MC Tiki (Tiki Taane)

Tiki Taane is a multi-platinum award winning artist and considered a pioneer in the New Zealand music scene with a career spanning 20 years. Rising to prominence as a member of leading New Zealand band Salmonella Dub, Tiki progressed from sound engineer to fully fledged front man and penned some of the bands biggest hits including “Love Your Ways” and “For the Love of It” amongst others.

Since embarking on his solo artist career in January 2007, Tiki has gone from strength to strength, becoming one of New Zealand’s most popular and diverse award-winning artists renowned as much for his powerful live performances as he is for his anthems.

Doubling as an audio engineer for top drum n bass groundbreakers Shapeshifter, Tiki is also renowned as a remix producer and gifted performance MC who has a solid reputation for boosting shows, musical works and recordings worldwide.

In November 07, he released his debut LP "Past Present Future" through his own label Dirty Dub which achieved double platinum sales and picked up a swag of awards. His beautiful acoustic love ballad “Always On My Mind” rose to No. 1 and broke two all-time NZ records - it sat in the charts for a record 54 weeks and was also the first-ever digital single to achieve platinum sales.

In July 09, Tiki released his remix album “FLUX” and in March 2011 Tiki pushed himself further than ever before as both a vocalist and a producer with his brand new album ‘In the World Of Light’ which rose immediately to number 1 in the charts.

Although affectionately known as ‘King of the Dubs’ in NZ, Tiki’s musical influences and appeal are broad, traversing from dubstep, traditional style reggae, old school drum and bass and hip-hop, to more contemporary pop/rock sensibilities. ‘In the World of Light’ draws on all of these influences.

In 2011, Tiki's collaboration with dubstep king Optimus Gryme "My Lion" was reworked as soundtrack for the Rugby World Cup Opening Ceremony, viewed by millions worldwide.
