The New Loungehead

This seminal band mashed up triphop, acid jazz and jungle and burst onto Auckland's urban club scene in the late 1990s. They recorded only one influential, award-winning album for the Deepgrooves label and were revered nationally for their extended instrumental sets, which featured two drum kits, DJs and live delay effects. Several of the group members (Godfrey De Grut, Chip Matthews, Dan Sperber, Matthias Sudholter, Isaac Tucker) have enjoyed further success in music in New Zealand and the UK.
