'FOOTMAHI 2023' comes as the heavily anticipated follow-up to Student Radio Network Album of The Year (Te Tohu Kohinga Mariu) Award winner, 'FOOTMAHI 2022'. The compilation features 21 homegrown electronic dance tracks, showcasing the brilliant underground of Aotearoa.
The phrase “FOOTMAHI” was first brought to light by Big Fresh Collective's founding member MUSHMANE of Tainui.
The story goes that the BFC were huddled on a bitterly cold Ōtautahi winters afternoon watching a young in-form Shaun Johnson absolutely tear the Sydney Roosters defence to shreds with his electric “footwork” - when Mushmane screamed out “LOOK AT THE FOOTMAHI” changing the course of BFC history forever all in the birthplace of The Big Fresh Collective; The Parage on 40A Richill Street, Belfast, Ōtautahi.
The journey of Footmahi has taken Big Fresh Collective all over the motu working with and entertaining people from all walks of life that have become their whānau.
Join Big Fresh Collective in celebrating the launch of 'FOOTMAHI 2023' on Friday with an iconic release party at Christchurch's beloved FLUX.
