Smoke Notes

I have consistently maintained that the two major (and unique) influences that will take New Zealand to the international music market are the DIY indie aesthetic (whether electronica or more traditional band set ups), pioneered by Flying Nun years back, and this country's rich, varied and vibrant Pacific heritage. This fine compilation courtesy of King Music (New Zealand's greatest and most consistent supporter of the quickly developing urban Pacific sound) represents the second of these, throwing together a healthy brew covering both the known (Che Fu, Nesian Mystik, Ill Semantics, Adeaze, Soane, King Kapisi, Scribe and Che's father Tigilau Ness) and promising upcomers (Element X, Pacific Soul, Peta & The Immigrantz, Sara-Jane, TJ Taotua and Tapuarii). While both reggae and hip hop are obvious guiding points, it is the sound of contemporary r&b that is the strongest influence here, incorporating both the sheen of modern US acts with earthy and natural Polynesian elements. Rich and diverse, this collection is ample proof that the sound of Pacifika is quickly developing into a sound that all New Zealanders should be proud of. Recommended (especially if you enjoy the contemporary meeting of r&b and hip hop).
