The Peacekeepers Deliver New Single 'Hot Thing' ft. Tiki Taane

13 October 2020 - 0 Comments

The Peacekeepers were born out of mutual love of bass-heavy music, by Sambora (aka Sam Trevethick) P Digsss and Nicky Research (aka Nick Robinson) who are also members of one of New Zealand’s biggest musical exports Shapeshifter. They’ve arrived with their first release of 2020, Hot Thing, featuring Tiki Taane, a heavy-hitting dancefloor number that takes them back to their Jungle roots and to the halcyon days of Rave and Drum & Bass scene of the late 90's.

Nick and Sam produced the beat at Sam’s old studio in Kingsland, '301' the former HQ of Kog Records (the first record company to release a Shapeshifter album). Long-time friends and collaborators Tiki and Sam came together to write the lyrics, an ode to the old school rave scene in New Zealand. The track draws inspiration from the Drum and Bass, Jungle, Hardcore and Techno scene in Christchurch, specifically The Ministry nightclub - a church to the buzzing community that developed there.

'Galaxy Records, Echo Records... These were the spots to score the latest 12” singles from the UK' says Sambora. 'We bought Mickey Finn Jungle mixtapes on cassette that were recorded live at huge underground raves in England. The energy was electric, the MC's were on fire, and you could feel the pressure and ecstasy through the speakers... This is where we heard so many exclusive and fresh dubplates. The mixing and the heat really inspired us and our young scene'.

Tiki Taane brings the heat to the verses and sets the tone of the track before P Digsss takes on the hook to let loose with his searing call to the dancefloor, taking the energy to the next level. 'So my selecta, load up your carbine!' uses the metaphor of a firearm to describe the power and energy of music on the dancefloor at an underground party, lined with stacks of speakers and boiling over with intensity. The final result is a fast-paced, fiery number that is levelled up by its talented vocalists and mixed to perfection thanks to Sambora’s sound engineering.

A huge thank you to NZ On Air for making this happen.

Catch the action live this Saturday 17th October at Hide Club, Christchurch, as The Peacekeepers will be throwing down after their Shapeshifter show to celebrate the release of their new track. Tickets on sale now from Under The Radar.
