Tiki Tane - Past, Present, Future

29 October 2007 - , , ,

Tiki Taane was the ultra enthusiastic Natty Dread that dominated stages across New Zealand, Australia and Europe in the 90's and early 2000's. In the drum and bass realm, he was known as MC Rizzla and forged a huge reputation for himself first performing with Concord Dawn, then collaborating with them on several international drum and bass anthems.
