and DJ House Shoes (LA), Junior, Dylan Cand Milo B on the 22nd of February. Both events hosted and toasted by Beau Jeffries.
Base FM made sure their international guests made the most of their stay and arranged a couple of cool initiatives leaving a lasting impression among New Zealand fans.
(1) Base FM joined forces with Red Bull Studios bringing together Eric Lau and Team Dynamite for an exclusive collaboration. The #SoundSelect session resulted in the track "One Up'. Listen HERE.
(2) The good folks over at SERATO have uploaded Base FM's live recording of HOUSE SHOES DJ set from Boat Party No.2. Check out it on their Mixcloud page HERE
