DJ SIRVERE × CHE FU × MC ROMEZ
PLAYS: 31 DEC
Phil Bell took up the name DJ Sir-Vere over 20 years ago, though he’s never been just a turntablist. His extraordinary career has included roles as varied as gig promoter, magazine editor, television presenter, and radio station programme director. At every step, he’s pushed the NZ hip hop scene forward and his success is built on his ability to work harder than anyone else in the room and to keep going even when the task ahead is daunting. Take any crucial turning point in the path of local hip hop and it’s likely Sir-Vere was there, helping make it happen.

A founding member of the band Supergroove, as a solo artist he has gone on to sell thousands of albums both in New Zealand and internationally.
