Wednesday 10pm – midnight: Alternating weekly: Eyes Down Bass Up with Ms. Curious / Omni Potent with LUCA
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!
Along with DJ’ing, mixing and recording for Omni Potent, LUCA has made quite a name for himself spinning the decks for rappers JessB, Raiza Biza and Eno X Dirty. He’s also played solo at a number of live events and radio in New Zealand.
Predominately mixing Trap, Grime and all your classic Hip-Hop anthems, expect the Omni Potent show to give you that midweek boost.
Hear LUCA as well as guest appearances from his extended Omni crew every alternate Wednesday at 10pm.
