Would the real Aotearoa reggae please stand up! w Undercover

Exclusive biz from the land of the long white (ganja) cloud - New Zealand!
Aaah little did you know we have a good little underground scene down here that goes pretty hard. I think the beauty with being so far attached from the rest of the world is we stand apart from all the 'scenes' and we can stand back and just pick and choose styles we dig. Influences down here originally stem from good old Bob plus a good dose of foundation reggae, but I would say nowadays we all love a likkie bit of hip hop in our reggae.
In this mix we have a few of my dubplates and either NZ productions, NZ vocals or both!
Players on the New Zealand scene production wise include Tiopira and Simon from High Stakes who produced a big number one tune on the Jamaican dancehall charts for Popcaan (the big time!), Messenjah at Reality Chant produces the baddest JA/Euro influenced roots riddims, Iron Will from Riddim Central always bangs down a big riddim as well as being a roots man, Art Offishall from Newtown Sound who produces big hip hop and digital influenced reggae and Chris from Dub Terminator who drops some of the best reggae dubstep worldwide IMO. 
As for vocalists you have to start at The Mighty Asterix who for years along with stalwarts like Tuffy Culture, DLT etc have been the founding influence of New Zealand reggae. The next generation bring Asterix's son Israel Starr to the stage who I have the pleasure of jamming with and he always blows me away with his vocal range - from Slim Smith melodies to Johnny Osbourne singjay styles to ragga muffin Buju gruffness! MC Arme is another star who grew up singing gospel in his church and has now turned his talents to vicing big tunes with my crew the Sandy Bay Social Club, just check that version of Come Around - Lord a Mercy! Silva MC is another local talent who just tears shit up in the dance and reps for all the sistas worldwide, her new ep/album is dropping soon so be sure to google it! DJ Grassroots is a multi-talented sound-man whose flow from sweet to gruff voice sounds wicked in the dance and over his own productions! Chilean import Jah Red Lion has recently hit out shores and made big waves teaming up with Riddim central and recently Dub Terminator! Then there is Ras Stone  who I think sits atop of most NZ mc's at the moment, his voice is so crisp and clear and he shines on everything from foundation, roots, steppers, dubstep and to his chargrin - dancehall! Which brings us to the dancehall scene where we have the Yung Shottaz repping hard in a group styley and recently Max and Raiza teaming up to create Caged Lion.

Gappy Ranks - Put The Stereo On (Sandy Bay Dubplate)
Israel Starr - Foundation (Newtown Sound)
Mighty Asterix - Dub Murderer (Undercover Dubplate)
Mighty Asterix - Blood of the Saints
Mighty Asterix - Yardwise Stylee (Niceup Dubplate)
Natty King - Fyah Bed (Reality Chant)

DJ Grassroots - Fatty boom (Dub Terminator Remix)

Footnote 1. There is a Maori/Pacific BBQ reggae scene that is pretty huge in NZ (Katchafire, Unity Pacific etc) which I will do a post on very soon, but this is the real shit right here!!!

Footnote 2. NZ Artists - This post is trying to rep you to the world! I'm also pretty sure all of these tunes were free promos but if you are not cool with your track on here, just holla!

Re ups!
