Julien Dyne (live)

Best known for his solo output on Soundway Records (UK ), BBE records (worldwide) and Wonderful Noise (Japan), he also performs and records with Ladi 6, Avantdale Bowling Club, The Circling Sun, Some Other Planets, New Farben and has recorded with Opensouls, Fat Freddys Drop, @peace, Tom Scott, Lord Echo, Eru Dangerspiel, Christoph El Truento, James Duncan, She's So Rad, Nathan Haines and many others.

Julien's latest album on Soundway Records, MODES, continues the forward-thinking percussive jazz and afro-inspired house music soundscapes explored on Dyne's recent album Teal, which garnered acclaim from peers and fans alike - including Late Night Tales, Toddla T, Ransom Note, and BBC6 Music presenters (Mary Anne Hobbs, Tom Ravenscroft, Huey Morgan, Jon Hillcock).

His trademark slick production can be relied upon once more, as well as the music's insistent rhythmic drive and intensity.

MODES employs some of New Zealand's most well-known and iconic vocalists, in addition to many new rising stars. Frequent collaborators Lord Echo, Ladi 6 and Mara TK (Electric Wire Hustle) return, alongside soul legends Dallas Tamaira aka Joe Dukie (Fat Freddys Drop), Che Fu and Troy Kingi.
