Hi, I’m Donna. When civil defence give advice on what to store in case of a crisis, they always mention batteries. They’d go first in my kit so I won’t be deprived of music…I know I’d be seriously unwell and find it hard to breathe without it! I’m happy Marty asked me onto the show. I’ll share just a smidgen of my favourites with you here on the 13th Floor and I hope you enjoy listening.

Hi I’m Kathryn, a bass player and singer turned event manager. My favourite musical moments have included opening for The Rogers Sisters, driving Dan Auerbach around Auckland, mud wrestling for a music video, putting on a rock show in a car showroom, and of course being swept away into dreamland by some of the amazing shows I’ve been to. Past flatmates will be surprised that this show doesn’t include any Eagles of Death Metal or, er, Airbourne.

My name is Christiaan de Wit aka DJ Kreitskreator. I moved from Amsterdam to Auckland four months ago because I love volcanoes, black sandy beaches and above all palm trees. Back in Amsterdam, I worked as a freelance journalist and copywriter, but also for two great record stores: Concerto and Rush Hour, the latter also running the self-titled label as well as the Kindred Spirits imprint. Here in Auckland, I still write my ass off for Groove Guide, but I also work at Real Groovy Records where I dig up a lot of stuff. I love Conch Records as well.
I am very grateful to Marty that he let me chuck a few crazy tunes on his brand new baby 13th Floor. Sit back and try to relax (not sure if that’s going to work all the way through). Enjoy!
