Thursday 10am - Midday with Lo Key
Lo Key aka Mike Haru is one of the most experienced radio presenters/DJs on Base FM, with a long history behind the turntables on both radio & various clubs around Auckland. Although his DJ career began in the golden era of 90s hiphop & R&B, Lo Key isn’t someone who is stuck in the past. Dropping $$s at Conch Records & Real Groovy on a weekly bases, he continues his life-long search for the smoothest, freshest, most soulful beats from all corners of the globe. From Badu to Mitsu; Nicolay to Marvin Gaye; Dwele to Dj Day; Low Maintenance features the choicest selections of Neo-soul, funk and instrumental beats
To the people that know Lo Key personally, they’ll be all too familiar with his unique catch phrases. Here’s a collection of his most trademark quotes:
- “Hey Dawg is that on vinyl?” when another Dj drops a tune he’s feelin’
- “Look at you” when he’s duly impressed with an individual
- “Not For beginners” when dealing with music from the worlds master craftmen
- “INTERNATIONAL” when directed at an individual is high praise indeed coming from the one like Lo Key.
These quotes are aften heard in a number of combinations. (Look at you Dawg… International!)
