New Zealand Artist: Beatrootz
Beatrootz have been together for over 4 years and have a strong live performance background. Their beats and melodies are created and produced by Tana Tupai and group member Avina Kelekolio, with a sound that is Commercial, radio friendly, and as they like to call itů Hip Hop Eclectic.
Beatrootz have received two NZ on Air (NZOA) 'New Recording Artist' grants, an NZOA 'Video' grant, won the '2004 Coke Launchpad' competition with the song 'No DJz', and charted in the NZ Top 20. Subsequently, the follow up single 'You Know' received NZ On Air video funding, and in turn the video was a finalist in the 2006 Juice TV Music Video Awards for the most prized category 'Video of the Year'. This nomination was alongside Che Fu, Steriogram and a few other NZ heavyweights. The next track to hit the airwaves was "Otherside" released in 2008, with their own DIY music video. The Beatrootz have recently signed a joint venture with Dawnraid by where they will be helping them with the release of their debut album. The album has a mixture of elements ranging from club hits, easy Listening and soulful R&B.
Beatrootz first debuted in the Official New Zealand Top 40 Singles on 6 June 2005 with the song No DJz. There is one entry by Beatrootz in the charts.
