HALFQUEEN's sets are just as unapologetic and empowered as her presence in every space. Specializing in the genre-bending sounds of club music, she is driven to connect via ass shaking. And with BBYFACEKILLA, prepare to lose your mind to a DJ that collapses the multiplicity of contemporary club music into a set that is unique, disruptive, and brimming with ecstasy.
Rooted in the experience of her Fijian and Pākehā bloodlines, HALFQUEEN’s confluence of sound is ever evolving. She has supported YG, Channel Tres, Earthgang, and is the tour DJ for JessB. She creates sets where the exchange between the audience and DJ are effervescent while decolonising the d-floor and uplifting the marginalised. She launched QTBIPOC club night FILTH with JessB.

BBYFACEKILLA is the alias of Tina Kolose, a queer Pasifika DJ. They are quickly making waves through heavy up-tempo sets, handsome selections and a natural stylistic flair. BBYFACEKILLA transcends the local trappings of scene and genre. They do so by providing a local perspective on something that is often forgotten about in club culture - that dance music was created by queer people of colour.
Their sets for the FILTH and Reform@ club nights and their System of a Brown and Hunting Ground radio shows have helped to consolidate a new scene in Tāmaki Makaurau that is diverse, aware, and ready to get raw.
