Yay May! It's always been our favourite month. Ever since 2001 that is, when the first NZ Music Month kicked off. This year we're highlighting some artists we think you deserve to hear about. We asked them to come up with a 100% Kiwi playlist to share with you. It's Aotearoa as!

Each week we'll release a new playlist, and then we're rounding out the month with a special edition of Friday Night Bites - where you could see some of the artists live at BurgerFuel HQ.

This week is producer n1ghtmar3cat. He also goes by the name Dave Johnston and you may know him as the drummer of Villainy. Check out the playlist from n1ghtmar3cat below, and make sure you tune in to hear the full story behind the selections on-air. Happy NZ Music Month 2022 from Radio BurgerFuel.


We grabbed a brew with Dave and he took us through some sweet Kiwi tracks from the likes of Broods, The Naked & Famous, CHAII, and Shihad. As you might have guesses, it covers the full gamut - kind of like n1ghtmar3cat versus VIllainy. Go forth and enjoy.

More new music is due from n1ghtmar3cat in the next couple of months, make sure you keep an eye out for it!
