Mark Pirie's hip-hop article published

Friday, January 13, 2017 by Mark Pirie

The Summer 2016 issue of Phantom Billsticker's Cafe Reader includes my article on hip-hop with a focus on Aotearoa homegrown hip-hop.

The article is the start of a series of essays I am writing for a longer memoir or book of autobiographical essays.

This essay focuses on my days as dee-jay at Radio Active in Wellington during my student years at Victoria University of Wellington 1993-1995.

It ranges over Aotearoa hip-hop and offers a potted history of its development in New Zealand.

I am very pleased to have my article published in a well-designed/edited and well-read production, which offers historical insights into the New Zealand music scene.

Phantom Billstickers do a great job getting the word out to the streets.
