Wednesday 10pm-Midnight with Ms. Curious
‘Eyes Down Bass Up’ with Ms. Curious alternating weekly with L’amour
Arguably, the biggest advocate of Dubstep in Auckland’s underground dance scene, Ms. Curious’ passion for the scene was set a light in 2006 at what was possibly the most dismal gig on Auckland’s K Road that weekend… An Auckland breaks Promoter had given a then, little known in New Zealand sound called dubstep a go.
The gig flopped – at it’s peak there were 10 people on the dancefloor but Briar McGregor, a local underground radio station Account Manager, was a permanent fixture until the end of one of Jason Howson’s early dubstep set’s. Briar finally left the dancefloor thinking who was that DJ? What was he playing? It was then, stumbling home through the dodgy back streets of Krd, Briar realised her calling and Ms. Curious was born.
Not one to sit on her ass and think about it, Briar enrolled in DJ lessons, talked local electro producer and friend Tim Richards into lending her his Technic 1200’s, spent countless hours wagging work to hang out at Beat Merchants, Real Groovy, and Conch and embarked on a whirlwind tour of London’s biggest dubstep gigs.
Now back after 6 years in London you will hear her playing a much more diverse line up of bass heavy music, but she will always finish up with that Dubstep sound!
L’amour is fairly new to the DJing scene but has taken every opportunity that Base has given her. From DJing at the beautiful Leigh Sawmill Cafe on a sunny afternoon to the late night of the club.
Following the most underground DJ’s and producers to select for you the best Drum and Bass on the scene right now. Pure rolling vibes for your Wednesday night.
Having worked with Drum and Bass DJ’s in London as a vocalist and teaming up with her friend to go back to back on a Numark controller, she is stoked to finally be a part of a community where music is the key to happiness.
