Copy of April Mix // Big Fat Raro


We’ve been wanting to get Emi to do a mix for a while now and we’re delighted to have her feature as our latest guest!

Emi Pogoni is an artist based in Te Whanganui-a-Tara working in sound, music, design and events. She enjoys creating evocative sound worlds for performance to inhabit, working alongside contemporary choreographers as a composer and as a sound designer/music director for theatre.

Recent projects include Elliptical Fictions (choreographed by Zahra Killeen-Chance, performed by Footnote Dance New Zealand), Orientation (written and directed by Chye-Ling Huang, produced by Proudly Asian Theatre) and Burn Her (with Blake Johnston, written by Sam Brooks). 

Emi also founded Works For Loudspeakers, a quarterly listening party curated to provide a platform for non-performative sound-based composition.

The mix draws on an ongoing interest in the emotive use of affected voice and features two of Emi’s own tracks alongside Aotearoa based artists MeerFanau SpaThomas LambertAmy Jean Barnett and Alexa Casino.

Happy April Fools’!

This month we're excited to feature an electric mix from MESH favourite Big Fat Raro (Tokerau Wilson).

To coincide with the mix, Toki has generously digitised Pyramid 7, which was originally released as a 12” Lathe LP on Epic Sweep Records. Pyramid 7 evokes the same playful and evolving energy of Big Fat Raro live techno sets, but sends you spiralling through layers of beat-less melodic noise. The mix features tracks from artists Toki has collaborated with, including nine piece rap collective Fanau Spa, Coco Solid and Yumgod.

Toki is also known for his distinctive black ink animations under his coconutclouds alias and has more recently worked on Aroha Bridge. His other projects include Te Pō Māori/Pasifika Goth Contemporary Art which he curated as part of the Puaka Matariki Festival and serial comic Death Squad Cyber
