Jameson Announces the New Zealand Arrival of Jameson House of Rounds Feat. Melodownz, Wax Mustang, PollyHill and Katanayagi Twins

May 6th 2021
Jameson today announces that its renowned Jameson House of Rounds will cross the ditch, bringing an unforgettable evening of hip-hop, Irish whiskey, and community spirit to Auckland’s Studio, the Venue on Saturday, May 22.

Curated by the tastemaking hand of SNIFFERS, some of New Zealand’s brightest artists including Melodownz, Wax Mustang, and PollyHill will take the mic, rendering the NZ Jameson House of Rounds debut unmissable.
Having successfully established the Australian series in 2019, and after a COVID-induced hiatus, Jameson House of Rounds is back on tour, visiting beloved Sydney venues in April and May, before making its way to Auckland for the very first time. On Saturday, May 22 from Studio, the Venue, Jameson House of Rounds proudly welcomes West Auckland poet and rapper, Melodownz. From collaborating with Denzel Curry to a BROCKHAMPTON co-signs, Melodownz has stayed high achieving and well-loved by New Zealand’s hip-hop community. Joining him is Dunedin-raised MC, Wax Mustang who transcends genres and time with finesse, embracing 80s spun backbeats and groove-heavy hooks with his straight spat verses. Having performed at festivals across the country, Jameson House of Rounds provides the perfect setting for his next performance.
Adding to the bill is charismatic and expectation-defying artist PollyHill. Her most recent single “Sweepstake” with Church Leon entered the New Zealand charts with her snarling spoken words and is a dynamic rollercoaster of energy soon to be matched from the Jameson House of Rounds stage. Finally, sister DJ duo Katanayagi Twins will spin selections from their eclectic collection of most loved tracks.
Jameson House of Rounds proudly supports MusicHelps, a unique New Zealand charity dedicated to facilitating change through music. MusicHelps has invested in more than 70 projects to change the lives of over 60,000 New Zealanders in need, as well as continue to provide emergency assistance to Kiwi music people experiencing hardship and illness.
Jameson House of Rounds is a free event series, set to shine a light on New Zealand’s most exciting talents in hip-hop, thanks to co-curators SNIFFERS. Don’t miss grabbing your mates for this inaugural get-together, best enjoyed with a glass of Jamo, dry and lime in hand.
