Sundays 6pm-8pm with EL PASKO on fortnight rotation with LANVIN MOGUL
El Pasko originally hails from Christchurch, where he had a residency spot at Concrete Club and held down turntable duties at the dolla mix hip hop show on RDU. After that, moved up to Wellington and played hot spots like Good Luck, Havana and at numerous gigs in the local hip hop/future beat scene. Currently residing in Auckland and proud to bring you Beats on Rye. Beats on Rye is as the name suggests mainly about the beats. From classic to new work from dope producers all over the globe. A perfect way to wind down or wind up your Sunday.
Pat Brennan aka Lanvin Mogul cut his teeth at the mighty VBC whilst racking up student debt at Victoria University in Wellington. He held down a show during his final year at University playing an eclectic mix of absolutely bloody anything – they were very formative years for the young Taranaki boy and some that would see his passion for music production and selection flourish. During this time he began to produce music as a hobby whilst playing in various bands from Max and the Wild Things to First Floor Riot. Following a brief stint overseas Pat returned to Auckland to attend MAINZ and study under the world class tutelage of DJs Recloose, Phillipa and CXL. This quickly opened his eyes to the industry and provided him with unmatched opportunities such as producing the Hit It & Quit It radio show and holding down the Radio Ponsonby Friday Drive until it’s eventual closure.
After returning from some years in Europe Pat has rekindled his love for the airwaves on Base Fm through The Jacuzzi Comedown – a fortnightly, lo-fi exploration of dusty dancefloors and broken house. Drawing inspiration from his roots in experimental hip-hop and the early beats scene, Pat’s current sound is one born of the European Sunday afternoon outdoor session; of the dark, quirky, red-light radio; as much of the lo-fi, analogue, dancefloor classics as of the genre-bending, house stylings of artists such as Phil Gerus, Frits Wentink and Black Loops. With a few fanciful nods to 80’s synths, comical nostalgia and quality smack talk the show is an all-encompassing tour-de-force of where dance, and more specifically house has been, is, and most importantly will continue to go.
