Welcome to Woodcut​

Since 1999 Woodcut Production’s studio has been supplying superior quality music productions to the film and television industries as well as producing critically and commercially successful albums and singles.

The producers and engineers at Woodcut are among the best in the business and were behind the record breaking number one single ‘Brother’ by Smashproof (featuring Gin Wigmore), that held the top spot on New Zealand’s music charts for eleven consecutive weeks – the longest ever by a New Zealand artist.

That is just one of a list of achievements by the Woodcut crew who have also collected four Tui awards (along with numerous other artist awards), produced two double platinum singles, and two gold singles.

This industry recognition illustrates the fact that the team at Woodcut live to create great music and this flows into the company’s main focus – composing unforgettable high quality original compositions on time and on budget.

Woodcut’s facilities are world class. Producing cutting edge music requires cutting edge technology and Woodcut’s studios are designed to produce music to the highest standard. But the equipment would be useless without musical talent and Woodcut has a wealth of it – producing, publishing and supporting artistic endeavours with a stable of top kiwi talent.

Woodcut is the home of Move The Crowd and Empire Records – two fast growing labels covering the full spectrum of musical genres featuring ground breaking local artists.  These include household names like the record-breaking Smashproof, the king of New Zealand Hip-hop Sid Diamond, renown songwriter TY and young acts such as Tazman Jack, Cody Wave and bKIDD.
