Exclusive performance by


(aka Sam Hansen) who is one of today’s most talked about artist in Aotearoa hip-hop. His fluid flow has drawn comparisons to legends like Jay-Z and Notorious BIG but, don’t get it twisted, his brand of hip-hop is distinctly Aotearoa. Hailing from Palmerston North, PNC first gained underground notoriety with his unofficial single Day In The Life that topped the bFM charts. He followed that with appearances on various tracks from P-Money’s Magic City album. His refreshing style caught the attention of NZ music’s elite and earned him a contract with Dirty Records.

He is currently hard at work performing around NZ and putting the finishing touches on his third studio LP. The first single, Let Your Lover Know, is a genre-bending collaboration featuring The Checks that is sure to become an instant hit with New Zealand audiences across the musical spectrum.

Resident DJs


Sir-Vere is a hip hop pioneer. He has always been at the forefront of the movement, learning the secrets and tricks of people like Grandmaster Flash, Jam Master Jay and DJ Premier from their records, accumulating knowledge of what makes a good and popular sound.

Sir-Vere's journey has now seen him as the host of the Major Flavour on national radio station Mai FM. He has also become a TV personality in his own right as the host of the Holla Hour on C4. What is important about all these media appearances is the promotion Sir-Vere gave to hip hop in general and in particular to local acts, presenting them in conjunction with international acts showed that Aotearoa had its own hip hop voice, different from America but just as vital and interesting. As well as his TV and numerous DJing commitments, nowadays you'll find Sir-Vere at his College Hill office in Auckland as the editor of NZ's dedicated hip hop magazine, Back2Basics. His hugely successful Major Flavours compilations are now in their seventh instalment in New Zealand, with 5 releases in Australia.

Joined together over the last couple of years to make a huge impact in the local clubbing scene, from bringing you Swagger & Next Level which are two of New Zealand's hottest clubbing weekly events and now present "Radio Swag" mix show which airs every Saturday night on Mai Fm 88.6, these two have been putting in work together across the board, as-well as working hard on their solo projects.

With resident MC


In a degenerating world of hip hop driven by sex, guns and bling, one who chooses the name Ethical has a few stereotypes to erase and a great many to live up to. Described as “honest”, “real”, “straight up”, Ash Hughes – Ethical - chose this MC name to reflect his personality and the beliefs and values he holds dear. An Oddball, he has that group’s inherent “distinctive” status, and a cheek that - with a penchant for speaking the sometimes offensive truth - can land him in trouble. It makes his talent and focus that much more important. He really is the label’s best kept secret.

Who better than this?

Live camera crew (Snap Star) will be there to catch Memorable moments.

Hot drink specials (all night).

Complimentary snacks.

The only night a week you can come into Code for an exclusive lineup of hip hop & RnB whereas every other club plays hip hop & RnB every other night.

Dress to impress - boyz rock your flyest caps and you illest kicks but don't leave your house without your collard shirt, that's right, we stepping it up and bringing back style...
