METROBEATZ

Gooba has been involved with RDU on and off for the past 19 years. He first worked at RDU as a teenager, hosting Wednesday lunch and the Monday and Friday drive shows .

Over the years he has appeared on shows such as P3, Melt and more recently, The Metrobeats show, which he took over the reigns full time in 2011.

Gooba has been responsible for the promotion of dance events from as far back as 1996. Big names include ‘New Beginnings’ from 97 to 2000, and ‘I NATION’ music festivals, 2008 to 2010 held at the famous Whitecliffs festival site. Goob central, The Old Mill & The Bass Factory Ware house have been host to many infamous underground parties.

Between 2000 and 2003 Gooba lived in both London & Brighton UK. During this time he was fortunate enough to DJ at some of Londons notorious underground “squat parties” and gain exposure to the London Sound System culture. In returning home to NZ he was inspired to build his own rig, which is now known as ‘Bass Factory Soundsystem’.
