Team Dynamite - Shepherds Delight. Album release date: Friday 7th February 2014

Late 2013, Auckland rap crew Team Dynamite released their first full length album Shepherds Delight via their bandcamp - this was a digital only release with a limited preview / download period aimed at their die-hard fans, but after receiving over 1000 downloads in the first week Team Dynamite decided to release the album in a physical format.

Fast forward to Friday 7th February 2014 and Shepherds Delight will be available on CD and from all major digital outlets globally for those that missed out on the initial release. The new release includes a bonus track that was not released on the initial digital run.

The album features guest rappers Lui Silk (Homebrew) @Peace, tonga vaea and Che Fu.

Shepherds Delight follows on from the group's 2010
The Demo Tape EP.

Team Dynamite is Lucky Lance, Tony Tz & Haz' Beats

Team Dynamite's music will make you dance at a funeral. It'll turn John Kirwan into Jason Gun. It's the kind of thing that should come in pill form with a little picture of a dove carved into it. Its music that sounds like it was made for summer. It makes board shorts actually look cool. It makes salt water taste good and played twice a day, it'll make your plants grow up to 3 times faster. Its the kind of music that makes you wanna hug the bus driver because he opened the door for you. It's feel good music.

The two lead lyricists of the group, Tony Tee's and Lucky Lance have a chemistry that sounds like the day Mario met Luigi. Their partnership reminds you a bit of A Tribe Called Quest or Outkast but with a a distinct New Zealand style that's easy to relate to. Hearing them swap verses is like watching a Walter Little pass to Frank Bunce. They're like the Samoan Bill and Tedd. Like a Bert and Ernie duet. Like the perfect double date for Salt N Peppa. Like the bushwackers on ecstasy. Like what Milo and Ottis would sound like if they could flow. Like Lethal Weapon without the mullets. Like Green Eggs and Ham. Or like Boom and Bap. They just go together.

Musically the sound is driven by Auckland's most lovable horsey face, Haz Beats (Home Brew / Young Gifted & Broke). His style sounds something like Minnie Riperton and Mike Tyson's love child. It's smooth but strong at the same time. Its the kind of sound that will bounce perfectly off your garage walls on a Friday night. In the summer, its the music that will make you wanna shake your head to get the water out of your ears. It'll make you feel like there's sand in your speakers. Its so perfectly suited for summer it almost sounds like the high hats were sampled from two cicadas making love.
