New Streaming To Focus On NZ

A new streaming service launched May 4 in New Zealand will focus on New Zealand music.

Called All Tracks, it is the initiative of the Government-run NZ On Air, which provides content and diversity in radio, television and digital.

“It makes it easy for people to find NZ music and enjoy it,” it said. The site is at and available through platforms including YouTube, Spotify or Soundcloud.

The music is divided into eight categories – folk and country, dance and electronic, alt and indie, hip-hop and R&B, pop, reggae and roots, and rock and metal. These are curated by experts in their fields, including such radio presenters and musicians as reggae bands Black Seeds and Fly My Pretties member Barnaby Weir, club DJs Dan Aux and DJ Machoo, and pop singer Jamie McDell.
