2009 has been a great year for Christchurch native Fil Alexander, signing to electro giant, Miles Dyson’s Plasmapool Records, then his first release “New York Shit” getting a rave review on trackitdown.net and making #3 on Alex Reliic (Real Legacy) Trackitdown Top 10 for April 2009. Plus his track “Smashbox”, written with Auckland DJ Ali Storm, has been championed by NZ’s Greg Churchill, receiving huge airplay on GeorgeFM. Music has always been a big part of Fil’s life, playing in rock, acid jazz and funk bands through his teens and early twenties, until he swapped it all for dance music when he bought his first decks while living in South Korea eight years ago. These days you can catch Fil’s in your face electro sets with plenty of dirty grooves, big basslines and huge guitars all over the country as he is fast becoming NZ’s electro hot property.
Trackitdown review of ‘New York Shit’
PLASMAPOOL ANTHEM! Just one of three incredible new electro anthems from TID's favourite label. The amazing rap vocal on this is pure rave and will be a monster hit in dirty electro clubs all over the planet. Loads of zapping laser sounds and bumpy beats churn our ears inside out. BIG!

Playing a number of different genres, Samari thrives on making people go banana’s on the floor and getting his personality across to the crowd.
His sets have often created frenzied crowds rushing the DJ booth, although Samari is also known for his marathon 5 hour sets.
Depending on what he’s booked for, Samari specializes in two main directions of sound, you’ll hear sets reminiscent of Boys Noize or Mr. Oizo, playing Baltimore, future funk and electro.
Or European techno, more in tune with influential artists such as Luke Slater or Adam Beyer. Driving, building, melodic with references to Detroit, the UK and the acid house scene.
“I guess I look to music and art to transfer ideas to people, I’m not really interested in playing the latest 20 big hits, I want to show people what’s next, where things might be heading – I see music as a way to convey messages to the crowd and when I’ve done well people leave with something new.”
This Artist is quickly becoming a unique and respected DJ, Artist, Producer and Designer on both sides of the Tasman. His DJ sets have a unique ability to communicate to a broad audience with flare, style and energy in the mix. Expect great things from his performances and future productions.
