‘Making Tracks’ follows musically obsessed C4 presenter Nick Dwyer on an entertaining, globe-trotting journey of musical discovery as he exchanges the sounds of New Zealand for the sounds of the world!

Presenter Nick Dwyer has presented on Max TV, M2, and now C4. He has been a bFM DJ for 14 years, and is a respected international music journalist.

This series sees Nick heading to Brazil, India, China, Israel, South Africa & Jamaica on a mission to push, promote and play New Zealand music in any way he can, across the globe.

More than just promoting New Zealand music, ‘Making Tracks’ sees famous kiwi hits reinterpreted by musicians around the world. Can you imagine The Mint Chicks “Crazy? Yes! Dumb? No!” played by a Chinese Jazz Septet? Or Pluto’s “Dance Stamina” drummed out by a South African percussion group? What about The Straight Jacket Fits seminal hit “She Speeds” played on a roof top in Tel Aviv by a Ska band? Could Bic Runga’s pop ballad “Sway” be made into a Bollywood smash hit?

Equal parts entertaining romp and documentary, ‘Making Tracks’ proves once again that music makes the world go round.
