Ep. 276 w/ Kaishandao and ajhoneysuckle.
Kaishandao is a Pōneke-born, Chengdu-based musician and producer, who is behind the online portal and touring company Kiwese. A few months ago, she self-released the Homeland EP, an enigmatic debut that seems to wed hypnagogic memories to the pulse, structure and dynamics of dance music. She shares a mix made during an unexpected two-week hotel quarantine, which shifts from slowburning melancholy to meditative rhythms and emotional bops.
To close, we hear from ajhoneysuckle, a Tainui/Samoan deejay based in Ōtautahi. Her sets centre nostalgic melodies, rhythmic breaks, and big basslines, and have quickly seen her get booked for some of the bigger parties across Aotearoa. Tonight, she shares a mix that focuses on the darker elements of Drill, Grime, Dub, and Hip-hop before transitioning into high energy UK-inflected sounds.
