The musicians make their way to The Grand in Wellington, Roots Bar in Tākaka on June 10 with support from Yakka, and Hide Club in Christchurch on June 16 along with Noize Kontrol. The tour was announced by dubstep production duo TRUTH’s (Tristan Roake and Andre Fernandez) record label Deep Dark & Dangerous in May 2023. They declared, “We’re extremely excited to announce a run of New Zealand shows with 2 of our absolute favorite NZ producers and DJs, the incomparable @paigejulia.music and @ashez, one of the hottest producing talents in Aotearoa right now!”
Paige Julia, the kiwi drum & bass, techno, breakbeat, dubstep heavyweight and winner of Best Electronic Artist at the 2021 Aotearoa Music Awards, recently released her four-track EP Quasar via Deep Dark & Dangerous Records.
Rounding the headlining artists is Auckland-based bass music producer Max Ashworth aka ASHEZ. He has dominated gigs, concerts, and festivals in New Zealand and Australia, with a maiden tour of Canada on the horizon. About the upcoming tour, ASHEZ noted via Instagram, “Tristan, Paige and I have been bumping into each other all summer at festivals and shows all over NZ and Australia. So when Tristan came to us with the idea of doing a New Zealand tour this winter it just made so much sense.”
