The Māori (pronounced Māori: [ˈmaːɔ.ɾi], or commonly /ˈmaʊri/ by English speakers) are the indigenous Polynesian people of New Zealand (Aotearoa). They arrived in New Zealand from eastern Polynesia in several waves at some time before 1300 CE. Over several centuries in isolation, the Māori developed a unique culture with their own language, a rich mythology, distinctive crafts and performing arts. They formed a tribal society based on Polynesian social customs and organisation. Horticulture flourished using plants they introduced, and after about 1450 a prominent warrior culture emerged.

When I think of New Zealand, I always think of the Māori!
Nowadays I also think of Dubstep as there’ so much great stuff coming out of there at present.
Here’s a tasty lil’ mix covering some of the emerging producers from that scene through to such luminaries as Fat Freddy’s Drop!
Here’s what Mr DJ says:
A bunch of new and not-so-new dub and dubstep tunes, all made in New Zealand.
A nice soundtrack for an evening on the beach or by the bbq after a day in the sun. Feel free to leave comments or cash.
