BAITERCELL ft Huia and Rei - TOKA
TOKA - to be solid or stand strong.
With beautiful slick Kog Studio production, deep bass with conscious and political lyrics in te reo Māori (NZ’s first language) Baitercell is one of NZ’s most influential electronic music acts that over the last 24 years has helped pioneer dance music in Aotearoa and worked with a huge range of artists.
Currently including Rei and Huia, and drummer Corez Freidlander, this new world fusion is the future of Aotearoa NZ music, with our nations languages being interwoven more into our music scope everyday.
