Michael Julian is a man of many talents! Running a bar of Astrolabes size would be enough for most people but you’ll also regularly find him spinning the wheels in the garden bar! 

Here’s 5 kiwi artists floating his boat right now.

My Top 5

  1. Pacific Heights. Lock in the 27th of this month as the long awaited highly anticipated 5th album The Stillness from Shapeshifter founding member Devin Abrams aka DJ Reno drops. It's on point!

  2. Lord Echo - an all star kiwi group helmed by Mikey Fabulous of Black Seeds fame. Head nodding afrobeat and dubbed out disco. New album on the horizon.  

  3. Unknown Mortal Orchestra . rubbing shoulders with the big names at Cochella has gotta get you some kudos

  4. Doprah - Christchurch trip hop up and comers, drawing comparison to Massive Attack. New LP Wasting's just come out on wax 

  5. Estere - reping NZ touring Africa at the mo. Her female beat making presence in as mesmerising as her quirky stage presence.
