Born a Kiwi but raised in the UK. Brought up on a sultry diet of John Peel, Motown, New Wave, Ska and Soul. Collecting tunes and spinning since the heady housey days of 1988. Wide taste for all things discerning – from Deep Disco basslines, Afrobeat, Acid Soul and Bassy-Junglist business.
Got a show on BaseFM after moving to Auckland in 2007 and the 'Smashey&NiceyShow' has now been keeping things interesting every Saturday afternoon since 2011. With my co-host AverageWhiteDJ we try to keep things varied and we are regularly joined by a whole host of like-minded DJs, as well as the usual crew who turn up simply to hang out for a couple of hours.
I don't tend to upload every show we do, but please enjoy the ones posted here from the archives. It's all pretty much about the sharing of ideas and tunes for us, so get in touch and let us know what you think.
