TEAM DYNAMITE ‘Tonight’s Ego’
TONIGHT’S EGO vs TROPICOLA are the brand new tracks from Auckland’s Team Dynamite. The double drop is the first in an on-going single series to play out in 2015 and is accompanied by an exclusive Haz Beats remix of last year’s standout single “Coconut Lime”, feat. Che Fu from their debut album Shepard’s Delight.
Team Dynamite‘s laid-back, jazz influenced style has invited comparisons to A Tribe Called Quest, Outkast and De La Soul, albeit with a distinctively NZ Flavour. Observations via experiences of living and breathing in Auckland City, Team Dynamite navigate easily between social commentary, quirky metaphors and retrospect.
Formed in 2009, Team Dynamite released a mixtape (The Demo Tape – 2010) and Shepherd’s Delight (2014), their first full-length album, the album and standout single ‘Coconut Lime’ feat Che Fu are nominated for 4 awards at this years Vodafone Pacific Music Awards, with Shepards Delight gaining finalist spots for Niu FM Best Pacific Urban Artist and Recorded Music NZ Best Pacific Music Album and ‘Coconut Lime’ up for APRA Best Pacific Song and NZ On Air Best Pacific Music Video.
Tonight’s Ego vs Tropicola will be launched on June 5th at Whammy! Bar K’Road, where Team D take over the underground to launch their brand new tunes. A self funded, produced, shot and edited video for Tonight’s Ego is in the works, stay tuned!
