Eddie Chambers Profile

9 Jul 2013

A major figure in the Auckland inner-city scene in the 1990s, Eddie Chambers started out working at Radio BFM as a volunteer in the late 1980s, and was soon the recording engineer in their in-house ad production crew.

He was quickly using the BFM facility to record musicians and Chamber's name pops up often on recordings of some early Auckland rap crews including Semi MCs, who won the BFM Rap Competition in 1988 – the prize included the opening slot for Run DMC. He also engineered recordings for the likes of MCOJ and Rhythm Slave, Hallelujah Picassos, and Nathan Haines, whilst at BFM.
