Subtropica Showcase

Tuesday 6pm-8pm with CHICA LICORICA


Showcasing the abundance of emerging producer talent from Latin America and beyond, Chica is excited to bring you her latest discoveries from around the globe and any back stories that can be found.

Creating her own event series Subtropica Productions since 2013, Chica has aimed to build a platform for tropical music in NZ by collaborating with many local and international talents to bring unique and immersive event productions to NZ festivals and venues.

Tune in to find out what’s cooking on the tropical radar, including interviews, new releases and special event announcements. Starting out as a radio DJ for Melbourne’s PBS FM in 2007 with weekly ‘Beat Carnival’, Licorica has continued to host global bass shows on Radio Ponsonby’s ‘Ladies Who Lunch’, Waiheke Radios ‘Planeta Loca’ and now Base FM.

Producing tropical events has meant being able to play alongside Baile Funk pioneer and Man Recordings label legend Daniel Haaksman, Melbourne’s Cumbia Cosmonauts, Mad Decent & Redbull academy selection Lewis Cancut, and some of NZ’s best world beats proponents Latinaotearoa, Weird Together, Cumbia Bros and Sorceress to name a few. Chica is stoked to be bringing her tropical jams to BaseFM ears.
