The Third Ear with Suno
“No way did I want to be a disc jockey… I only did it because I used to hang out with these people all the time, so I knew what kind of music we liked.” –David Mancuso
Born a Kiwi but raised in the UK, Suno was brought up on a sultry diet of John Peel, Hip-hop and his Mother’s Motown collection. Buying and spinning since the heady-housey days of 1988 – he has a wide taste for all things suitably nod-worthy; from deep disco basslines, afrobeat and assorted bass-driven antics.
Since returning to NZ in 2002 he has continued to follow his (somewhat) expensive passion for good music; with long-running shows on Wellington’s Radio Active; spreading sunshine at the Cuba Street Carnival and setting up Wellington’s long running Sundried summer garden sessions.
Since the move to Auckland in 2007 he headed straight to the BaseFM towers and has more recently been one half of the genre-juggernaut that was the Smashey & Nicey show. He also set up the successful Jam and Pickle events across the country with his long-time cohort AWDJ.
Apart from writing about himself in the third person, he is also a Creative Director and a busy actor on stage and screen… but who isn’t these days?
