Team Dynamite

Bio

Team Dynamite formed in the late 2000's after aspiring teenage MCs Lucky Lance and Tony Teez decided to take hip hop beyond their weekend freestyle sessions at a local park. An introduction to producer Haz Beats provided the beats they were missing, and suddenly Team Dynamite was a legitimate group, building a reputation for dance-floor friendly hip hop and becoming mainstays of the Young Gifted & Broke collective.

The group released The Demo Tape in 2010, Shepherds Delight in 2014 and Never Again EP in 2015. They’ve collaborated with a who’s who of New Zealand music including Che Fu, @peace, Laughton Kora and Bailey Wiley. They dominated the 2015 Vodafone Pacific Music Awards with no less than four nominations, going on to win best video for Coconut Lime from Shepherds Delight. Their high energy live show saw the group play major festivals including Homegrown and Rhythm & Vines, and be invited to support Ladi6 on a nationwide tour, as well as supporting international acts - sharing the bill with DJ Premier and Pete Rock was a highlight.

Team Dynamite went quiet for the last few years, with just a couple of singles to keep fans intrigued. They’ve focused on other projects - music and otherwise. Tony is a youth worker, Lance has a clothing brand and Haz continues to make beats and produce music, notably for Avantdale Bowling Club and Miloux, as well as touring with the re-formed Home Brew.

Finally, Team Dynamite are back, with their first full length album since Shepherds Delight, to be released later this year on Years Gone By Records.

New Video for Team Dynamite
Posted: Wed Jul 23, 2014 12:29 pm
Auckland hip-hop collective TEAM DYNAMITE shot their NZ On Air funded video for Coconut Lime feat. Che Fu over the weekend with film director Eddy Fifield.

"The boys wanted a Kung Fu themed music video, and so I decided we might as well go all out and make a legit Kung Fu film with fights, costumes, sets, bad dubbing, and a narrative ripped straight from the classic Kung Fu films of the late 70's and early 80's. This turned out to be a pretty ambitious project, but with a great crew of hard working and talented people, and great energy and commitment from the band, we ended up with something pretty spectacular." - Eddy

The video will be released late July, 2014 before heading out on a nationwide tour with Ladi6 in August.
