HIGH DRIVE returns to The Bird for another outdoor tropical dance party touching down on Dancehall, Afrobeats, Reggaeton and MUCH more.
half.queen is a DJ/ filmmaker/creatrix coming out of Auckland, Aotearoa, with Fijian and Paheka blood-lines. Shaki’s eclectic background has influenced a confluence of sound that is ever-evolving, musically speaking into a local and global sense of diaspora.
Although she is genre-less in taste and seamlessly adapts to any scene, Shaki is a self-proclaimed ‘Twerkhall’ DJ, specializing in dancehall/bashment/hip-hop sounds sprinkled with whatever the vibe calls for. With her close collaborator JessB, they launched their party FILTH in Nov, centred around the QPOC club experience.
Shaki also hosts a weekly radio slot on KFM with fellow Auckland icon DJ Zeki called H2HO Radio, 2 hours of showcasing fresh releases from all genres in beautiful mixes.
HALFQUEEN is part of your local wahine-gang whose DJ sets are just as unapologetic and empowered as her presence in every space.
Support from ASLAN. $5 entry from 5pm
