Hunua Hustle

Hunua Hustle aka Ben King, has been working towards perfecting the art of DJing for over a decade. He's played in bars, clubs, underground house parties and various festivals throughout Aotearoa.

Ben enjoys nothing more than telling the story through a great track selection and seeing the crowd respond to the energy.

He likes to explore most electronic mediums but is drawn toward Tech,  Progressive and Minimal Deep Tech House, and often crafts is set specifically for the occasion. Most of his inspiration comes from the European underground scene. Often it's not the headliners that surprise you - it's the DJ you've never heard of that shines.

Hape

Looking back it’s now obvious that HAPE was going to naturally progress from being a punter on the dance floor to being behind the decks, such was his appetite and voracity for the music.

With an ever growing collection of records it wasn’t long before he got some 1210’s, delved into learning the craft, honing his skills and playing alongside friends. He was soon a regular on club nights and outdoor party line ups such as Pitch n' Faders, Back on Track, Dirty Laundry and his own High Calibre.

HAPE is a through and through beat merchant with an absolute passion for storming any dance floor you give him. Constantly striving to both push himself and take the audience on a journey through dark vocal prog with lush servings of deep tribal tech and everything in between, it’ll always be infused with his own twist of high energy funk.

Adman

It’s a name that has been synonymous with big tribal prog, lush house and rolling techno amongst the Wellington dance community for the last 20 years.

A true journeyman in the mix, Adman’s love for the craft of djing is apparent every time he steps up to the decks. Having honed his skills over many years, whether through multiple residencies across Wellington's clubland, outdoor festival events, or his own club nights, he has become one of the most versatile djs in the capital today.

Producer, DJ, Sound Engineer, but first and foremost an outright lover of all things musical, Adman skillfully draws on years of musical knowledge and technical knowhow to understand his audience, and to consistently deliver his infectious groove. Once behind the decks, Prog, Tech, Breaks, Electro, Psytrance, and a multitude of other influences and elements all quickly become colours in his wide-ranging artistic palette.

You won't regret doing yourself a favour and stepping onto his dance floor and experiencing the sonic paintings he expertly creates for yourself.
