Ep. 250 with Roger Perry
It's time for the sixth annual NZ music special on FPR. This time, we hand over the keys to the legendary Roger Perry.
Roger Perry has been fighting the good fight for nearly 40 years. He started DJing in 1984 at the Venue, an all ages club run by Russ Le Roq (Russell Crowe). From there, he went on to run Asylum, where New Zealand audiences were first introduced to house music. He hosted NZ's first dance music radio show, Asylum FM on bFM. He has also made some masterful music as Reactor Music, Kingsland Housing Project, and Toolbox. His one-take mix for us tonight is a canvassing of house music in Aotearoa, from peerless classics to killer cuts from the new school.
