Batcave Beats

Batcave Beats is a show for those who are not into classic mainstream music. DJ Curehead brings you music from the subcultures: goth, EBM, industrial, punk, post-punk, and everything in between.

Airing time: Fridays at 11pm

Welcome to "Batcave Beats" with DJ Curehead, an old goth veteran from Germany who has been weaving his dark magic in New Zealand for 17 years. With his roots in the industrial band Flout and his solo project PTSD, DJ Curehead brings some new tunes to the airwaves.

"Batcave Beats" is a captivating fusion of goth, EBM, darkwave, punk, and post-punk, delving into the shadows to unearth the most enthralling sounds of the underground. Not only do we delve into the pulsating rhythms of international acts, but we also proudly showcase the haunting melodies of New Zealand's very own homegrown alternative bands.

Join DJ Curehead every Friday at 11 PM as he takes you on a sonic journey through the enigmatic realms of the dark and the mysterious. It's not just a show, it's an immersive experience into the heart of alternative music culture, where the shadows come alive and the beats resonate with your very soul.
