TAPZ is an artist representing an exciting new wave of New Zealand music. When composing, he draws on his early memories of Zimbabwe, his move to New Zealand as a pre-teen and the fearlessness of his family and friends who took the same life-changing journey. Come with us to Tapz's studio, where he makes music with Gallantino Crew member Jermaine Rogers, rides magnificent white horses and where nothing seems impossible.

In partnership with New Balance to support the release of the New Balance LAZR Sport.
