Wednesday 10am-Midday with DJ Tido

Dj Tido

Kurt aka Dj Tido, has been involved in music since he was knee high to a Weta. Born and raised in the Garden City, Kurt has been recording and performing as a percussionist with various bands from his home town and touring around Australasia since the late 90’s. He has performed with a variety of musicians and producers some of which include: Hollie Smith, Solaa, Ladi 6, Shapshifter, Nathan Haines, Scribe, The Shocking Pinks, Oval Office, P Bass Expressway, and Departure Lounge.

Along with life as a musician Kurt has been collecting music since his youth, amassing an extensive vinyl collection. A natural conclusion was to play these records out in public which he has been doing as a Dj for over 12 years. He has spun records around New Zealand and Australia as well as performances in the USA, Canada, UK and West Africa.

He hosted the long running Supafly funk show on RDU in Canterbury for over a decade and has spent time behind the turntables in support of some great artists, such as : Mr Scruff, Lee Perry, The Mad Professor, Jazzanova, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Recloose, Opensouls, Electric Wire Hustle, Manuel Bundy, Downtown Brown and Frank Booker among others.

After a recent world trip in which he spent time studying percussion and attending music festivals in Brazil, Cuba, USA and West Africa, Kurt has moved to Auckland and is looking forward to new adventures in our countries biggest musical melting pot.

You can also catch him spinning the platters that matter around Auckland on weekends. Selecting soul filled music spanning Jazz, Funk, Latin, Afrobeat, Reggae and Hiphop.

Join Dj Tido on the Actual Proof Radio Show every Wednesday from 10am – Noon.
