Coinciding with the NZ Music Month “Retro: 70s to 00s” show of local music photographs by Murray Cammick, the photographer will DJ “NZ-Only” vinyl grooves in the Helen Clark Room Friday May 4 from 11am to 3pm at The Ellen Melville Centre.

As a DJ, Murray Cammick is known for hosting 95bFM’s weekly “Land Of The Good Groove” on 1pm Fridays. Cammick’s “NZ-Only” DJ set will not be as funky as usual as it will encompass NZ music from the 1960s to now – including the decades when he was actively taking photos of local music and the decades before and after.

As a vinyl-only DJ, Cammick has more than enough vinyl goodies to get him through a four-hour set. As a teen he was a big fan of local music as seen on the C’Mon pop music TV show and he purchased 45rpm singles or EPs by artists such as Dinah Lee and Larry’s Rebels. In recent years NZ Music Month has seen the reissue of many classic local recordings on vinyl, making it possible to hear some of the great tunes of the 60s, direct from fresh new vinyl grooves.

New Zealand has not had a vinyl pressing plant since 1987, so not many contemporary recordings are released on vinyl. Working as a vinyl-only DJ in recent years, has Cammick to search out or import vinyl releases by Fat Freddy’s Drop, Lord Echo, Ladi 6, Lorde, Evermore, Gin Wigmore, David Kilgour, Ladyhawke, Nathan Haines, Sola Rosa, Silicon etc.

Many of the musicians who appear in “Retro: 70s to 00s” will also feature in Friday 4th May DJ set: Split Enz, Hello Sailor, Sharon O’Neill, Dalvanius and the Fascinations, Dragon, Golden Harvest, Th’ Dudes, The Screaming Meemees, Herbs, Toy Love, Mark Williams, Shihad etc.
