Inside A Quiet Mind, a 1998 LP by a humble young Maori dude from Tokoroa, Denver McCarthy, under the name Micronism: "the best electronic album ever made in this country".

It’s on Apple Music too. Looking forward to listening to this!

You can also get it on bandcamp too. I might be wrong, but I'm fairly certain they take much less of a cut than Google or Apple.... plus they're DRM free & have flac files.

Thanks for this - I'm a kiwi and have never heard of this album but am going to give it a "spin" sometime this week.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane. This album was a staple for me when it came out. Always wondered what happened to Denver.
His Rise & Shine EP is also fantastic. Particle Shuffle is still one of my favourite songs to chill out to after a techno show.

this is a nice album, good post

for some more good old kiwi electronica, try Pitch Black - Futureproof is their first album and it kicks ass, showing off a typically heavy dub influence.

Fat Freddy's Drop are also a good listen, though they're sometimes derided as 'barbeque reggae' - a standout track is Midnight Marauders, but I also like Dark Days (partly because i played some cello for it)

More kiwi electronica from years gone by - I'm particularly partial to Burnt by Lava Lava
