Sweet Sounz | Soul of the Pacific

Pet Johnson

Programme Director

Kia Ora everyone!
It’s Pet Johnson here and I’m super excited to bring you our signature selection on Sweet Sounz as the Programme Director.

I’ve studied Classical Guitar (Trinity School of Music London), Music Theory (Royal School of Music in London) and Composition (Victoria University) in Wellington.

I’ve been fortunate to travel the world doing what I love, recording and thumping the Bass guitar for the iconic Kiwi rock band, Breathe. Nowadays, I stay sharp and have the privilege of playing in Wellington’s best RnB and Soul covers band, Boutique.

As a DJ, I love dropping jams and bringing the party to the best spots in the capital city, but there’s nothing better than playing tunes at home to my 3 children and seeing them get amped about new music.

My roots are steeped in Soul and Funk, Old School Motown/Stax, RnB and Hip Hop. My passion is discovering new jams and finding new singers, beat makers and producers.

I look forward to sharing my experience and love for music with you all.
