Poetik is a fresh talent in the Auckland hip hop scene, but he takes a very retro approach to his music, creating G-funk bangers and selling CDs direct to fans as if the internet hadn’t been invented. Gareth Shute caught up with him to talk about his old-is-new approach and why it’s all part of his desire to represent Samoa to the fullest.

Swiss was born and raised in Wellington. The family decided to make the move over to Australia when older Sibling Sika Manu signed with the Melbourne Storm to play professional Rugby League in the NRL and then moving onto play for the New Zealand Kiwis. After finally settling in Brisbane, Australia. But now he’s back in NZ and has a new Ep in the works
