The inaugural Māngere Love ’48 Hour Music Production Challenge’ is loosely based as an audio equivalent of the 48 hour film festival, in which participants are given 48 hours to create a track as opposed to a short film from scratch.

The increased affordability and easier access to decent music recording equipment over recent years has meant that a large number of local artists these days are also engineering and self-producing their music at home or in mobile setups as opposed to the traditional, larger, established recording studios.

One key aim of this 48 Hour production challenge is to provide an exciting, inspiring and collaborative environment in which these artists/producers can have access to high end live session musicians and instrumentalists that they may not usually have the opportunity to work with.

About Māngere Love:
Māngere Love is an annual event during the NZ Music month of May in which local emerging talent have the opportunity to perform alongside established artists in front of their local community.

It began as a partnership with the Māngere Town Centre and RAN Events in response to the lack of live music performance opportunities in this thriving and talented community.

Since 2009, this homegrown event has been held on the humble Māngere Town Centre stage, and has continued to provide opportunities for local emerging talent to share the stage alongside established artists such as Aaradhna, Annie Crummer, Betty-Anne Monga, Charlie Pome’e (of Three Houses Down), Emma Paki, TJ Taotua and Swiss.

Over the past 9 years, it has become a signature event within the local music community.

In 2017 the concert was moved outdoors to the Town Centre courtyard, and in addition to the concert itself, and with the support of the Māngere Arts Centre, added a free music industry workshop event – “Māngere Love: From Lyric Page to the Stage”

Identifying five critical areas of the current music industry hustle (curated by local award winning Music & Sound Producer Anonymouz), it was a rare opportunity for local artists and audiences alike to hear from, and interact directly with, some of the very best talent in their respective areas of the industry, with proven and practical tips and advice being delivered in a relaxed, informal and inspiring setting.
